Description

The Barcelos brothers opened three grocery stores in Lawrence (185 Lawrence Street), Andover (68 Main Street), and Metheun (corner of Jackson and Swan Streets).

The first store was opened by two brothers: Joseph R. and Carlos M. Barcelos. The Barcelos brothers immigrated to the United States from the Azores and opened this store in 1961.

With the expansion of two more locations, two of their younger brothers, John A. Barcelos and George M. Barcelos, joined in the business with their older brothers.

The Andover location was closed in the 1980s and the two remaining locations closed in 1998.
