Tulsa Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1925-2015

This is a list of all chain grocery locations my research has uncovered in Tulsa between 1925 and 2021, 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.

  • A lot of small local chains and co-ops here. I suspect the Sipes family was connected to several oth them.
  • Safeway departed in 1987 and Albertsons left twenty years later in 2007.
  • More later.
