This is a list of all known chain grocery addresses in Hamilton between 1925 and 2022, 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.
- I have accessed new data and have filled in most of the “holes” from the Vernon Directories between 1970 and 2001. This list should be pretty complete.
- Barn stores were listed under several names, which are included in the notes.
- The Longo’s store on Concession Street seems unrelated to the chain.
- A&P/Food Basics
- The Barn
- Carroll’s/Grand Union
- Dominion/Mr Grocer
- Food City/IGA/Price Chopper
- Loblaws/Fortinos/No Frills
- Steinberg/Miracle (Food) Mart/Ultra
