This is a list of all known chain grocery addresses in Hartford between 1925 and 1985 (plus suburban locations from different periods) 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
