This is a list of all known chain grocery addresses in and around Rochester NY between 1925 and 2005, compiled from city directories, telephone books, and other sources. It is generated through a live Google Spreadsheet so it reflects the latest information I have.
- Hart’s stores began opening supermarkets under the Star Super Markets name in 1940. The first was at 685 South Avenue (in a former A&P). The two chains operated simultaneously until the late 1960s.
- Cities listed in the spreadsheet reflect the mailing address for Google Maps integration, so locations in Greece and Gates, for example, display as “Rochester.”
- I have tried to use the directional conventions currently in use, which is difficult in Rochester, so “North Clinton Avenue” but “Winton Road North.”
- Acme/Super Saver
- Red & White
- Super Duper
