Pick n Save
Barney Kroger bet his life savings ($372) on a standalone grocery store at 66 Pearl Street, Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1883. 140 years later, the Kroger Company has almost 2,800 stores throughout 35 states, known by 28 different names.
“As America’s grocer,” Kroger believes, “everyone deserves to have access to fresh, affordable and delicious food, no matter who you are, how you shop or what you like to eat.”

Sendik’s Food Market
The Balistreri family relocated to Milwaukee from Sant’Elia, Sicily, in 1926. They made their living selling fruits and vegetables from a horse-drawn wagon before opening markets on Oakland and Downer avenues.
Tom Balistreri, grandfather endearingly known as “Mr. B,” opened a third location in the center of Whitefish Bay on the corner of Silver Spring and Lake drives. Sendik’s “became known for honesty and integrity in treating customers and suppliers with courtesy and respect.”
