In 1961, the company acquired California's Alpha-Beta stores. The company itself was acquired in 1979 by Skaggs Drug Centers, which took the American Stores name, and the company located its headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah. The company expanded further by acquiring in 1984 the Jewel supermarket chain, which had owned Osco since 1961.

The company ceased to exist when in 1998 American Stores was taken over by Albertson's. All of their former divisions except for Lucky Stores still exist, while Albertson's rebranded Lucky because both chains had had stores in the same region. There are four other former divisions which Albertson's has preserved: Acme Markets, Jewel-Osco, Osco Drug and Sav-on Drugs. There will be no more freestanding Sav-on or Osco stores soon because CVS Corporation will take over and rebrand the stores to their own banner.

American Eagle Outfitters - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1130 words)
American Eagle sells a full collection of apparel that includes basics such as jeans, cargo pants, and graphic Ts as well as accessories, outerwear, and footwear targeting the 15 to 25-year old demographic primarily under the American Eagle Outfitters® and AE® brand names.
American Eagle Outfitters is often compared to the clothing companies Abercrombie and Fitch and Hollister, due to their very similar styles, marketing techniques, and targeted consumer demographic, as well as the department store private label brands Arizona (JC Penney) and American Rag (Federated Department Stores).
American Eagle Outfitter brands much of their clothing with an embroidered landing eagle, similar to Abercrombie and Fitch's standing moose, Hollister Co.'s seagull, and Aeropostale's butterfly for females and bulldog for males.
