Felpausch /ˈfɛlpʃ/ was a grocery store chain based in Hastings, Michigan, United States. The first store opened in Hastings in 1933, and the chain comprised nineteen stores; eighteen located in the southwestern and south-central Lower Peninsula, while one (a former Carter's Foods) was located in Kimball,[1] just outside of Port Huron.

Felpausch was run by the third generation of family members and had been operating as an associate-owned company since 1995. In March 2007, it was announced that Felpausch was being purchased by Grand Rapids, Michigan distributor and retailer, Spartan Stores.[2] Spartan re-branded all the Felpausch locations except Kimball as D&W or Family Fare.[3]
