  • Following the Carrs/Safeway merger in 1999, stores were listed under a variety of names (Carrs, Safeway, and Carrs Safeway) and sometimes under multiple names.
  • There were apparently some Piggly Wiggly locations in the 1960s, but I can find no listings in the city directories for them.

Store tags:

  • Carrs
  • Fred Meyer
  • New Sagaya
  • Piggly Wiggly (not reflected in list)
  • Safeway

    There was a Piggly Wiggly in Anchorage (Spenard) in 1964. My husband, 6 month old son and I were in it when the March 27th earthquake hit!!!
