Diamond’s Jack & Jill (Chain Grocery) –
Diamond’s Department Store and Diamond’s Jack and Jill were operated by James and Jerry Diamond and Stan Fink. Diamond’s Jack and Jill was formerly known as Chain Food Store. In February of 1960 the decision was made to discontinue the grocery operation and devote full time operations and expansion to the hard goods and soft goods lines. This would eventually evolve into Diamond’s Department Store with locations on North Broadway and Arrowhead Shopping Center. Also Young America would be located in the Town & Country Shopping Center.
