Memories of old supermarkets, via Miscmedia. Up here in the Northwest, we had a lot of these old Safeways. There are even a few of the older ones still operating, as far as I know. When I was little, there were also Lucky, A&P, and Tradewell, all of which are long-gone (from the PNW, anyway). QFC and Fred Meyer remain, though they’re now part of the Kroger empire. There’s still a little bit of old Seattle to be found at the QFC site: the Holman Road QFC (the former Art’s) has a Boat Supply Department to provide provisions to fishing fleets and isolated coastal villages.
