Santa Barabra, which introduced the world to An American Family (specifically the Loud family) and to Motel 6, was home to a number of chain locations including Piggly Wiggly, Safeway, A&P, Jodano’s, Smith’s Food King, and Lucky.
This is a list of all known chain grocery addresses in Santa Barbara, Goleta, and Montecito between 1926 and 1985, 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.
