Owen Sound Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1930-2019

This is a list of all chain grocery locations my research has uncovered in Owen Sound between 1930 and 2019, compiled from city directories, telephone books, and other sources. 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.
