    I can help fill in the pieces of what happened at least in Hampton post 2005.

    Farm Fresh folded in 2019 and most stores became Kroger or Harris Teeter. For example, the old super fresh/ farm fresh on fox hill road became a Harris Teeter. The old super fresh/farmer Jack at riverdale stayed abandoned for 20 years til it was finally torn down for a big Kroger.

    Lidl came to Hampton in 2017.
