United Supermarkets is a North American supermarket grocery store chain. With headquarters in Lubbock, Texas, its roots go back to 1916, when H.D. Snell opened his first United Cash Store in Sayre, Oklahoma. Today, his legacy has grown to include 66 stores in 30 Texas cities and over 10,000 workers. United Supermarkets has stores primarily located in North Texas, West Texas and the Texas Panhandle. The five regions for store locations are: the Lubbock region has 18 stores, the Amarillo region has 13 stores, the Wichita Falls region has eight stores, the Abilene region has five stores, and the Dallas region has seven stores. While it shares the same name as United Supermarkets based in Oklahoma, it technically does business as United Supermarkets, L.L.C. to differentiate from the Oklahoma chain, as they are separate grocery entities. Today, United Supermarkets is run by the Albertsons chain, and operates as a division of Albertsons.
