Cool! Even the incinerator chimney remains, as well as the original streetlamps in Westfort Food's east parking lot.

Re: Former 1955 Safeway - 303 Highland Ave, National City

I found another newspaper photo of the National City Safeway, days before opening. It was said to be large enough "to enclose five of Safeway's pre-war stores":

Re: Former 1955 Safeway - 303 Highland Ave, National City

Thanks for drawing those comparisons, Andrew. That's very good insight. I agree that it's fascinating how an international chain Safeway could maintain such a uniform architectural style in all their regions. Is that Port Arthur Safeway building still standing? Thanks also for the current photo of t...

Re: Former 1954 Safeway San Francisco - 3132 Clement St.

You're welcome klkla. A long time ago, Groceteria had photos of that Safeway when it was abandoned. Well, Andronico's will be moving in after all!

Former 1954 Safeway San Francisco - 3132 Clement St.

I also found a photo of this now-demolished Safeway in The San Francisco Examiner archives, from April 1989. A new six-story building housing Safeway and apartments above was being proposed. Love that embedded circle 'S': <a href="https://www.newspapers.com/clip/49244042/safeway-3132-clement-st...

Former 1955 Safeway - 303 Highland Ave, National City

At 28,900 square feet total, this Safeway claimed to have the largest sales floor area of any of their stores at the time. It opened in October 1955: https://www.newspapers.com/clip/49229497/safeway-3rd-highland-grand-opening/ https://www.newspapers.com/clip/49246141/ It also shows up in some 1970 p...

Here is a 1960s aerial photo of the King's Court shopping center, located at Blossom Hill Rd. & Los Gatos Blvd. in Los Gatos, CA. The shopping center opened in December 1960, and featured a 22,000-square-foot Safeway. That former Safeway is now Lunardi's, and it carries a false facade which obsc...
