1980's Supermarket Explosion.

I seem to remember hearing a news report about such an incident in Ohio in the mid-80's.


Think it might of been Cleveland and I typed in up and couldn't find anything.

Opened April 5, 1956. This store has the door on the far right. This drawing looks like the Libertyville Jewel from 1955. There was another Jewel at 5005 Oakton that opened on October 20, 1949. Image
What happened to the picture?

Kroger/Chicago

I know or at least I'm pretty sure they pulled out of Chicago in 1971 but when did they enter the Chicago market?


Can't find anything on their website.

With Dominick's in Chicago officially giving notice to employees that they intend to close all stores by December 28th Chicago Tribune posted an interesting photo pictorial of the chain through the years. http://galleries.apps.chicagotribune.com/chi-131010-dominicks-through-the-years-pictures/ The ...

Re: Dominick's ?

Just thought of another question.

I remember most of the stores had orange flags above each letter that spelled Dominick's.


This was when they had the old orange cursive logo?

What was the purpose of that?

Jewel Plaza Del Lago Wilmette Il.

I was in there some years back and it's an older store that has less that 10 check out counters and the interior is original.

There's possible misake on the year since Dominick's was established in 1925 which woild of made it 48 years instead of 46 unless she was mistaken on the number.

Nope, it was definately a Kohl's according to Chicago Tribune archives. Kohl's did have locations in Chicago. According to a 1975 advertisement.
