Johnstown Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1925-1960

This is a list of all known chain grocery addresses in Johnstown between 1925 and 1960, 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.


  • Johnstown is best known for the devastation caused by the 1889 flood, but it was a thriving city once again by the 1920s. However, its population peaked with the 1920 census and has declined by 72% over the past 100 years.
  • I hope to add locations for years later than 1960 in the coming months.
