Re: Safeway Grand Opening-Photo-Unknown Date & Location

...Ready For It? This Safeway/Thrifty Drug combo is at 3528 & 3526 W Cactus Rd. in Phoenix-they are now Pep Boys & Nick's Furniture. This plaza was built in 1971, and the original streetlamps are still in the parking lot. As you can see, the former Safeway had its awning altered a little. The former...

Re: Salem Center Mall, Salem, Oregon

Salem Center Mall was originally called Nordstrom Mall. The Meier and Frank opened in 1955, and the Rite Aid was a PayLess that opened in 1963. The building was halved in the early 2000s, and the other half became TJ Maxx. The Meier and Frank building has a small mezzanine sales floor only accessibl...

Re: What did this CVS used to be?

This Woolworth's closed in 1989. You can still see the original terrazo floor in the stock room through the doors on the left wall, near the center.

Re: Modesto, CA former Lucky (?)

The Modesto Lucky on Dale/Standiford is my all time fave grocery store. We went there several times a week. It was next to a Long's Drug store. While Save Mart may have acquired the building in 97, they had stopped being Lucky long before that. Actually, this store was still a Lucky until 1997; I r...

Re: Centro-Mart First Location Photo

VERY nice photos, thanks for sharing. Groceteria has a black and white close-up of this store on his flickr photostream. Even though the neon sign read CentrOMart, the sign on the window read Daylite Market. I think the CentrOMart's in downtown Brentwood and Oakley originally went under Daylite Mark...

Re: Downtown Bellevue marina Safeway finally closed

Cool! Yes all marina Safeway's had unpainted beams originally. The diagonal wood slats in the back were used throughout Seattle-area marina Safeway's (of course they're all painted over now), along with the sandstone brick in the outside front by the entrances. Same architect(s) and prototype, I gue...
