Orange Empire CO-OP

Post by jamcool » 25 Apr 2006 23:49

I had an uncle who worked in PHX for Alfred M Lewis, the West Coast grocery wholesaler who sold under the "Orange Empire" banner. Has anybody ever seen a store using the Orange Empire name? I know A M Lewis was disbanded in the 80s-Lucky picked up their PHX warehouse then Fry's bought it when Lucky pulled out of AZ.

I do not remember any grocer using the name Orange Empire or A.M. Lewis. I do remember when I worked for Michael's Markets in Orange, we had to hand deliver our grocery orders twice a week to their warehouse in Riverside just off the Riverside Freeway.

As a receiving clerk, while I was kid, I remember receiving three loads a week from them. I believe they warehoused exclusively bulk products
