C-Town - Supermarket savings since '75
C-Town was founded in 1975 with the goal of using collective buying to allow smaller supermarkets to compete with larger stores in terms of purchasing and advertising. Organized under the Krasdale food distribution banner, individually owned, independent supermarkets could decide to join the C-Town association. Today, the chain is the fifth largest supermarket group in the New York metropolitan area, with over 200 locations across five states. Corporate matters are handled by Alpha I Marketing of White Plains, New York, which was developed as a spinoff of the larger Krasdale group during the 1970s.
