Re: Chatham supermarkets in Michigan?

#12 - 28804 Gratiot & 12 Mile Rd. - Roseville Evidently demolished and replaced by a new shopping center. Actually the Chatham's store was part of the shopping center. It was at the far end of the complex (farthest from Gratiot Avenue). I am sure extensive remodeling occurred since its closure, but...

Re: Chatham supermarkets in Michigan?

I grew up in Roseville, MI, which is on the east side of Detroit. Chatham's was the main grocery store that my mom shopped at - the one at 12 Mile Rd. and Gratiot. I have no idea when that location closed or who moved in afterwards, but today that space is occupied by Walmart. Doing a quick Google s...

Re: HOME (store)

Since I live very close to this mall, it holds a special place in my heart. After moving to the area from out of town, it was the first mall that I took my kids to back in 1994, but by then many of the original stores had already left. I tried to find online any sort of references to a "Home" store ...

Re: Former Boston Market locations in your area

The one in Fairfield, OH is now a rather successful Chinese buffet. I think they added an addition on to the left side of the building, but it definitely used to be a Boston Market. https://www.google.com/maps?q=725+Nilles+Rd,+Fairfield,+OH&hl=en&ll=39.337477,-84.556169&spn=0.006315,0.013937&sll=39....

Re: Inside bigg's

I used to shop at the Forest Fair location back in the 90's. The only things I can recall is that the FF location had an Izzy's Deli Counter at the back of the store and I believe they had a bank at the front of the store (not sure what bank). Other than those two, I don't think they had any other "...

Re: Milgram/SaveMart

I found this on a website (http://www.umkc.edu/whmckc/Collections/IKC0325.HTM); Milgram Food Stores, Inc. began in 1913 with one store owned by Nat Milgram. After fifteen years under his ownership and the management of three brothers and five brothers-in-law, Kroger Company purchased Milgram’s thirt...

Red Barn

Does anybody remember the Red Barn restaurant chain? I wonder how many of the original buildings still exist? Here is one that is still being used as an Arby's: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=42.530435,-82.914813&spn=0,359.996513&t=h&z=19&lci=com.panoramio.all&layer=c&cbll=42.530355,-82.914868&p...

Re: Sambo's Restaurant Locations in California

I am sorry, I just realized after looking this up that you were looking for locations in California, but you brought back some memories for me as I used to eat at Sambos while growing up in Michigan. Here is a former Sambos, located in Roseville, MI (suburb of Detroit): http://maps.google.com/?ie=UT...
