Victoria Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1925-1955

This is a list of all chain grocery locations my research has uncovered in Victoria between 1925 and 1955, 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.

View and download a copy of this location spreadsheet via Google Sheets.


  • After 1950, city directories no longer include a classified directory for Vancouver, so 1955 is the latest point I feel comfortable including.

Store tags:

  • OK Stores
  • Piggly Wiggly
  • Safeway
  • Superior/Super-Valu
