Schenectady Area Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1925-2000

This is a list of all known chain grocery addresses in Schenectady, Scotia, Rotterdam, and Niskayuna between 1925 and 2000, complied from city directories, telephone books, and other sources. This list is INCOMPLETE as there are numerous missing data sources from this area, particularly from the 1950s on. Many thanks are due to the helpful librarians of the Schenectady County Public Library. It is generated through a live Google Spreadsheet so it reflects the latest information I have.
