Somewhere near there, either on Harbor Blvd. or a parallel street, there was an abandoned supermarket, complete with a giant sign in the shape of a letter "T" I could not see any name or other identifying features. The sign was battered, and it looked like it had been closed for many years. It was one of the first "ghost" stores I had ever seen, and it fascinated me. I'm sure it had some influence on my continued interest in vintage and bygone stores.
Obviously, it was not still there rotting in 2004 (Anaheim isn't Harvey, Illinois after all)
I used to pass that store every morning on my way to school, maybe got me fascinated with old stores too. What is it now anyway?
Forgot to add, the Target on Orange Show in San Bernardino was once a White Front, and the former Target on Mountain in Ontario was also once a White Front. Both had also been Fedmarts.
