A quick look at the Vernon Acme which opened on October 30. The store has the first version of the "Fresh" remodel. Looks like a beautiful store! Bright new lighting has been added to Produce.
Acme hires cleaning companies to come in and clean these stores from floor to ceiling. It's something to see. I got a glimpse of it at the Weehawken store yesterday. The company being used there is Belfor Property Restoration. Tons of people scrubbing everything in the store. There must have been 10 people on ladders along the front-end alone scrubbing light fixtures, painting ceiling tiles, dusting security cameras and... cleaning every single rung on the massive security gate that extends along the front of the store.
Same sticker treatment that we saw at the 2nd and Girad Ave location in Phlliy.
So this photo answers a question I had... what was Acme going to do with the borders along the top of the cases? These were covered with historic A&P images all done in a green tone. Acme took care of those by painting them black!
Limited aerial views of the shopping center.
1975A&P began in the building to the left of the current store. This is the first year it shows up in the historic aerials.
The replacement store was built sometime between 1995 and 2002.
