    You never mentioned INKS ( think that changed to Van’s), Pantry (not Handy Pantry) Thriftway Market, Mar Val market (in Rio Linda, I guess that’s not Sacramento), Rainbow Market (North Sacramento), Arcade Market (North Sacramento)

      I only study chains, so if these were individual/independent stores, I wouldn’t have included them.
