A couple notes if you would like to add them:

1219 Broadway: still open as Albertsons, plans for new replacement store were recently announced and this location will eventually be demolished.

1515 W. State Street: Currently Rite Aid (Is 1514 correct?)

1100 Vista Avenue: Currently Rite Aid

5018 Franklin Road: A Fred Meyer is now at this site.

I'm happy to see that Boise had the Safeway Marinas that Missoula lacked! One of them, anyway: 1515 W. State St., a spectacular example that still stands with an original facade. Safeway seems to have closed the store by 1980, shortly before it bailed out of the territory entirely. Rite Aid (meh) inhabits the building now.

The Buttrey-to-Albertsons transition is evident here. They didn't reoccupy every Buttrey, though, and the map makes it plainly obvious why: Both 160 N. 16th and 7316 W. Fairview Ave. were stone's throws from pre-existing Albertsons (Albertsonses?).
"The pale pastels which have been featured in most food stores during the past 20 years are no longer in tune with the mood of the 1970s."
