Silas Stillman Pierce opened a grocery story in Boston in 1831 that flourished for the next century and a half providing not just staple goods but gourmet foods and choice liquors to discerning Bostonians. Four generations of the Pierce Family directed this well regarded company, which by World War II had nine stores throughout Boston, which delivered goods initially by horse and wagon, and later by motor, but all in red boxes emblazoned by the Pierce crest of excellence.
In 1991 was company acquired by M. S. Walker, Somerville, Mass.
