Why is King Soopers called King Soopers?
AP On Tuesday, December 6, 2005, a worker who has not been identified places grapes on a shelf in a King Soopers shop located in southeast Denver. There was once a man named King who owned the grocery shop that is now known as King Soopers. The “Soopers” element of the name is a little more difficult to find.
- Journalist Matt Masich did some investigation into the matter for the publication Colorado Life Magazine, and he discussed his findings on the podcast Colorado Matters.
- In 1947, Lloyd King established a grocery store company that would later become Kroger and was headquartered in Arvada, Colorado.
- The name “King” comes from the fact that King intended to name his business not only after himself but also after his sons Lew and Larry.
The peculiar origin of the singular spelling of “Soopers” may be traced back to the Archie comic book series. “Larry was an ardent reader of Archie comics, which were at their height of popularity right about this time,” Masich said. “This was right in the post-war era, smack in the middle of the moment when the contemporary American adolescent was being developed.” According to what Larry related to his father, a character would yell out “Sooper!” whenever something extremely thrilling was happened.
Masich is still looking for an Archie comic that has the word “Sooper,” and as part of his investigation, he contacted a Calgary University professor who specializes in the comic book series. More than simply his moniker set the merchant apart from his competitors. At the site at 13th Avenue and Krameria Street that is still standing (in a renovated version) today, King Soopers was the first supermarket to feature an in-store pharmacy.
It was also one of the first grocery shops to implement the concept of a self-serve meat counter, making it a pioneer in the industry.
