Food 4 Less - History
Food 4 Less was founded in 1977, but the history of the store can be traced back to the 1930s. Lou Falley was the founder of Falley's and Food 4 Less stores. The stores were discount grocery stores in a warehouse format where customers could serve themselves. Store locations were in Kansas and Missouri and then later franchised out to different regions. The stores were a big success in Southern California in 1977-80s and eventually merged with Ralphs, and then acquired by Kroger in 1997. Today, stores are located in Southern California, Nevada, Illinois, and Indiana, and they contribute to Kroger's 90 billion dollar a year business.
