The thing to keep in mind for the DC area is that "Food Fair" pre-1959 was a local chain, subsequently bought by Grand Union. The Philly chain used the "Food Lane" in the DC area, but changed to Food Fair shortly after Grand Union bought the local chain.

Food Town was bought by Kroger in 1959, but Kroger left the area in 1964, so Food Town disappeared by 1965. Consumers Co-op bought most of these but that doesn't seem to be the case in Alexandria.
