My hometown....I got quite a few updates, corrections, etc if you don't mind:

435 Brookside Dr: this is the Brookside Mall shopping centre. Originally a Dominion opened in 1980, it was sold to Sobeys ~1988. Moved to the other end of the mall (an ex-Kmart space) in 1999.

169 Dundonald St: Not listed in the spreadsheet, but Tingley's Save-Easy operated at this location from the early 1960s until Atlantic Superstore opened nearby in 1996. (It might have been listed under "T" in the directory, I seem to recall it was colloquially called Tingley's as much as it was called Save-Easy back in the day. There was an ice cream stand and convenience store at the back of the store that expanded when Save-Easy moved out, and even though it's gone through some name changes since, it's *still* commonly called Tingley's today!)

15 Ferry Ave and 116 Main St are the same store. Originally Tingley's Save-Easy dating back to the late 1970s, it became a SuperValu in 1995 and expanded into a Superstore in 2003.

180 Main St: Lofood was Sobeys' discount brand in the 80s-90s. It was renamed Price Chopper after the Oshawa merger, and then Foodland after they abandoned the Price Chopper banner. Closed in 2014.

340 Prospect St: this is the Fredericton Mall/Uptown Centre Sobeys. The addresses on Prospect were renumbered at some point. (It's after the range of the spreadsheet, but it *did* relocate earlier in 2019 to the other end of the mall, in a spot formerly occupied by Target.)

1381 Regent St/E side of Regent: this is the same store, at Regent Mall. Opened as a Dominion in 1976, sold to Village in 1987, rebranded SuperValu in 1995, closed in 2000. Corbett Centre wasn't developed until the mid-2000s.

1160 Smythe St: one of the stores completely abandoned by Dominion/Mr. Grocer when they collapsed, Save-Easy moved in ~1989 and was there briefly until Superstore opened down the street in 1996. Later a Winners, now a Giant Tiger.

598 Union St: continuously a Save-Easy until it closed in 2007. Now a Giant Tiger.

Highway 7: probably the Lincoln Road, that was the main road to Oromocto before the current highway was built. No idea where along it the Lucky Dollar would have been though.
