Casa Ley is a Mexican grocery store chain founded in 1954 by Juan Ley Fong. Most of its stores are located in western Mexico, in the states of Baja California, Sonora, Sinaloa, Nayarit, Jalisco, Colima, Michoacán, Coahuila, Chihuahua, Durango, Guanajuato and Baja California Sur. It is Mexico's largest privately held supermarket chain. It is 49% owned by Albertsons Companies, Inc., which acquired Safeway Inc.'s shares of the chain after its acquisition by Albertsons in 2015.
Originally started as a small village shop in the mining town of Tayoltita to serve the gold and silver miners of the San Luis Mining Company where he offered his goods in exchange for such. In 1948, however, a theft by a close friend and colleague, forced Ley to eventually close his shop in search for a new location. The family moved to Culiacán and in September 1954 the company Casa Ley was born.
