Peterborough Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1925-2010

This is a list of all known chain grocery addresses in Peterborough between 1925 and 2010, complied from city directories, telephone books, and other sources. It is generated through a live Google Spreadsheet so it reflects the latest information I have.

  • Haboco, which first appears in 1930, is the new name for the H.J. Boyle chain.
  • There were apparently two different Braund chains.
  • City directories starting in 1970 do not include a full classified directory so identifying chain stores is tricky. The classifications resume in 2000. I have made these years as complete as I can.
