It started as a small delicatessen in Washington, D.C. by the Russian immigrants of Irving and Kenneth Herman. The brothers never thought that this business would grow big and even pursed other careers, but with the Great Depression, they continued the small beginning that they started and opened the first Jumbo Food Store. From that time on, it continued to grow and by 1978, the warehouse format was implemented where Brand products are the only one being sold, but the catch is, it is sold for a lower price compared to the other supermarkets in the area. This strategy spanned the curiosity of the market and they gobbled up the idea. This presents the notion that they are getting more than their money deserve because of the Brand that is attached to the label. This new change also brought a new branding to the store, dropping the Jumbo and adopting the Shoppers Food Warehouse name.
