Steinberg grocery bag

In 1917, a Jewish-Hungarian immigrant named Ida Steinberg opened a modest grocery store on Saint-Laurent Boulevard in Montréal. In 1934, her son Samuel and his four brothers took over. At the store, customers could serve themselves instead of waiting at a counter. A few years later, the Steinbergs were running Canada’s largest supermarket chain.
