Capitol Hill Historical Society | The grocery revolution reaches Broadway

Groceteria #15 was at 1320 East Pike and opened on February 1, 1917 — the 15th store in 15 months. It was called the Renton Hill store, referring to the neighborhood name that was still in use for the area now around Trader Joe’s.

    Seattle's first self-service grocery chain, Groceteria, opened its Broadway store in the Summer of 1916 at 233 Broadway E, just south of Thomas. It served the neighborhood along with Capitol Hill and Renton Hill stores for a decade before its surprising collapse.
