Not sure on this one. It almost looks like an A&P, and there were A&P stores in the Bakersfield area, but I wouldn't want to wager too much on that guess...

Dutch Square Mall, Columbia SC: A&P?

I'm guessing it was an A&P. It looks like a detached A&P from a similar mall in High Point NC. Anyone want to confirm?

Re: Mikes-Sacramento, CA

Here are some pictures of this store before a new sign was put up sometime over the past year. The discount portion of the prices seems to have also gone away. Still the same other than that. I think this store is a good example of a preserved Mayfair interior. Too bad the office is on a raised pla...

The superstore decor was very 1970's rustic- earth tones, wood trim, different brick patterns in the tile in each department, green in produce, red in meat, yellow in deli for example. "Tomorrow's store today: Kroger's got it!" Sorry. Just had to sing the superstore jingle, which is still etched in...

Wow....from what I have read before, I had been under the impression that Kroger had been here a while before selling to Bi-Lo...but 6 months definitely isn't long at all! I'd love to hear more on this. Actually, Kroger had been in Charlotte for over a decade prior to this "swap". They got the extr...

Re: Food Giant, Ogletree's

Food Giant: We (me and my family, growing up in Atlanta) shopped here a lot -- at least I think we did. Dad swears it was actually Food Lion , but I swear it was Giant. How about Giant Food? I donlt know anything about it, but I remembered shooting one when I was in Atlanta in 2001, and sure enough...

Re: Best Products

Hey all, This is my first post in a community I've been observant of for some time now; it's good to be here. Does anybody recall having a Best Products store near them? There was one, maybe two, up/down here in Grand Rapids, Michigan that closed in the late 1990's. One of the buildings sat empty f...

Charlotte NC 1988: Kroger/Bi-Lo Swap

Hi all... I know this was discussed on the old board, but I'm bringing it back to life here. In 1988, a strange series of swaps happened between Kroger and Ahold-owned Bi-Lo in Charlotte NC. What happened, from my memory and miscellaneous research, is that Bi-Lo exited the Charlotte market in April ...

Hi Gang, Forgive me if you think this is an inappropriate post for this part of the forum, but I want to know the addresses of all of the former Safeways in the Los Angeles, CA area that became Vons stores in 1986. Benjamin (StoreLiker2005) Not inappropriate at all. I'd like to see this list too, a...

Thanks for the confirmation. I thought I remembered it as a Futurestore; I believe it opened close to the (brief) time I lived in Myrtle Beach in 1986. I knew about the Family Marts; I've been to the one in Columbia; if I'm not mistaken, there is another former FM in West Columbia or Cayce as well. ...
