And I still miss Weingarten's.
I've never heard of such.

Default A Little More About Weingarten's

I mentioned them in my original post.

I tried to find some more info on them, best I could find is a discussion thread on a Houston architecture site (ignore the very last post, the guy sounds like a malcontent): Weingarten's - HAIF

It really was a great store, but I guess after the family sold the grocery business in 1980 the new owners thought 4 years of fighting against Kroger was enough. They had started an ad campaign with the tag "Kroger, we're out to beat you!". A week after roll-out, Weingarten's closed.

Wait a minute... didn't Albertsons only enter Houston in 1995? They sold some to Kroger and closed the rest of their stores here in early 2002 (I do remember the 1960/Eldridge one opening in 2000), so why would the Bridgedown store have been replaced so soon?

I looked at Publix's website, and Publix hasn't even expanded into Louisiana and Mississippi.
