History of Safeway

Safeway logo

The original slogan was “an admonition and an invitation” to “Drive the Safeway; buy the Safeway”. The point of the name was that the grocery operated on a cash-and-carry basis—it did not offer credit, as grocers traditionally had done. It was the ‘safe way’ to buy because a family could not get into debt via its grocery bill (as many families did at the time, especially during the Great Depression).

In April 1915, Marion Barton Skaggs purchased his father’s 576-square-foot (53.5 m2) grocery store in American Falls, Idaho, for $1,089. The chain, which operated as two separate businesses, Skaggs Cash Stores and Skaggs United Stores, grew quickly, and Skaggs enlisted the help of his five brothers to help grow the network of stores. M.B.’s business strategy, to give his customers value and to expand by keeping a narrow profit margin, proved spectacularly successful. By 1926, he had opened 428 Skaggs stores in 10 states. M.B. almost doubled the size of his business that year when he merged his company with 322 Safeway stores and incorporated as Safeway, Inc.


In 1926, Charles E. Merrill, the founder of the Merrill Lynch brokerage firm, saw an opportunity to consolidate the West Coast grocery industry.Towards this end, he purchased the 322-store Safeway chain of W.R.H. Weldon, who wished to exit retailing and concentrate on wholesale.On July 1, 1926, Safeway merged with the 673 stores from Skaggs United Stores of Idaho and Skaggs Cash Stores of California on $1.5 million plus 30,000 shares in the merged firm. On completion of the Skaggs/Safeway merger, M. B. Skaggs became the Chief Executive of the business.Two years later, M.B. listed Safeway on the New York Stock Exchange. The merger instantly created the largest chain of grocery stores west of the Mississippi.

Nowadays,Safeway remains one of the largest supermarket chain stores in the United States with Forbes listing it in the top 100 largest retail stores.
