    We had 2 Safeways on Guam back in the 70’s 80’s-90’s.
    You should include US territories in your chronology. We are part of the United States

      This particular page of the site is about Safeway divisions in 1932 from an official company source. It seems unlikely that there were Safeway locations in Guam in 1932. As far as the larger site, I’d love to include Guam as well as the other US territories, but the data sources I use (see the methodology page above) either don’t exist or or not available to me for these places — or for some places in the continental US as well.
