Notes:

  • The Red & White stores, particularly in 1949, may be incomplete as they were not always listed as such in the city directory. This may also be true of Arrowhead stores.
  • Great Bear and B-Kwik were forerunners of the Tops Markets chain, as was the store run by Ferranti (and later Armand) Castellani (listed 1925-1942) and the Belmart store (listed 1960) on Hyde Park Boulevard–a partnership between Castellani and Bells Markets.
