Safeway was originally founded in Los Angeles, California as the Sam Seelig company in 1912. Seelig left the company in 1924 to pursue real estate and the company was renamed to Safeway.
By 1926, there were 322 stores in southern California and controlling interest in the company was sold to Merrill Lynch.
In 1927, the company went public. In 1929, the company expanded to Canada.
By 1932, there were 3400 Safeway stores.
In 1959, the first store was opened in Alaska.
In 1986, the company was taken private by private equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts. The company subsequently sold off many of its holdings to pay down assumed debt.
In 1990, the company went public again.
Today, Safeway has over 1500 stores in the United States and 224 stores in Canada. 80% of the stores are located in the Western parts of each country.
