Montréal Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1930-1960

This is a list of all known chain grocery addresses in Montréal between 1930 and 1960, 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. You may view the list in the frame below or open it in a new window, which will give you more viewing options and the ability to download it or add it to your own Google Drive.

Street names have been given using Francophone-style ordering and spelling (rue = street, chemin = road, ouest = west, est = east) although I have omitted the comma that is often used between the number and street name and I have used the Anglophone approach to capitalization (so the street type is capitalized). Additionally, I have used the post-amalgamation names for the municipalities. This seems to provide the best functionality in the Google Maps links.
