History

M.B. Skaggs founded the original Safeway, then known as Skaggs Stores, in 1915. A decade later Skaggs Stores had expanded to over 400 stores in 10 different states. The company’s current structure was formed in a 1926 merger between Skaggs Stores and another grocer called Seelig Stores, which had recently changed its name to Safeway. The resulting company was incorporated as Safeway and moved its headquarters to California. Since then Safeway has increased its locations to nearly 2,000.
