NEW SIGN!


Yay, for the 3D letters! Boo, for not using the updated "fish-eye" treatment but at this point it appears that sign will not be used on the outside of stores. The new sign looks great against the white siding. All in all, a very nice update despite losing the very last fish-eye sign. 



PREMIUM FRESH & HEALTHY 3.0
INSIDE!


Turns out SuperValu's final decor package is still alive and well at Acme. Perhaps it was used here since it's clearly a low-cost design. That said, it looks really good from our vantage point. This store was in need of a good update and I would say it got it. New frozen food and meat cases are still in the process of being installed. I haven't received confirmation about the floor. This was the last Acme to still have the Produce floor tile from the Colonial 70's decor package. You can have a look by clicking here.



ACME CLOCK REMAINS
OVER ENTRANCE!

So the fish-eye logo will live on at this location, just a very small version of it. You know what's funny... looking back at the picture that was sent in last week, you could see new department signage hanging in the store. No one, including myself, noticed it! The aisle markers couldn't be seen in the photo and they're the really give away when looking through the windows. Gotta say it's great to see a really old an Acme get some much needed attention. Wonder if anything is happening at the Middlesex store? As of now, that location is the last one to have the Checkerboard Arches.

    1. Hey.. Does anyone realize that the aisle markers are two different colors?

    2. It's probably just due to the ceiling lights reflecting off of them.

  2. I imagine Albertsons has lots of surplus PF&H decor stored, which it will probably use up instead of the newest prototype, at least for smaller, older stores.

    1. You make an interesting point- I bet they probably have a warehouse somewhere filled with surplus décor and stuff removed from closed stores... Makes you wonder if the old logos and script font used in the quality-built décor are made new or have been salvaged from remodeled checkerboard arch stores...

    2. The newest decor set is chain-wide, and Jewel-Osco is getting lots of remodels done. The renovations are at least something nice, the ones pre-SVU buyout are the most bland (search Market Mixx for Baton Rouge Albertsons)

  3. Ahart's Market in Blakeslee, PA has Albertsons logo leaves on the wall in produce, perhaps due to being a Great Valu store supplied by Supervalu.

  4. Stopped by Middlesex and it doesn't look like anything is going on there.
