The chain was founded in 1911 by Michael and Kamol Hamady, who were immigrant cousins from Lebanon and referred to themselves as brothers. Hamady had 18 stores in Flint by 1918, and the chain provided food for participants in the Flint Sit-Down Strike of 1937. Michael sold the chain to his son Robert in 1954, who then sold it to Alex Dandy in 1974.
The chain expanded through Michigan in 1980 by purchasing 21 closed Kroger stores, primarily on the west side of the state. In 1985, Hamady bought two Hutch's supermarkets in Owosso, Michigan. As a result, an existing Hamady in Owosso was converted to a discount store called Price Rite. Hamady was purchased by Alex Dandy, who also owned Chatham supermarkets in Detroit.
By 1988, the former Kroger locations, along with some former Vescio locations in Saginaw, Michigan, had closed. Hamady declared bankruptcy in 1988, and closed the last of its stores in 1991. Some of their locations were sold to Kessel Food Markets, which was founded in 1981 by former Hamady vice president Al Kessel.
