SALT LAKE CITY — Funeral services are scheduled here Saturday for Walt Lincoln Macey, founder of Macey’s, who died Monday of natural causes. Macey, 90, had been in poor health for the past couple of years, his family said.
The 10 Macey's stores were sold to Associated Food Stores here in 1999. Flags at the stores were flown at half-mast on Tuesday. Neil Berube, chief operating officer of Associated, called Macey “a pioneer of the grocery industry in Utah.”
