More About Vons
Vons is a supermarket chain currently owned by Albertsons. It’s based in Southern California and Southern Nevada. It was previously owned by Safeway. Its headquarters is in Fullerton, California.
The store was founded in 1906. The founder was a Danish-American businessman called Charles Von der Ahe. By 1928, the number had quickly grown to 87 stores, after being sold to MacMarr Stores.
Twenty years later, Vons opened its first deli market; it offered pre-packaged products. Ten years later, by 1958, Vons’ stores had doubled in number, becoming the third-largest supermarket chain in Los Angeles.
Vons operated as a subsidiary for Safeway until the merger between Albertsons and Safeway happened. It has been working under Albertsons since then.
