This needle book was part of a promotion for the Grand Opening of Alber Super Markets. There is some yellowing and creases, however it is still intact at the fold and there are needles still in place.

In 1933 William H. Albers opens Ohio's first supermarket, the Albers Super Market, in Norwood, OH at Montgomery Road and Madison Avenue. This may be the first grocery store anywhere to use the name "supermarket" although he spelled it Super Market.

As a small girl, I remember shopping at Albers at a different location in Cincinnati. I did not realize that it was a chain of markets, I thought that was the only one. My memory of Albers is of returning glass pop bottles, putting them on a conveyor belt and receiving our return bottle fee.
