About Safeway

Safeway Inc. is a grocery store chain founded in April 1915 in American Falls, Idaho. S. M. Skaggs, the company’s founder, was a Baptist minister who opposed “the growing evil of installment purchasing” within the system of grocers and merchants. He decided to open Skaggs, a store where customers reach for their purchases from store shelves and pay at the checkout counter. Since S.M. Skaggs would rather devote his time to his ministry, his son Marion Barton Skaggs (M.B. Skaggs) offered to purchase the store for $1088 (equivalent to $31500 in 2022). After three years, he launched a second store in Burley, Idaho. Skaggs continued to expand his business by maintaining numerous stores in Idaho and Montana. M.B. Skaggs acquired a grocery store and a coffee company named Skaggs Cash Store and Skaggs United Stores in 1926, recruited his five siblings to expand the brand, and opened 428 stores in 10 states. In addition, Skaggs nearly doubled the scale of his business when it merged with 322 Sam Seelig Company stores and incorporated the merger as Safeway Inc., as he believed that a chain that could outlive him should not bear his name. The purpose of the name was to indicate that this was the “safe way” to purchase food because it was purchased with cash and not credit. Additionally, a family would not be in debt due to a store expense, as was the case for many families during the Great Depression. Later that year, Charles E. Merrill, the proprietor of Merrill Lynch, had a vision of consolidating the West Coast grocery industry. He purchased W.R.H. Weldon’s portion of 322 Safeway stores and offered Skaggs $1.5 million in addition to 30,000 shares of the merging firm, which Skaggs accepted. As a result of the Skaggs/Safeway merger, M.B. Skaggs was appointed CEO. Safeway was listed on the New York Stock Exchange two years later. In the 1930s, the supermarket chain introduced pricing by the pound, “sell by” dates on perishable items, nutritional information, and parking facilities, a novel concept at the time. The merger made Safeway the largest supermarket chain west of the Mississippi River immediately. In 1929, the corporation moved its headquarters from Reno, Nevada to Oakland, California, where it remained until 1996, when it moved to Pleasanton, California. Until the year 2000, the company expanded into many US states and other countries, including Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, West Germany, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan. Unfortunately, expansion beyond the West Coast was unsuccessful. In 2014, Safeway considered selling the company, and Albertson’s offered to acquire it for $9.4 billion. On January 30, 2015, the merger was consummated and the Safeway brands were integrated into Albertsons’ operations. According to a new merger agreement, Kroger intends to acquire Albertsons for an estimated $24.6 billion.
