Peoria Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1925-2021

This is a list of all known chain grocery addresses in Peoria 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.

Access and download the location spreadsheet via Google Sheets.

Notes:

  • 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.
