Jons

Yes many of them were Vons. When the 1st store was opened they chose this name to save money on the signage. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the founders name is John Berberian.

Market Basket

Unless the stores were so much the same I think this was in Anaheim at Ball Rd. and State College which much of the building is intact and I believe is an independent Fiesta Mexicana or Fiesta Foods.

Superior Super Warehouse @ 103rd & Avalon

Yes this loaction was originally a Safeway, a Ralphs, then an independent which I can't remember. It is now Superior #1 (a reuse of #1 after Superior in Covina originally #1 the first time around closed). A second building was built on the site when Ralphs was there and was Thrifty Drug which failed...

Crawfords Market

The Crawfords that was at 5 points in El Monte was purchsed several years ago by Payless Foods and turned into a latino store called MI PUEBLO. I have not been by there in about 2 years but I understand they remodeled the store finally.

Hacienda N of 60 fwy

There was some kind of variety store, the same chain, there and in Chino, they both had a garden center on the side, maybe not a drug store, but they carried a variety similar to a TG&Y but larger. A large makeup counter in the front and had a large selection of health & beauty.
