Anaheim and OC Beaches Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1925-1940

This is a list of all chain grocery locations my research has uncovered 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. There may be some omissions due to incomplete or missing data, etc. and I welcome suggestions and corrections. Please read about my methodology for more information about what I do and do not include.

  • 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.
