About Vons

Vons is a popular supermarket chain located in Southern California and Southern Nevada. The first Vons was founded in downtown Los Angeles in 1906 by Charles Von der Ahe. This original 20-foot-wide grocery store began with the intention of meeting the needs of the local families. By 1928, this small grocery store had grown to a large chain of 87 stores. By the 1970's, Vons was considered the top grocery store in Southern California.

Today, Vons operates under Albertsons Companies with its headquarters in Fullerton, California. It has 190 supermarket locations in California and nine in Nevada. Vons is known for its high-quality selection of produce, meat, and baked goods. It also offers multiple in-house brands ranging from organic selections to budget-friendly products.
