Carrs - Since 1950
Carrs was founded by Larry Carr in 1950 in Anchorage, Alaska. The retailer merged with J.B. Gottstein & Company in 1972, which had been founded in 1915 to supply groceries and household items to a relatively isolated Alaskan population. The pair expanded into 24 locations across the state until over half the entire population of Alaska lived within a few miles of a retailer store location. They were the first supermarket in the state to open a 24-hour pharmacy, a deli, a bakery and under one hour photo processing centers. They were also the first grocery store in Alaska to scan products at the checkout line. The company operates Alaska's only distribution center intended for food production.
