Over the years, many retail chains have tried to establish themselves in Florida. This fact is especially true when it comes to supermarkets, as Florida was once home to chains such as Albertsons, Food Lion, Grand Union, Jewel-Osco, Pantry Pride, Kroger, A&P, Xtra Super Food Center, and Delchamps, and I'm sure we could add many more to that list. But it didn't end with supermarkets, discounters like Zayre, Ames, Jefferson Ward, and JM Fields also came to Florida, and so did department stores like Montgomery Ward, Jordan Marsh, and Mervyns. On the drugstore side, Florida was once home to SupeRx, Rite Aid, Revco, Phar-Mor, Drug Emporium, and many others. We also had plenty of restaurant chains skip down here too. In addition to all of those stores, there are also some long gone Florida based chains we may all remember, like Burdine's, Luria's, Kash n' Karry, U-Save, Pic n' Save, and Florida's most famous national chain: Eckerd Drugstores. However, if you tried to find any locations of those stores I just mentioned in Florida today, you'd be out of luck. None of them exist in Florida anymore, and a good number of them don't exist at all anymore. While many of these chains made their exit years ago, the shells of their presence can still be found around the Sunshine State. That's where the MFR Info Database comes in handy, to provide you with the locations of various retail chains that once called our state home. The writers of MFR have various projects in the works, with additional tables added to the database at any time.
Here's what we have so far:
