It All Started in 1906
Downtown Los Angeles was a much smaller town when Charles Von der Ahe opened his 20-foot wide Groceteria on 7th and Figueroa in 1906 with $1,200 in savings. It was a neighborhood store that catered to the needs of local families. Von der Ahe pioneered "cash and carry" as an alternative to "charge and delivery." His formula proved so successful that by 1928, Vons had expanded to 87 stores.
Through the Years
Its growth and innovation over the next 70 years was non-stop. In 1948, the brothers opened their most ambitious store at the corner of Santa Barbara and Crenshaw. Thanks to the introduction of pre-packaged perishables, they were able to offer some of the first self-service produce, meat and deli departments.
Today, Vons operates as a banner of Albertsons Companies, one of the largest food and drug retailers in the United States. With both a strong local presence and national scale, the company operates stores across 35 states and the District of Columbia under 20 well-known banners.
