Albertsons - Before and After

This Albertsons store, located in Lewiston, Idaho, opened in 1950 and sported architecture typical of many supermarkets of the era. In 1962, the store was expanded and remodeled in order to accomodate increased business and a growing selection of non-food items. The original store's arch-trussed roof (and a portion of the original facade) is still clearly visible behind the new facade. The "Albertsons" lettering here is an unusual variation -it almost looks as if they tried to emulate the font style of the original store sign.

  1. I wish you could upload more old Albertsons pictures from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.

    Thank you very much.
