Food Fair Stores, Inc.
Incorporated in the state of Pennsylvania, Food Fair was once one of the 5 top grocery chains in the country. It also had stores in California and Nevada under different names. The Friedlander family owned it; Revlon Corp. was involved it's its buyout and eventual liquidation. At one time the company was an innovator in many concepts that became very popular later on in retail grocery: electronic registers, scanning, upc, combination stores, discount grocery stores (Pantry Pride), etc.

The company had a rich and controversial history and was one of the original big grocery store chains. Major mismanagement caused this once mighty (and pioneering) grocery store chain to perish!!
