Grand Reopening is October 18!
Whew! Turns out, it is Acme's most recent remodel package making its way into Willingboro and not something new. This particular look is a hold-over from SuperValu and can been seen in it's entirety in the Bryn Mawr store. I was concerned that Alberstons was going to bring their "Albertsons Market" decor package over to Acme. I'm not a fan of it. You can judge for yourself after the pictures of Willingboro.
The remodel got underway just as the nearby Pathmark was in its final days.
90's decor is being left on the walls and simply painted over. All hanging lights are being removed. A look below at the Willingboro's Bakery before the remodel began...
New aisle markers resting on top of the first aisle waiting to be hung.
The keystones from the 90's must be hard to remove. We've seen them left on the walls for other remodels as well. Click here for a look at them at the former Glassboro store.
The new colors definitely improve the atmosphere of the store.
It will be interesting to see if anything is done with the white and red cases throughout. Doubtful many will be replaced but they could get some sort of makeover.
Floral has been lost it's place as a full-fleged department. The area is now home to paper products. Things are still looking a bit temporary here.

You can still see the outlines of the former arches here.
The new down-sized Floral department is now located by the registers. Smaller area but much more visible to shoppers entering the store.
"Albertsons Market" decor package
This is the package that I was concerned was coming over to Acme. It has been used at the Albertsons stores that Cerberus already owned, those not purchased by SuperValu back in 2006. It does has a few nice elements and colors but overall it's rather dull and too generic. No more so than in the Deli...
The wall decor is not working here at all. Things do improve in other departments.
Better than the Fresh Deli but really bland. Hoping we don't see a return of the leaf to Acme.
