Philadelphia's Food Fair (not to be confused with an independently-operated Detroit-based chain) had its beginnings as the Reading Giant Quality Price Cutter store, which opened -in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania- in the late 1920s. The Food Fair name appeared in the 1940s. By 1957, there were two hundred and seventy-five stores, and over five hundred by the mid-1960s. Acquisitions were conducted between 1958 and 1963. Most -if not all- Food Fair stores had been converted to the Pantry Pride discount brand by 1970. By 1987, these stores had been shuttered.
