The Way it Was: Causeway Super Valu

Causeway Super Valu grocery store

This 1962 street scene, taken by former Tribune advertising manager Howard Colvin, shows the Causeway Super Valu grocery store, which was located at 65 Copeland Ave. from January 1959 to January 1973, according to Tribune files.

Among the items of interest in this photo is the fenced-in swing set and slide, at right, presumably a play area for children while their parents were in the store shopping. This former grocery building remains standing today and is occupied by the Midwest Off-Road Center.
