Meet Fred Meyer

One of my family’s stories involves a very young Adam – but considering that I do not remember the story, I would presume it happened in the 1970s, roughly speaking.

We’d taken a family trip to Oregon – which is where my maternal grandmother lived. My maternal grandfather died before I was born.

I have no idea where we went on that trip, but evidently we drove a lot of places, seeing Fred Meyer everywhere.

For those of you unfamiliar with Fred Meyer, it’s a chain of grocery stores that pretty well blankets Oregon and other parts of the Pacific Northwest. Back then it was independent, today it’s part of the Kroger family.

At some point we pulled into Salem and looked at the state capital building.

Atop the building is a golden man – quite striking.

One of my siblings asked the question, “Who is on top of the state capital?”

I knew the answer: Fred Meyer.
