High Point Historical Society Presents:
Guilford County’s Grocery Store History
This Wednesday, Jan. 18
The High Point Historical Society will be hosting David Gwynn, librarian, urbanist, and retail historian at UNCG. As the creator of Groceteria.com
, one of the first and largest websites devoted to supermarket history, Gwynn will speak on the history of grocery stores in Guilford County. This event is FREE and open to the public.
Along with the program, the Historical Society is partnering with local grocery stores to sponsor a food drive to benefit D-Up. With every canned food donation, attendees will receive a raffle ticket to win local grocery store gift cards. Sponsors for the food drive include Food Lion, High Point Harris Teeters, and The Fresh Market, all of whom have graciously donated food or gift cards for the raffle.
