Not so much fun from the front. One interesting thing to note is the location of the Produce receiving doors. They're located in a flat-roofed section along the right side of the building instead of being contained under the pitched-roof as they are in every other model I've ever seen. Check out the back of the store...
The world's great grocery store sign in painted form! Seems odd that they went to all the trouble since the back of the store doesn't seem to have been in of nearby roads.
I don't have any information on when this store opened or when it closed. The large store in the shopping center behind the old Acme is a Tops Friendly Market.
1969Interesting section at the back of the store. Clearly added on while it was an Acme. The building next store looks to have had an addition put on soon after. The Acme sign that was painted on the back must not have been fully exposed for very long.
Thanks to Hugh for sending in the pictures!
