Raley’s marks 80th year.


Raley’s celebrating its 80-year this week. The company said Thomas P. Raley opened his first store in Placerville, Calif., on Feb. 16, 1935, which he advertised as “the nation’s first drive-in market” because it offered a parking lot.

According to Michael Teel, president and CEO — and grandson of the founder — “My family and I are proud of how the company has grown over the last eight decades and proud that we continue to provide high-quality, fresh and local products and exceptional customer service — just like my grandfather set out to do.”

The company, based in West Sacramento, Calif., operates 128 stores in Northern California and Northern Nevada under four banners: Raley’s, Bel Air Markets, Nob Hill Foods and Food Source.
