Re: Safeway 639 Port Angeles Lincoln Street

I was searching old newspapers and discovered an article in the Port Angeles Evening news discussing the opening of the new 25,000 square foot Port Angeles Safeway on January 24, 1967, one of the pictures showed business leaders being served breakfast in the new Snack Bar which was a completely new ...

Safeway 1986 & Unsettling Times Eastern Division

Attached is a picture of Eastern Division area Safeway store and employees I found from a UFCW (union) publication in my files from 1986. It was an anxious time for Safeway as they blocked a hostile take over by the Dart Group and liquidated property and whole Divisions to pay KKR to buy them. The E...

Queen Anne Safeway #368 Seattle

There are/were two Queen Anne Safeways, both Marinas, an upper and lower. The lower was torn down in the 2004 and a new store was built with condos above it. Safeway would like to replace the upper Queen Anne store #368 built in the 1960s with a modern store with housing above it. There are a number...

Re: Texas Updates

hey Kikla, good detective work there, who would have thought that Tom's is a Marina in hiding. Safeway exited Dallas due to the buy out, where Safeway needed cash and paid KKR to purchase the company and thwart a hostile takeover. Safeway which had entered Texas in the 1950s sold their Dallas area s...

Hey Kikla, the Liberty Lake was after my time, I left Safeway in 99, my gut would tell me this is a converted Albertsons from the google cam shot of the front of the building

Re: NEW: Spokane WA, 1925-1960

Andrew, I'm impressed you were able to find that Google cam shot, I remember the barrel roof store well, it was used for storage and for some store computer training in the early 1990s when all stores were converted to IBM 4680. The barrel roof store was converted to office space for a while (local...

Re: NEW: Spokane WA, 1925-1960

Thank you for this. Albertsons seems to have swept into Spokane like a storm over the last three decades! It's bittersweet to see that the 1950s Safeway at 1617 W 3rd Ave lasted close to half a century in operation, only to close after 2006. It's still in operation as a supermarket, however, and it...

Re: Mayfair Market Palm Springs

Kikla really good detective work there, I was aware there was a Mayfair at that location on South Palm Canyon when I started visiting the desert in the late 80s, but the site has been barren for quite a long time. Safeway left the 350 South Palm Canyon location sometime in the late 60s early 70s lea...
