Modesto

Modesto is known for being the place where much of the location filming for “American Graffiti” was done. It is also the hometown of Save-Mart Supermarkets and has been served by many large chains (Safeway, Lucky, Purity, Alpha Beta, Piggly Wiggly) as well as smaller ones (New Deal, Justesen’s) and independents. Nearby Turlock also has an interesting retail history.
