Gable Safeway(?) in Richland, WA

Post by ajsanjua » 30 Jan 2009 15:12

I also spotted this interesting piece further down Jadwin Ave. in/near downtown Richland, WA. I suspected at first that this was a c. late 1960s-1970's gable Safeway, but a few elements seem to be out of place, at least when looking at a 'normal' Safeway, esp. the front rather than side doors, plus the roof not being high enough, the gable's angle too shallow and only two rows of glass-plate windows rather than the usual three. Was it just a different Safeway design or (more probably) that of another chain?

Looks like an old Albertsons store to me.
