Santa Cruz County Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1930-1980

This is a list of all chain grocery locations my research has uncovered in Santa Cruz County between 1925 and 1980, compiled from city directories, telephone books, and other sources. There may be some omissions due to incomplete or missing data, etc. and I welcome suggestions and corrections. Please read about my methodology for more information about what I do and do not include.
