I worked there for years. It was a great place to work. We had a lot of fun there. And yes the cart said, "Come on in & push me around" Lots of great memories. I am still friends with many of my co-workers from there.

Chicago markets was awsome. I remember loblaws they sre still in busness in canada. Didnt care for foodland. Grants was in north utica and moved to horatio center in the early 70s. They also had a grand union grocery at horatio and that basically put north utica stores out if business.

I live in Northern NY (Ogdensburg) but reading your posts about Chicago Markets reminds me of when I was little. I am 41 years old and in 1978 Chicago Markets opened in the former A&P in our downtown mall. That store was cool because it had a conveyor belt that ran from the checkouts down to the front entrance so you wouldn't have to carry your groceries out to your car. That store closed in 1980. There was a second Chicago Markets here in the Park Plaza which opened in 1979 and closed in 1983. That store was originally Acme (1972-1979). After Chicago Markets closed it was Super Duper (1983-1992) then Jubilee Foods/IGA (1992-1995). Vacant since 1995, the store (along with the entire plaza) was torn down in 2009. It is now a vacant lot. Former Acme stores in Canton and Massena also became Chicago Markets in 1979 and closed in 1983 becoming Super Dupers that

Omg, it was nice to read all of these posts. I was just talking with a coworker about Chicago Market store. My dad use to build them and my mom worked in the deli when i was 6,7,8. I use to walk down to the store after school and meet my mom when we could actually walk alone back in the day. I lived in north utica near seymour school. The good old days.

I worked there for 10 years while going to high school and college. Then I moved to California to start my real career. I remember Manny Kaminski (spelling?) who's father started the business. I also remember Mr. Glick,(spelling?) who was 2nd in charge. They would visit each store together.

I worked in the old & the new New Hartford, NY, Chicago Market stores. Erica Grinsberg was a dear friend & co-worker. She was one of the sweetest woman I have ever met. She used to invite me to her house for dinner with her family. I'm 61 now and I have lived in Calif. since 1979. It was so nice to see her name and someone who knew her as well. Thank you.

Grew up in North Utica, more towards the Eastern end. Anyone remember the store down there? It was called Super Saver. At the corner of Herkimer Road and Briarcliff. Maybe I am wrong, but wasn't there also a card store in the North Utica Shopping center called VanTine's ?(Spelling?)
