Staff of the Sanitary Market

1932 -

Thank you to Elliot Epstein for the photo
Note: This 1932 news photo depicts owner Louis Abromson (in a dark suit) and the employees of Sanitary Market shortly after the business relocated to 65 Lisbon St., Lewiston. A thriving family grocery dating from 1915 and originally situated on Birch Street in Lewiston, the Sanitary Market moved again in 1956 to Spring Street, Auburn, changing its name to Food Town and gradually expanding from its original footprint of 600 square feet to 22,500. It also opened a 15,000 square-foot store in Rumford and another store at the Lewiston Mall.
