Fort Lauderdale Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1936-1981

This is a list of all chain grocery locations my research has uncovered in Fort Lauderdale between 1936 and 1981, 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.

  • All the municipalities in this list share continuous street numbering, so the addresses are sorted by street rather than town.
  • Several streets (e.g 40th Avenue/State Road 7) are apparently also sometimes referred to by avenue numbers. I have used the most consistent addresses that seem to work best with Google Maps.
