7th Street Market

The following information regarding the 7th Street Market was provided by Jeff MIssinne in December 2019. "As for the Ansells and 7th Street Supermarket, I know for certain that David was involved, not sure which other brother(s.) In the mid-60's, they moved south to North 26th Street and Tower Avenue under the name Big 7 Food Center. In the 70's they moved further south to a former Co-op supermarket building at 30th and Banks Avenue, and acquired a Piggly Wiggly franchise. Later owners changed its name to Supertown Foods and Jubilee Foods (an IGA chain.) Both the 26th and 30th Street buildings are still standing, though carved up into smaller stores and office spaces. The original 7th Street building has housed a series of bars and night clubs is currently a bar called the Top Hat Tavern."

According to Google Maps, the Top Hat Tavern is located at 705 Tower Avenue in Superior. It is pictured below.
