Elizabeth Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1925-1967

This is a list of all chain grocery locations my research has uncovered in XXXX between 1925 and 1697, 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.

  • Linden locations from 1925 are not avilable.
  • Presumably the Safeway locations from 1963 were operating as Safeway First National.
  • A spreadsheet shared by Market Report Media indicates that there were very few changes by 1969, the last year when city directories were published for Elizabeth.
