Safeway Divisions, 1929

Printable version

Safeway Division

The districts noted “also Piggly Wiggly” have stores listed as being in the Piggly Wiggly Division as well as stores in the Safeway Division. Safeway and Piggly Wiggly seem to have operated side by side in many districts with no distinction between the two names; the organizational structure seems to have been based on a “critical mass” of each brand. For example, if a district consisted primarily of Piggly Wiggly stores, all the stores in that district seem to have been placed in the Piggly Wiggly Division. If a critical mass of both brands was present, the Piggly Wiggly stores were listed as being part of Piggly Wiggly Division as well, while the Safeway stores were not.
