Food Fair expands west

Post by 11ball » 05 Apr 2010 11:45

The giant east coast grocery chain "Food Fair" itching to break into the west coast announces they are acquiring the local southern California chain "Fox Market". Fox probably expanded too fast and was in financial straits by early 1961. Food Fair kept the Fox name for a couple of years in their ads. By at least 1963, the ads started to feature both names until Fox was dropped totally.
