Interesting about Fred Meyer....
Born Fritz Grubmeyer in Germany, noted retailer Fred G. Meyer (1886-1978) left his his childhood home in Brooklyn, New York, as a young man and headed out west, first to Alaska, then Seattle and eventually Portland, Oregon.
In the decades of the 20s and the 30s, Meyer's business grew from one downtown Portland store to eight in the metropolitan area. He opened one of the first self-service drugstores in the world at a time when people usually had to buy toiletries and pharmaceutical products directly from a pharmacist. He also predicted the rise of the automobile and made sure that all his outlying stores had ample parking, including one with a rooftop lot.
The Fred Meyer chain featured in-house brands of inexpensive, pre-packaged goods under the brand name My-Te-Fine. This brand name would become the signature motto of the company.Meyer is perhaps best known for pioneering the concept of one-stop shopping. In addition to the grocery sections, his stores included many departments with everything a shopper might need, eliminating the need for multiple trips to several locations.
