This is a list of all known chain grocery addresses in what is now Toronto between 1915 and 2023, compiled from city directories, telephone books, and other sources. It is generated through a live Google Spreadsheet so it reflects the latest and most complete information I have. These are taken from Toronto city directory listings.
- Entries from 1970-1986 on may have some omissions as the Toronto city directories during these years did not include a full grocery classification.
- Entries from 2006-2007 are taken from telephone directories, newspaper archives, and by extrapolation and may also have some omissions.
