C-Town Supermarkets is a chain of independently owned and operated supermarkets operating in the northeastern United States.[1]

C-Town was founded in 1975.[1] C-Town uses economies of scale so its small member stores can pool their resources for purchasing and advertising.[2] C-Town tends to open supermarkets in locations that suburban stores have abandoned.[2] C-Town Supermarkets tend to depend on more customers who are pedestrians and fewer who drive, as shown by their smaller parking lots.[2]

There are approximately 200 stores in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. C-Town is the fifth-largest food retailer in the New York City metropolitan area. C-Town is supplied by Krasdale Foods; many products sold in C-Town stores are labeled Krasdale Foods (Krasdale also is a supplier for the smaller Bravo supermarket chain). Marketing and advertising for C-Town are handled by Alpha-I Marketing Corp.
