Safeway in the United Kingdom was created in 1962 when the American Safeway expanded its business overseas. Therefore, the UK Safeway used the same logos as the US until the company was sold to Argyll Foods in 1987.

In 1987, when Argyll Foods purchased Safeway, they adopted Safeway as the brand name for many of their supermarkets. They also adopted a new logo which was subtly different from the previous American incarnation. They had a smoother version of the "S" and a simplified font which harked back to the logo Safeway had used before 1980.

1994–2000

The "S" logo was ditched in 1994. However, the font was retained from the 1987 logo and a curved underline was added.

The logo was updated for the final time in 2000. The underline was kept but the font was updated, creating a more modern feel.
