This is a list of all known chain grocery addresses in Orane County between 1925 and 1950 (Santa Ana and Orange), 1925 and 1975 (Fullerton, Brea, La Harbra, etc.) and 1925 and 1940 (other areas), compiled from city directories, telephone books, and other sources. It is generated through a live Google Spreadsheet so it reflects the latest information I have.
- I currently have limited access to data for Orange County and hope to expand the date range here in the future.
- The 1971-1975 data from Fullerton. etc. does not include any listings for Safeway. No listings were present in the directory I used.
