Re: Food Fair/ Pantry Pride in Kingston,NY?

I believe the Mohawk Mall (Niskayuna,NY) was their most northern reach in NY. In that area, Food Fair had stores in Schenectady, Menands, Latham, Troy, and Albany. I think I read somewhere that Food Fair tried to build in Utica,NY, but was shot down (although a JM Fields did open there). As far as d...

Re: Great American

I believe Victory Markets also supplied a few independent franchisees under the Food King name, but the only one I am aware of is the store still operating in Waterville, NY. Can anyone verify this for me? Interesting!! I have heard of Food King before, but not Victory Markets supplying them. I fou...

Re: Great American

Ilion,NY was indeed a former Loblaws, as was Whitesboro,NY and Little Falls,NY. If we add the Chicago Markets(NY) in 1986 and the Genetti's Supermarkets(PA) in 1969, this adds a lot of stores... 0ne on Pultney Street which was a former Loblaws and now a Salvation Army Thrift Store. That brings up so...

Re: Barker's Department Stores

I'm adding Wallingford,CT to the list. But I also have a question about this location. I have links that say there was a store in Wallingford,CT, so my question is this...Before Barkers took over the Grants in Meriden Mall in 1975, was this where Barkers was (became a Zayres??)?? Location would be O...

Re: Barker's Department Stores

This is the post I originally read on amesfanclub: "I believe that a Barkers in Clifton Park later beacame a Joy's Department store in the 80's sometime". Based on that, the store location is at the corner of Route 146 & 146A, which is about 2 miles west of the intersection of Routes 9&146 (this is...
