Greensboro Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1910-2015

This is a list of all chain grocery locations my research has uncovered in Greensboro between 1910 and 2015, compiled from city directories, telephone books, and other sources. Although some suburban locations may be included, it is not meant to cover all suburban stores in the area. 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.

    I would like to know when the A&P that became Fleet-Plummer opened and closed.
    Thank you for providing all of this information.
