The images at top of page overlap on narrower screens. Needs fixing.


Am I alone in thinking of a store smaller than a supermarket when I hear the word grocery. I do not believe the two to be equivalent? The grocery is more of the corner store in my mind. Brooklyn Nellie (Nricardo) 02:58, May 18, 2004 (UTC)

Definatly. A grocery only sells fruit and vegetables and other similar items. i have changed the page accordingly, and also changed a few incorrect spellings. Grunners 23:20, 20 May 2004 (UTC)

Added a bit more history, including Piggly Wiggly and Clarence Saunders, and about Michael Cullen. Earlier stores were grocers - King Kullen is generally recognised as the first supermarket. We probably need to show definitions at some point. Coriolis
