Re: Stores in London, Ontario

... 1961, so I'm piecing together a location spreadsheet. So far it's been an illuminating experience. London had four major players in 1961 (A&P, Dominion, Loblaw's, and Steinberg's), plus a large smattering of independents. Steinberg abruptly exited in the early '70s after their store base shrunk ...

Re: Safeway Locations in Toronto

... locations. This was probably Safeway's peak in Ontario. They sold their stores to the Oshawa Group following an unsuccessful attempt to purchase Dominion in 1984. Since Sobeys ultimately purchased the Oshawa Group stores, they owned lots of former Safeway locations in Ontario long before they ...

Re: 5915 Yonge, North York ON

The small Metro on Yonge was formerly Dominion, but was originally an A&P. At least as recently as a few years back, I believe it still had an A&P parking sign in the back lot. I may have a picture somewhere. I'll look and add it if ...

Re: Dominion Square - Culpeper, VA

I concure with the rest of the posters that it was 100% Indeed an late 80s-original Superfresh as this was the exact building style that A&P used for just about every new store during that prosperous period for the company. examples can be also seen in Bristol PA, A Baptist Church in North Phila...

Re: Dominion Square - Culpeper, VA

Good to know, thanks for your help. I doubt it will look like this for much longer since its the last area of this center to receive any kind of update. The new tenant will probably do away with the whole facade and put up some foam stucco monstrosity since it'll probably turn into some sort of depa...

Re: Dominion Square - Culpeper, VA

I'm almost certain it's an A&P variant that probably last operated as a SuperFresh (and maybe opened as one). I would agree with SuperFresh, and possibly even Sav-A-Center later in life... both used kelly green as their primary colors, both were A&P stores, and the facade is very characteri...
