I lean toward Kroger, but I'm not sure. Any ideas on this one?

Food Fair (the ancestor to Famer Jack, used pylons). National did, too, but with brick, not tile; this looks very un-National-like. Kroger used fieldstone to trim some of its late 50s/early 60s stores, but this one looks older and I don't recall them using tile.

Another possibility: Wrigley. they probably were the dominant chain when this was built. I don't know if they used pylons in Detroit, their Cleveland stores didn't, but all were in shopping centers and many predated Wrigley ownership.
