Carrs-Safeway POS Data, AS2, EDI 852, Supplier Central
Carrs-Safeway is an Alaskan supermarket chain based in Anchorage, Alaska. It is said that 60% of the entire population of Alaska lives within three miles of a Carrs store. The company has small outlying "bush" stores to serve the state's scattered citizens, the bulk of the sites are large supermarket/drugstore combinations that respond to local need and interests in Fairbanks, Anchorage and the Kenai Peninsula. The company was originally established in 1950 when Larry Carr and his brother Bernard opened a small grocery store in Anchorage. Their father joined the company in 1954, and Barney Gottstein began a formal business partnership with the group in 1960. Gottstein himself had founded a successful grocery business beginning in 1915 in Anchorage. Larry Carr and Barney Gottstein sold the company to an employee ownership group in 1990, and the company was finally purchased by Safeway in 1999. The merger caused stores to be renamed Carrs-Safeway, and customers had to begin using loyalty cards.
