Did You Know… where this business was located? The Safeway Grocery was located in the building that is home today of Perry Public Safety services. Yes, the Safeway’s former home is now home to Perry’s Police and Fire Departments. Safeway later moved into the East Perry Plaza, in the spot that is Stokley Lumber today.


Perry has been home to other grocery stores over the years. Supervalu, United, No Frills, Sack n’ Save and Thriftway, to name a few. What I miss are the small neighborhood stores. The 11th Street Grocery and Mrs. Wilsons were a few I was sent to by my mother to pick up things for her. The Grocery Stores you remember, are determined by when you grew up in Perry, as well as what part of town you called home.
