Waterloo Region Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1925-1995

This is a list of all known chain grocery addresses in the Waterloo Region of Ontario from 1924-1995 (Kitchener/Waterloo) and 1922-1980 (Cambridge), 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.

Access and download the location spreadsheet via Google Sheets.

Notes:

  • Loblaws seems to have purchased Zehrs at some point in the late 1960s or early 1970s. I’ll narrow this down as soon as I can.
  • The entries from 1970 on may miss some chains due to the organization of the Vernon city directories from that point on. I have made the listings as complete as I can.

Store tags:

  • A&P
