I’ve been quietly working on new content as I’ve had time the past few months (which regrettably has not been often) so I guess I should mention some of it here:

New location lists:

Also, I’m almost done with the 1950s section of the revised Safeway history section. And coming soon will be a new LA photo gallery which will include lots of stuff from my recent trip to SoCal.

    Really, really glad to see the new Pittsburgh section.

    So much supermarket history there.

    And your grocerteria “factory” is really a great place to hang. Very inviting.

    I’ve enjoyed wasting time on your website. It was time well wasted. I live in Sacramento and over the years I’ve wandered far and wide around here and for some reason I really enjoy knowing the history of all the grocery stores. I had no idea about the Tognotti’s Auto World building. I used to live near the Tallac Village Shopping Center and I used to wonder if the horrific grocery store there had ever been a nice chain store. The Little Lucky’s on J Street was always a big, big favorite. It’s now a chain drug store now. I work in midtown near one of the very first supermarkets at P and 21st streets. It’s still at least partly a grocery store, but it’s a really bad one. Not hopeless, but definitely a little shabby. Good for cigarettes and bottled lemonade.

    Thanks for sharing what your headquarters looks like. I have a great interest in how people organize their workspace and spend a good bit of time optimizing mine both at home and work. Office furniture is important and so is its placement. I particularly like that you combine office and living. Good deal.
