There's also the asian Kukjae Market at 2350 Junipero Serra Blvd in Daly City that was a Mayfair at least as far back as the early 1960s. I was given the impression (I can't remember by whom) that the Daly City store also operated as a Safeway very briefly. It would make sense, I guess, since Brent...

Re: The Akron

Maybe I'm mis-remembering, but weren't there Akrons in the Bay Area as well? I seem to recall one in the Fishermen's Wharf area -- maybe at the North Point shopping center? And also in San Jose.

Immediately after this location closed as a Safeway in the early 80's became a "Food Barn". Pops and I would stop there before going to watch the Giants at the Stick.

Corti had a market in the Arden Fair Mall adjacent to a 60's era "Food Circus" and a T-Drugs. I believe the entire building was demolished and a Max's Opera Cafe and movie theatre occupy the area that housed the above businesses.

Newport Blvd. Stater Bros.

I don't know when the Stater Bros. at 2180 Newport Blvd. Costa Mesa opened, however, it appears to be a 1960's vintage with neon and terrazzo floors. The store recently did a partial remodel.
