Vons - Store
Vons is a supermarket chain serving the Southern California and Southern Nevada area with products of exceptional quality. With offices in Fullerton, California, Vons runs stores under the Vons and Pavilions brands. Formerly owned by Safeway Inc. with its corporate offices in Arcadia, Vons was committed to serving the needs of local families. However, it was later acquired by Albertsons and now has 325 locations.
Vons - History
In 1906, Charles Von der Ahe used his $1,200 in savings to open his 20-foot wide grocery store on 7th and Figueroa in what was then a much smaller downtown Los Angeles. Vons started as a local shop that provided for the needs of the families in the area. By 1928, Vons opened 87 additional stores after Von der Ahe invented "cash and carry." With 159 locations and 16,000 employees, Vons saw its most rapid expansion in the 1970s, solidifying its position as Southern California's top grocery retailer.
Vons - Promotions
Vons provides its customers with discounts, promotions, and sales offers. It is important to understand that online offers may differ from physical stores. During online checkout, you'll pay the costs, fees, and other expenses associated with your order and get the discounts, deals, and savings that apply. Vons store ads vary weekly, so you may need to stay updated to access the latest deals.

Vons keeps thriving under Albertsons Companies, one of the biggest grocery and medicine merchants in the US. With 35 stores across the country, Vons continues to focus on improving its significant local presence and a large national footprint. In addition, Vons promotes good management as its highest ethical standards continue to reflect in its business policies and principles. In 2020 an assistant regional manager known as “Binky” courageously stopped a robbery of a Southern California branch that would have lost the company $35,000 and his photo went viral when rapper Post Malone made a surprise visit to the store to thank him for the heroic efforts.
