Fred Meyer Auto Centers

Post by StoreLiker2013 » 25 Mar 2017 20:21

Does anyone remember when Fred Meyer once had auto centers where not only could you purchase certain parts like tires for your car or truck, but at certain locations you could also have your vehicle be serviced outright? Some were in separate buildings (many of which became Home Improvement & Garden Centers post-1977), others were simply somewhere in the main store.

Here's the list of Fred Meyer Auto Centers that existed in their final year (1977):
Southeast - 5035 SE 82nd Ave. (at Mitchell St.), remodeled to an HI&GC in 1979.
Beaverton - 4840 SW Western Ave.
Gresham - 2497 SE Burnside Rd.
Tigard - 11565 SW Pacific Hwy.

A year earlier (1976)... besides the above four, there were also:
Gateway - 10000 NE Halsey St.
Hazel Dell (WA) - 7600 NE Highway 99, remodeled to an HI&GC in 1978.
South Salem - 3550 Commercial St. SE
North Salem - 2925 Broadway St. NE
East Salem - 3740 Market St. NE
Longview (WA) - 3184 Ocean Beach Hwy.

Tigard and Longview have Les Schwab Tire Centers in those buildings today.

The Longview location you can tell at least was built around the same time as the main Fred Meyer store in the mid-1970s. The Les Schwab has a few features shared with the main Fred Meyer store.
