Seaway Food Town
Seaway Food Town Supermarkets began in 1948. The company operated Food Town Supermarkets and The Pharm deep-discount drug stores in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. Seaway Food Town was a publicly traded company which later merged with Spartan Stores in 2000.
At the time of the merger, the company operated 47 Food Town supermarkets and 26 The Pharm deep-discount drugstores.
In 2003 Spartan Stores sold or closed all 39 of the Food Town stores, as the Toledo area's second leading grocer left town.
