Database/Software Update

Re: New location list: Boise, 1925-1960

There were no listings for Fred Meyer in the directories, hence the omission. It's possible they were listed under "department stores", particularly if there were not grocery departments in the earliest stores. In Portland, they were always listed under "grocers."

Wolf’s also had locations in Detroit. I’m still doing my research there and all the Detroit additions will probably not happen for a bit, but I also found an article that suggests that Wolf was associated with a local wholesaler.
