From 1988 to 2006, it was owned by British retailer Marks & Spencer.
The upscale market branded private label products under the Kings Own brand name.
During the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the market drew national attention for its policy on mask-wearing: when a customer entered the store without wearing a mask, they were given a mask and the CEO's phone number.
On August 23, 2020, Kings filed for bankruptcy and on October 14, 2020, it was announced that Albertsons submitted a winning $96M bid for the company.
