I was doing an image search online to see what the interior of Kroger stores look like. The company just reported it's first quarter results with a nice increase in sales but decline in profits. Plus with all the rumors that Kroger may be buying Acme, I wanted to get an idea of what their stores are like. Well one of them looks just like an Acme! They stole the "Acme Theme Park" decor.

The story and picture explain how the Starbucks has been removed to make room for Sushi. Take a look at the walls in Produce and back in the Bakery... same decor as Acme and similar layout with health foods being the couple of aisles. Yet it's a Krogers... you can see the logo lining the cafe wall. How is this possible? Do grocery store design companies sell the same interior packages to different chains?
UPDATE 6.20.10: Mystery solved thanks to an Anonymous commenter! This store is a former Albertson's in Mississippi which was bought by Kroger. Theme Park decor has not been stolen!
