These are the latest blog updates. Click on the title to read the full article.
So I’m experimenting with adding a web journal to the site. I don’t use the term “blog” because it sounds like something you might hack up on a very hungover Sunday morning.
In theory, I’ll use this space for links to interesting sites and news articles I’ve found, pictures of stores I need help identifying, pointers to new stuff on the site, and general notes, comments, and thoughts.
More to come…
Established in 1999, Groceteria.com is a site about the history of American and Canadian chain supermarkets, from the 1920s through the turn of the century and beyond. This is not a site about current supermarket issues and operations, and it is not connected with nor owned by any supermarket chain. Here’s what you will find:
- About the site: Learn more about the history of supermarkets, your humble host, and my methodology, not to mention sources and links, and frequent questions.
- Places: Detailed histories of the geography and architecture of chain grocery retailers in the U.S. and Canada since the 1920s. This is the most intensively researched part of the site.
- Chains: Capsule histories of some North American supermarket chains, including photo galleries.
- The message board: A place to discuss the history of supermarkets and other retailers.
