The exterior shots of Cobb's Supermarket during the opening credits and shown throughout the show were filmed outside of an A & P Supermarket on the southeast corner of Dufferin St. and Steeles Ave. W. in North York (Toronto) Ontario, Canada.
I was a student and a part time employee at the supermarket at the time they filmed these location shots. I remember coming into work one day (spring/summer 1985) and the A & P sign at the front was covered with the Cobb's sign.
I wasn't at work when they did the actual filming but you can see one of my colleagues walking out of the store in one of the shots...the store had a parcel pick-up facility and he was heading out to load up groceries in a customer's car.
The supermarket disappeared from that location during the 1990's and has been replaced by a large chain drug store.
