JGenners,

Members of my family operated a grocery store in Poland. Can anyone give
me
the Polish name for grocery store and what the owners might be called.

I could not find it in the occupation list.

Thanks

Norm Katz
There is no particular name for the ownership of the grocery store.

Grocery business was known in 19th century as "towary kolonialne" (colonial
articles). Lately, name "towary spozywcze" or "sklep artykulow spozywczych"
or "sklep spozywczy" replaced an old "colonial" name.
Store owner was also known as "sklepikarz" or "wlasciciel sklepu
spozywczego"
