Notes:

  • Kroger owned the Sipes Self-Serving and Piggly Wiggly stores in Oklahoma City (but apparently not the ones in Tulsa) in 1930 and seems never to have operated under its own name there.
  • Both chains were sold to Safeway around 1935 and were consolidated with the existing Skaggs Safeway chain in operation there.
  • Humpty Dumpty and Standard Food Stores were apparently related to each other and to the Goldman Bros. chain.
  • A&P apparently did not fare well in Oklahoma City, exiting after less than a decade.
