Re: Food Fair in Atlanta?

I also ran across another article that suggested Food Fair's entry into Atlanta came with the purchase of a small chain with stores in Marietta and (I think) Dalton, both of which are outside my study area since they were not fully covered in the Atlanta Suburban city directories.

Re: Bookstores

I remember a store called "Book and Record" in the late 70's to early 80's. They had a store in New Paltz, NY, in the same plaza that had a Barkers Department Store and a Great American Food Store.
