The Grocery Shopping Evolution in the D.C. Region, 1880–Present

November 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

mondaysdcIn the 1930s, stores like Piggly Wiggly, Sanitary Grocery, and District Grocery allowed Washington area consumers to select their food from store shelves, a novel idea at a time when shoppers had to wait for a clerk to gather their orders. This concept continues to evolve even today, with self-checkout machines at Giant and the ability to stock your shopping cart remotely using online shopping services.

Join Diana Kohn, president of Historic Takoma, as she explores how shopping for food has changed over time. She will focus on the Washington, D.C. area and Takoma Park, Maryland.

This program is part of the D.C. Mondays at the Museum series inspired by the Albert H. Small Washingtoniana Collection. Free; no reservations required.
