This is a list of all known chain grocery addresses in Allentown between 1925 and 2021, 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.
Access and download the location spreadsheet via Google Sheets.
- Locations in Whitehall Township and some other suburbs may not be complete, though I have tried to augment city directpry listings with newspaper ads wherever possible.
- There seems to have been renumbering on some stretches of Lehigh Street and maybe North 7th Street/MacArthur Road that may have switched the even and odd sides of the street.
- American Stores branches for 1945 were not listed but were identified by reverse address lookup and seem to be substantially complete.
- Food Fair
- Penn Fruit
- Two Guys
