  2. Here are interior pictures of a 60's era grocery store in NM. It looks much like I imagine ACME used to look, with the low shelves and refrigerator casings. http://metv.com/stories/abandoned-grocery-store-looks-unchanged-since-1960s

  3. Does anyone have any classic interior pictures of the east Brunswick Kmart? He store closing sales are in full swing and I want to see into its history. I know that they had/have a regional corporate office upstairs there but I'm not surprised they're closing because nobody goes there.

  4. A new Aldi will be opening in the same s/c in Limerick, PA on Ridge Pike near Lewis Road, where Acme was located. I believe it will be in the former Acme space, but can't confirm as I've only seen it at night lately.

  5. The Society Hill ACME (formerly Superfresh) will close in about two years as it was unable to renew its lease (developer building new structure)

  6. Some interesting trivia about the former Westtown store: The farm across 202 from it belongs to the Robinson family, original founders of ACME. I wonder if the store placement there was intentional.
