Colonial Stores were chain grocery stores once found throughout the South. Most were transformed to Big Star Markets in the 1970s (later Harris Teeter and The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company). The chain evolved from Norfolk, Virginia's D.P. Pender grocery stores, and were known for a rooster logo. It is one of a handful of regional grocery chains based in Norfolk, including Giant Open Air and Be-Lo Food Stores.
