Under construction/updates in progress (September 2018)
This is a list of all known chain grocery addresses in Columbus between 1930 and 1975, 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.
- Since the street numbering system generally crosses seamlessly from Columbus into the suburbs, I have not sorted the individual municipalities into separate groups.
- City directories prior to 1930 do not list Kroger locations, so I have opted to start in 1930 since I prefer not to have incomplete years, particularly when the top chain is the missing one.

- Big Bear
- Cub Foods
- Food World
