This is a list of all known chain grocery addresses in Hartford’s eastern suburbs between 1930 and 1977 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.
- I have found that the Google Maps links do not work well due to the street names that repeat in so many suburbs; even addresses that are correct and current sometimes display incorrectly. Main Street and Farmington Avenue are particularly problematic. I cannot fix this. I am sorry.
- Two separate chains bearing the “Economy” name operated in Hartford; one became First National and the other became Stop & Shop.
- First National/Finast
- Grand Union
- Stop & Shop
