Peterborough Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1925-2010

This is a list of all chain grocery locations my research has uncovered in Peterborough between 1925 and 2010, 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.

  • Haboco, which first appears in 1930, is the new name for the H.J. Boyle chain.
  • There were apparently two different Braund chains.
  • City directories starting in 1970 do not include a full classified directory so identifying chain stores is tricky. The classifications resume in 2000. I have made these years as complete as I can.
