A quick tour of the Edgewater Acme which has been open for a few weeks now. I've been shopping at this store for well over a decade and have watched it go through 2 full remodels. I've also seen the business go down here significantly between the poor leadership of A&P and the Target across the parking lot getting the PFresh remodel. Things appear to be turning around since Acme has taken over. The store is busier than it's been in years right up to my last visit on Saturday.
"Pathmark" has been removed from some of the signage around the store and has not been replaced with "ACME".
Interesting logo on the floral signage.
Spot lights that used to line the first aisle of the heath food department have been replaced.
That restrooms are now brought to you by ACME.
"SAVE" replaced with "ACME Local" stickers.
Huge difference in Produce with the new lighting.
Acme has painted all cases black which looks pariculary good with the other colors already used throughout the store.
Looks like Acme is trying to revive the hot foods at this store. I don't recall seeing this case stocked so well.
These cases used to be all white. Acme painted them and installed new bumpers. The cases actually look brand-new.
This store got off to a bit of a rough start. There seemed to be more items on the shelves being discontinued than not! Looks like this isn't as much of a problem in more recent conversions as A&P and Pathmark aren't doing much restocking in stores that are due for conversions.
Surprising how much a little black paint can class up the joint...
The café is drawing decent crowds. It was usually pretty dead in the Pathmark days.
Acme unburied the Bistro! Pathmark pulled the plug on this years ago and filled the counters with random merchandise. Acme's $19.99 meal deal bags are now kept on the counters.
Can't remember if the soft drink cases at the front end used to say Pathmark but they now say ACME. Every single on of them.
Four self-checkouts gone, replaced with one express register... that isn't always open. I've heard shoppers complain about the shelf checkouts being gone as I've waited in line.
Look closely and you'll see the Acme and some neighboring stores have solar panels on their roofs.
