Re: Claber's in Pittsburgh

Doing some homework on this topic, I found that Claber's Discount Department Stores (Clabers Distributing Company of Pittsburgh) had 7 stores. They were bought by Fisher Foods, Inc in January 1969.

Thruway Shopping Center Walden, NY

Been around since 1955. Hannaford was trying to build here in 2011. There was a lawsuit by Foodtown, but I was told today that it will be a Hannaford after all.

It was a 30,000 square foot store and was followed by 5 Long Island store grand openings in the same week. This Hills became...

Re: Grand Union

I'm trying to find out a little more about Grand Union other than "began in the late 1800's". Anyone know of a timeline? I'm trying to find out what their geographic reach was before the 1960's; especially in the period from 1900 to 1930. Were they national like A&P? Thanks. I believe this topic sh...

It should be known that in early June 1995, Kmart announced another round of closings. Again, 72 was the magic number, with all stores on that list closed by January 1996, with Texas and California being the biggest hits. I have that list as well if needed.
