Burtrum Motors was all over North Main in the 60’s, it seems.
Safeway opened at this location on February 1, 1956. Mark Peterson was the manager, he would eventually buy Moonwink Grocery at 9th and NW J.
A month and a half later, they would be robbed at gunpoint. It wouldn’t be the last time.
Safeway was a familiar site on North Main, along with Farrier’s on the other side of the road. Many a Boomer kid has memories of one or both places.
