This is a list of all known chain grocery addresses in Spokane between 1925 and 2015, 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.

- The 1925 Piggly Wiggly location was apparently unrelated to the later chain that was ultimately operated in Spokane by Safeway.
- Spokane maintained an unusual address format at least through the 1960s: Instead of “100 N. Main St.” addresses were specified as “N100 Main St.” I have used the more conventional form here, which seems to work fine with Google Maps and also seems to be the currently preferred convention (since the 1990s).
- The south and east suburban listings may be somewhat incomplete for 2010 and 2015.
