A fantastic night view of a Food Fair supermarket, circa 1960, when the company cracked the ¾ of a billion dollar mark in sales and had more than 400 stores. To me, this store shines for a number of reasons, including the superb signage and metalwork and the “open ‘til” digital clock. All were hallmarks of Food Fair in the late fifties and sixties (in prior years the stores featured a neon clock face on the famous grooved pylons to inform shoppers of closing time). The pseudo-stained glass above the awning tops it off to great effect.
I don’t know about you, but if my local grocery store looked like this, I’d forget to buy stuff on purpose just so I'd have to make extra shopping trips!
