Peoria Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1925-2021

This is a list of all chain grocery locations my research has uncovered in Peoria between 1925 and 2021, compiled from city directories, telephone books, and other sources. There may be some omissions due to incomplete or missing data, etc. and I welcome suggestions and corrections. Please read about my methodology for more information about what I do and do not include.

  • Approximately 75% of Peoria’s streets were renumbered in 1955-56. I have cross-checked pre-1955 addresses as closely as possible to match them to their current numbers, but there may be a few stragglers that are slightly “off.”
  • Ben Schwartz and Buehler’s stores post-1985 may not be 100% complete; their city directory listings during these years were inconsistent.
