The Tampa Bay area is a fascinating area for the study of chain supermarkets as well as shopping centers. Historically an innovative and competitive market, the area has been fertile territory for such Florida-based chains as Publix, Winn-Dixie, and Kash n’ Karry (now Sweetbay Supermarkets). Numerous national chains, including Kroger, Grand Union, and American Stores, have found it less hospitable, although A&P, Food Fair/Pantry Pride and Alberstons had somewhat better luck.
