Some of the data comes from the current (and possibly previous) Franklins website. A tiny bit from the start comes from the page of a Uni of Newcastle academic. Most of it comes from people's personal recollections.

If you think any of this is wrong, PLEASE edit the article or debate it here. matturn 08:14, 4 October 2005 (UTC)

The origan is correct, my grandpar, and as a result my father lived next door to Frank Lindstrom at Strathfield in untill 1957. I would get my father to write here about Frank, but he only knows as much as a small kid would. --Amckern 17:09, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

"friendly style and savings to make customers smile all part of the shopping experience" Some parts definitely biased. Aronzak (talk) 08:36, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

Sounds like it's from an advertisement. Bidgee (talk) 08:38, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

More IGAs convert to Franklins[edit]

Probably should add info about 2 more IGA franchises converting to Franklins franchises. The two additions are: Newtown and Springwood. Unfortunately I don't currently have the time to write something up myself, so here are some references while I can find them. :)
