In 1917, Robinson and Crawford merged Acme Markets with four other Philadelphia area grocery chains, and the combined company was named American Stores. The company acquired California's Alpha-Beta stores in 1961. American Stores was acquired in 1979 by Skaggs Drug Centers which took the American Stores name, and relocated the headquarters to Salt Lake City, Utah. In 1984 American Stores acquired Jewel Companies, Inc., which included several large chains: Jewel and Jewel-Osco in the Chicago area; Eisner Foods in downstate Illinois and Indiana (later merged into Jewel-Osco); Buttrey Food & Drug in Montana and other Western states; Star Markets in New England; Osco Drug in the Midwest, Northwest, and New England, and Sav-On Drugs in California, Nevada, and Texas. In 1988 it acquired Lucky Stores, also in California, and then divested Alpha Beta to the Yucaipa Cos., Buttrey Food & Drug was spun off to its management, which subsequently sold the chain to Albertsons (prior to American Stores merger with Albertsons); and Star Market was sold to Investcorp, which subsequently sold the chain to J Sainsbury plc, who merged it with their Shaw's Markets chain, which was itself sold to Albertsons in 2004.
