I know there was at least one Pay'n Takit store (which was Safeway owned) in Kirkland at that time, and one in Kent. I believe the current local Safeway store in Kirkland has a "Serving Kirkland since 1928" sign on the wall, but I believe that a Skaggs United store (later merged into Safeway) would have been the earliest one in Kirkland, and probably the one that the date refers to.

Here's a photo of the Pay'n Takit store in Kent on the occasion of a flood in 1931:

I would also appreciate a list of all the Portland/Vancouver-area Safeways from these city directories, from this particular year you found and others. My want list concerns the years: 1930, 1935, 1940, 1945, 1950, 1955, 1960, 1965, 1970, 1975, 1980 and 1985.

Thank you,



Ben Edge
