Thriftway was also the name for a separate chain of 21 grocery stores in the Cincinnati area, owned by Winn-Dixie.  The chain closed its doors in 2004.

One former location in Milford, Ohio.

Nice labelscar, eh?

I found some large metal carts from the chain at a Goodwill nine years ago. Long gone now, sadly.

This location in Newport, KY was a Thriftway sometime in the early '80s, not sure when it closed.

The former location behind Beechmont Mall outside of Cincinnati. It was demolished around 2005 or 2006.

Those stores looked nice...The one in Milford, Ohio is a swing set outlet? Nice...

Not sure about "nice" - I have very limited memories of the Anderson Twp. location, but the interior seemed dark and dated-looking just like the exterior. Not sure what the east-coast equivalent would be of a grocery store chain that is clearly a relic of the past but which has somehow held on through the years.

And yes, the Milford location is a swing set outlet. I should have seen what was left of the interior...maybe I will head back there sometime soon.

What I meant by nice was the design... the Mansard roof...

I remember Mott's (a franchise of Shop-Rite) had a unique design - the roof was curved. Unless in the last 10 years, they remodeled it, Wethersfield still had the swept roof. The old Mott's on Middle Turnpike in Manchester was remodeled but you can still see he contour of it. (Manchester's now a State building).

First National Stores had a slanted roof lines and tiles on the front.

You mean like this one (borrowed from the ShopRite forum by Webcookie in 2006)?

That was a fairly common design for ShopRite at the time.

Try this link below (it's really long but it works - you may have to highlight it, hit copy then paste into the address bar) - Should bring up a view of the Wethersfield store as a Price Rite - I see what you mean by the sloped roof - that is unusual.  Move left or right and you can get most of the store into view around the trees.

Another Winn-Dixie-owned Thriftway store. This was one of a few that were acquired by Kroger after the Thriftway chain went under - this one finally closed for good sometime in 2010.

It appears the Thriftway/Shop 'N Bag branding in the Philadelphia area is done for, with stores slowly transitioning over to IGA- affiliated stores. I thought this was only a couple of store doing it but there is a small mention of it now on www.thriftwayshopnbag.com. It looks like a few new stores have joined in too, with a former SuperFresh in DE and a Pathmark in Philly that have been taken over by individual owners.

  • Holiday Thriftway: Frankford & Pratt St, Philadelphia, PA 19124 (Former Penn Fruit Company)

I wonder how that agreement came about...anyway I'm glad to see the brand stick around a little while longer. They are using 'Best Yet' as their store brand...again. Thriftway/Shop 'n Bag was using this at their private label before White Rose. It looks like others have bailed out completely including JR's Fresh Market which only opened/joined up with Thriftway Shop n Bag last year...they seem to be being supplied by Foodtown now.
