The Safeway store where Ted Bundy worked.

This is the Safeway supermarket store where serial killer Ted Bundy worked in 1968.

The store is situated in Upper Queen Anne in Seattle.

According to a multi-agency report that was compiled by the FBI, Bundy worked at this store between April 12th, 1968 and July 26th, 1968.

At the time, he was a 21-year-old college dropout who had recently been fired from the Olympic Hotel due to suspicions that he was stealing from people's lockers.

During his short stint at Safeway, he stocked supermarket shelves at night. His employment at the supermarket ended in July of 1968 when he suddenly stopped showing up for work.

In July of 1966, an unknown assailant brutally attacked two flight attendants called Lisa Wick and Lonnie Trumbull at a nearby apartment building in Queen Anne. Sadly, Lonnie Trumbull passed away from her injuries.

Several authors have attempted to use Bundy's employment at this store as circumstantial evidence that he may have been involved in the crime. However, this is factually incorrect.

Although this Safeway store is only 1.5 miles away from where the attack took place, the two timelines do not match up. Wick and Trumbull were attacked in July of 1966, which was nearly two full years before Ted Bundy started working here.

According to local newspapers, there are plans to build a large multi-use building on the site. The bottom floor will contain a Safeway store. The six stories above it will consist of residential units.
