Re: Supermarket locations of Lindsay, Ontario

... I was able to flesh out Lindsay with information from 1975-89 and 1999. Linky. The one big surprise I discovered was that 131 Kent St W (the ex-Dominion pictured upthread) actually survived in operation long enough to be converted to Mr. Grocer in the 1980s. 42 Russell St W opened between 1989 ...

Re: Late '50s Dominions with identical architecture

... Broadview Avenue in Toronto, now a Loblaws, might have been a variant. The side has been painted, but the rear looks familiar. This one opened as Dominion in the late 1950s. It's one of my favorite Toronto stores. Google Street View: https://goo.gl/maps/frMjybFVur4CN2TR8 I think this store may ...

Late '50s Dominions with identical architecture

This is 1154 Hamilton Rd., London, ON. This store operated as a Dominion supermarket from the late 1950s to the early 1980s, likely closing either at the time of the 1985 A&P sale or in the wave of "Mr. Grocer" spin-offs that happened a couple ...

The mysteries of Eaton Groceteria in Canada

... Woodstock, and Sault Ste. Marie, Eaton Groceteria stores had become established by 1930...more or less in tandem with the other Canadian chains (Dominion, Loblaw, and A&P). But within a decade, they were gone. In London, they had disappeared by 1935; in the smaller cities of St. Thomas and ...

St. Thomas, ON chain grocery/supermarket history, 1925-2019

... other interesting finds, notes, and take-aways: * Chain development in St. Thomas predictably followed the progression in other nearby cities: Dominion entered by 1925, A&P and Loblaws followed by 1930, and all of them consolidated multiple neighbourhood stores into a single city supermarket ...

Re: Woodstock, ON chain grocery/supermarket history, 1926-2019

Like any other good city, Woodstock has its share of interesting stores and artifacts. The best of these was this terrific 1960s Dominion at 236 Springbank, now housing a dollar store: woodstockdominion.jpg The store in question seems to have had a surprisingly brief operational existence, ...

Re: Brampton, ON supermarket history

... 21 W Nelson? Or could it have been built as something else entirely? Yes, No Frills stores are usually ex-Loblaws or ex-Zehrs...but a few are ex-Dominion via Mr. Grocer, ex-Loeb via Provigo, or ex-something else via one-off permutations.

Re: Brampton, ON supermarket history

I'm also going to hazard a guess that Steinberg's/Miracle was at Brampton Mall (160 Main St S, now Metro) and Dominion was somewhere at Shoppers World (499 Main St S).

Re: Brampton, ON supermarket history

It looks like 233 Queen St E and 2 Kennedy Rd S (Dominion) are actually the same location.

Re: Brampton, ON supermarket history

... (Although this is a "every tenant in the mall has the same address" situation, so I don't know if this is the exact same store as the Dominion of 1975.) And 400 Queen W and Bramalea City Centre are still home to Fresh Co.

Re: Stores in London, Ontario

... a few locations belonging to Loeb , the Ontario grocery chain that I always forget about. Loeb reoccupied a couple of the Miracle Food Mart and Dominion stores that A&P divested in the '80s...which makes it all the more ironic that Loeb got swallowed up by Metro alongside A&P. Loeb also ...
