Passaic and Clifton Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1925-1962

This is a list of all chain grocery locations my research has uncovered in Passaic and Clifton between 1925 and 1962, 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.

  • Clifton went through a major street renumbering program about 1951; the addresses here reflect the current street number as closely as possible (though the old numbers are also preserved in the notes column).
  • I hope to add locations at least through the late 1960s at a later date pending acquisition of additional data.
