It was a neighborhood store that catered to the needs of local families, where Von der Ahe pioneered “cash and carry,” replacing the “charge and delivery” way of thinking. Its expansion and innovation over the next 90 years was legendary, growing to more than 325 stores and 30,000 employees. This book focuses on the legacy of this great company, its visionary leaders, and its dedicated employees who made it the number one grocery retailer in Southern California.
