Allentown Chain Grocery/Retail Locations, 1925-2021

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.

  • 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.

Store tags:

  • A&P
  • American/Acme
  • Food Fair
  • Giant
  • Pathmark
  • Penn Fruit
  • Redner’s
  • Two Guys
