Albertsons - Grocery chain that recently merged with Safeway.
Good & Plenty - Licorice candy brand.

The first Pepsi-Cola was created by Caleb D. Bradham (1866–1934), a pharmacist in New Bern, North Carolina. Hoping to duplicate the recent success of Coca-Cola, Bradham named his sweet cola-flavoured carbonated beverage Pepsi-Cola in 1898. The drink proved so popular that in 1902 Bradham incorporated the Pepsi-Cola Company.
GOOD & PLENTY
Good & Plenty was first produced by the Quaker City Chocolate & Confectionery Company of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1893 and is believed to be the oldest branded candy in the United States.
July 21, 1939
Founder Joe Albertson opens the first Albertsons at 16th and State streets in Boise. For just over 75 cents, customers can purchase three pounds of tomatoes, a pound of coffee and a one-pound roast. An in-store ice cream shop serves double-dipped, handmade ice cream cones dubbed “Big Joe’s” for a nickel.
TOYS R US
Founded in April 1948, with its headquarters located in Wayne, New Jersey, in the New York metropolitan area. Founded by Charles Lazarus in its modern iteration in June 1957, Toys "R" Us traced its origins to Lazarus's children's furniture store, which he started in 1948.
