1980's Supermarket Explosion.

I seem to remember hearing a news report about such an incident in Ohio in the mid-80's.

Think it might of been Cleveland and I typed in up and couldn't find anything.

The only major mid-1980s supermarket explosion anywhere near Ohio that I could find in newspapers.com involved a Foodland in South Charleston, West Virginia, on October 17, 1983.

This is from the Akron Beacon Journal on October 18, 1983 (newspapers.com doesn't have the Cleveland Plain Dealer):
