Safeway 639 Port Angeles Lincoln Street

Post by explorersea » 07 Jan 2019 22:18

The original Lincoln Street Safeway in Port Angeles WA opened as a Marina style in the 1960's, this store included the popular "Snack Bar" that were found in many Marina style stores of the 60's, this store in particular was a high profit store from opening and always a apple in the eye of Safeway Seattle execs, expansion discussions began in the 1970's, and by 1980 Safeway purchased an alley way and several older homes enabling them to double square footage. The expansion was a temporary gap and not the store Safeway had originally envisioned, they would have to wait 15 years for permission to build a new store from the ground up, the new store opened in 1996. The 38,000 foot Marina/1980 expansion store would be demolished just after the new store opened just a few feet away. A fuel station was added later to make the property complete (under that 1980 expansion photographed is a Marina in hiding).

That has to be the first time I've ever seen the Super Store sign on the right side of the building outside of Texas, and specifically, the Dallas division. Also, here it was usually reserved for stores 45,000 square feet and larger, with pharmacy, deli, bakery, and full camera departments.
