Foodland, 1965, Blairsville

Foodland Grocery Store Blairsville GA Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing North Georgia USA 2015

Built as the Superette by Bill Hunter and BJ Davis in 1965, this local landmark was bought by Wayne Abercrombie and Tony Dyer bought it in 1968 and operated it as the A & D Supermarket until 1974 when Wayne bought Tony out and changed the name to Foodland. It’s a great independent business and even in the age of big box stores, it remains a favorite in downtown Blairsville. It looks virtually the same as it did when I shopped here as a student at Young Harris College in the late 1980s.
