*Fred Meyer ("Freddy's" to locals) is an old local supermarket chain. It's owned by Kroger, but Fred Meyer was beloved to locals, and the home office--also in Cincinnati--made the wise decision to leave the name. The stores are giant and have hundreds of beers and ciders for sale.
**Plaid Pantry is a local convenience-store chain
***Zupan's is a local high-end food market chain. Also a huge selection of beer. That we have so many weird local businesses is probably also instructive, but we'll leave that rumination for later.
