The Ideal Acme of the 60's

This rendering appeared on the back of Acme's courtesy card application well into the 90's. This style of Acme is referred to as the "pitched-roof" style. Stores like this were built throughout the 60's and very early 70's mostly in Pennsylvania. Many of these buildings still stand today but have been converted from Acmes to other retailers. This style of Acme is a favorite here at the Acme Style Blog and will be the focus of many posts to come.
