NEW; Anchorage, 1968 and 2018

Post by Groceteria » 22 Jan 2019 23:08

This is not a great list; there is pretty much NO data online for historical Anchorage addresses and all I could find was a 1968 white pages in the bowels of the Internet Archive on a site that no longer exists. I'll flesh this out the next time I happen to be in Seattle or Anchorage, which may be a while.

I have a few other scattered addresses, but my policy is only to post entire years. Feel free to add any know locations to this thread, though.

131 N Bragaw is the current location of the Mountain View Red Apple Supermarket.
The 9th & Gambell and Bragaw Safeways closed when the Northway Mall (Penland Parkway) Safeway opened. The Penland Parkway location was renamed to Carrs after the merger.
The 9th & Gambell and West Northern Lights Safeways had Super S drug stores attached. These were later turned into Pay & Saves. Almost all of the shopping centers where Safeway was located in the Municipality of Anchorage and Wasilla also had Pay & Save as an anchor. I think the only exception was the short-lived Jewel Lake store.

Great info. Thanks.

Just FYI, I will be greatly expanding the Anchorage list within a month or two. I've found a source for Anchorage city directories much closer to home (since a trip to Alaska is sadly not in the budget this year).

Anchorage is now updated to reflect stores from 1963 to 2018.
