Opening of the first supermarket in New York
The first store of this kind was opened in September 1916 in Memphis (United States). In 1930, Michael J. Cullen opened the first supermarket in New York. It offered a large range of goods supplied by a wholesaler friend. Neither shop window nor counter. Cartons of washing powder, boxes of tin cans and crates of bottles were piled high. To cut prices, there was hardly any presentation and no service.
