NEW: Hamilton ON, 1925-2018

This one's fairly big but comes with a couple of caveats as noted on the page:

Re: New article: Krogering in Greensboro

Thanks. I don't think there were ever any SupeRx stores in Greensboro, though I know there were a couple in Winston-Salem. 3357 Battleground is an odd case in a center with an odd history. It seems a little bigger than the standard 1985 greenhouse. Kroger may have done some remodeling/expanding over...

Re: Grand Rapids, Michigan chain grocery/supermarket locations

No leads. You may check with the Grand Rapids Public Library. They may have a clipping file or something similar.

Re: Fresno-Grocery Stores-Early & Mid-20th Century

Excellent. If anyone has access to Newspapers.com, it includes both papers through 1975. This could be a great roadmap. Thanks!

Re: New article: Krogering in Greensboro

To Kroger's credit, they have largely left Harris Teeter alone; their private label and decor remain separate and about the only change is that my Kroger Plus card now works at Harris Teeter. Even after five years, there has basically been no hint of "Krogerizing." And now that you mention it, I see...

NEW: Oshawa ON, 1926-2018

Home of the Oshawa Group, which (among other things) purchased Ontario's Safeway stores and later was acquired by Sobeys. More recently, Oshawa has been another victim of cutbacks at General Motors.

Re: NEW: Dayton OH, 1925-2015

I think that's as good an explanation as any. It's also interesting to see how Dayton chains gave Kroger more of a run for its money than in many other parts of Ohio.

Re: Fredericksburg, Virginia

The most obvious 40s store is the "Soviet Safeway" at 17th & Corcoran, which recently had an update. You see, I had always assumed that was an older store too, but it apparently just dates from the late 1960s. Per my research, until sometime between 1965 and 1970, Safeway was in a former Acme acros...

Re: Fredericksburg, Virginia

At least in DC proper, some 40s stores made it into the 80s. Actually, there's still one operating in DC at 4865 MacArthur Blvd in the Foxhall/Palisades area, though it has been expanded a bit. I think it's probably one of the oldest stores in the chain still operating under the Safeway name. But t...
