local grocery stores with history and "characters" for channel 11

j3s | Nov 11, 2002 04:54 PM

someone from channel 11 contacted me about doing a story on the big chains vs. little guys. I'll paste her email here to give an idea what she's looking for:

"I'm producing a story for Channel 11s Chicago Tonight about local grocery stores vs. the big guys e.g Dominicks / Jewel. I saw your list on your website but I'm hoping someone can point me to a store with owners who have a real histroy w/ Chicago, and would be willing to talk about their story on camera. "Characters" are always good. Can you point me towards anyone? This will go on air Tuesday, November 12th so I need to hear back quick. Thanks."

i have a couple ideas (caputo's, the spice house), but have a feeling you guys could come up with more. thanks!
