Kansas City (Missouri) Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1925-2020

This is a list of all chain grocery locations my research has uncovered in Kansas City (Missouri) between 1925 and 1992, 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.

  • Includes Kansas City, Blue Springs, Raytown, and North Kansas City.
  • The 1997 data seems to have some major lapses. I’ll do what I can but I may not be able to correct that very much.
