Pavilions is a grocery store banner used by Vons, a supermarket division of Safeway Inc. in Southern California. Although similar to Vons stores, Pavilions markets are more upscale and feature a larger selection of organic food, wine, and other speciality foods.

A location in Anaheim Hills

Introduced by Vons in 1985,[1] they were the showpiece of their new image. The stores also tend to be larger than the typical Vons store, because many of them contain full-service pharmacies, expanded service areas and specialty offerings as a standard feature.[2]

The first location was opened in Garden Grove[3] in October 1985[1] in a 55,000-square-foot former Zody's discount department store building. The new store included a seafood shop that sold live fish, a full-service butcher shop, bakery, tortilla shop, small pizza parlor, ice cream shop, delicatessen, florist, and pharmacy.
