Trenton Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1925-2005

This is a list of all known chain grocery addresses in Trenton between 1925 and 2005, compiled 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:

  • The city directory listings do not include addresses in Lawrence Township or Hamilton Township. Ewing Township is included. This is why, for example, the Brunswick Circle Penn Fruit is missing. As far as I can tell, there were never city directories published for these missing areas, so this is not something that can be easily rectified.
  • Acme/American Stores listings seem inconsistent and some may or may not be 100% accurate for some years.
  • City directories were only published through 1971. Listings after this are taken from telephone directories, which tend to be less accurate.

Store tags:

  • A&P
  • Acme/American
  • Almar
  • Food Fair
  • Pathmark
  • Super Fresh
