Spokane Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations. 1925-2015

This is a list of all chain grocery locations my research has uncovered in Spokane between 1925 and 2015, 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.

  • 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.
  • Blog post detailing Safeway’s 1941 locations in Spokane here.
