About Safeway

Safeway Inc. is a group of grocery stores that began in April 1915 in American Falls, Idaho. The store’s founder, S. M. Skaggs, was a Baptist preacher who was against “the growing evil of installment purchasing” in the system of grocers and storekeepers. He chose to open a store called Skaggs where people could pick out their own items from the shelves and pay for them at the cash register. Since S.M. Skaggs would rather spend his time on his mission, his son Marion Barton Skaggs (M.B. Skaggs) made an offer of $1088 (equal to $31500 in 2022) to buy the store. He opened a second shop in Burley, Idaho, three years later. Skaggs kept a lot of shops in Idaho and Montana so he could keep growing his business. By 1926, M.B. Skaggs had bought a grocery store and a coffee company called Skaggs Cash Store and Skaggs United Stores. He then hired his five brothers to help grow the brand and built 428 stores in 10 states. Also, Skaggs nearly doubled the size of his business when it combined with 322 Sam Seelig Company stores. He called the new company Safeway Inc. because he didn’t want his name on a chain that might last longer than he does. The name was meant to show that this was the “safe way” to buy food, since it could only be bought with cash and not credit. Also, a family wouldn’t have to go into debt because of a store bill, which was common at the time and helped cause the Great Depression. Later that same year, Charles E. Merrill, who started the brokerage company Merrill Lynch, had a plan to combine the West Coast grocery business. He bought W.R.H. Weldon’s share of 322 Safeway stores and offered Skaggs $1.5 million plus 30,000 shares of the new company, which Skaggs accepted. When Skaggs and Safeway joined together, M.B. Skaggs became the Chief Executive. Safeway was put on the New York Stock Exchange two years after that. In the 1930s, the grocery chain started charging by the pound, putting “sell by” dates on things that would spoil soon, giving nutritional information, and adding parking lots, which was a new idea at the time. After the merger, Safeway became the biggest chain of food stores west of the Mississippi River. The company was based in Reno, Nevada, until 1929, when it moved to Oakland, California, where it stayed until 1996, when it moved to Pleasanton, California. Up until the year 2000, the company had grown to include many US states and countries like Canada, the UK, Australia, West Germany, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan. Outside of the West Coast, the growth did not work out well. In 2014, Safeway was thinking about selling, and Albertson’s made an offer to buy the business for $9.4 billion. On January 30, 2015, the merger was completed, and the Safeway brands were added to Albertsons’ business. According to a new merger deal, Kroger wants to buy Albertsons for about $24.6 billion.
