This is a list of all known chain grocery addresses in Topeka between 1926 and 1963, 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.
- Topeka is one of those interesting areas where A&P, Kroger, and Safeway all operated simultaneously, if only for about fifteen years or so.
- The Grand Union chain that operated in Topeka is almost certainly not the same one that served the northeastern USA.
- I am not 100% certain how much of a connection there was between the assorted Roose chains.
- Kroger abandoned the market in the early 1950s but returned with its purchase of Dillon’s in 1983.
