Midwest Stores Chicago

A picture on posted on Forgotten Chicago's Facebook page.  It spurred a lot of comments and memories.  The Midwest Stores were a purchasing collective for Polish corner grocery stores to give them a little leverage on the chains.  The Newberry Library's Foreign Language Press collection has an English translation of an interview with the President of the Midwest Stores Group.

I found this still extant sign for the group while walking the city via google maps.
