Supermarkets are not what is implied when you say vintage grocery Stores. My first full-time job was in a small busy Grocery Store of a large Chain in London before Supermarkets came to England. It was a Grocery, Wines, Spirits Tobacconist, and Provisions, like Cheese, Bacon cut as you wait. everything was behind the Counter and on shelves and Customers would wait while you filled out their list. Plus we also delivered. around the Corner was the ironmongers, butchers, Dairy and Greengrocers.

I remembered Piggly Wiggly in Texas but, what happened? And there’s no digital cashiers until late 80’s.

One of the pictures taken in 60's period reminds me of the H&B grocers in South Texas at that time. Good feelings!

My mother would take me shopping at safeway with her...she'd buy me 25 cent tennis shoes from there...I wanted to buy the same tennis shoes for my kids...but they were $50 dollars...WOW
I also remember men stopping and starring at my mother as she shopped...she was a beautiful woman...

Notice @ :13 and 5:32 N Carolina and Kentucky Kroger in 1947 was serving black folks? Segregation was mostly a myth even in the south. The food in these stores was grown by small family farms, not corporate farms with migrant workers and it was fresh and tasted better. Cigarettes were 15 to 50 cents a pack no sin taxes yet. People aren't fat like today because there was no food pyramid. No one heard of low calories or diet sodas, pure cane sugar not beet sugars, or corn syrups were used. My favorite photo is @ 1:24, but that would be a lawsuit over sexism today. So sad, what a simple wonderful world we left and wound up in this torment in the 21st century we have now.

Soda always tastes better coming out of a glass container.

People used to either dress well for everyday things, but it wasn’t unusual for folks to go to the grocery store in the pj’s either. I remember my mom smoking while grocery shopping, but the floors were always clean. Five loaves of bread for a dollar, but it was that ballon bread. The store had a soda machine and on the rare occasion I had a dime I would by a bottle of orange soda. I had to stand by the machine to finish the soda because I didn’t have two cents for the bottle deposit. Then you just put the empty into the wooden soda crate on the floor. I miss you mom.

10 Fun Facts About America Even 60 Incredible Vintage Photos Of Grocery 4 months ago   11:37

How much do you know about the U.S.? Were you aware that the Library of Congress could have a record of some of your social media posts? Let’s see which of these 10 little-known facts about the United States will manage to surprise you the most!

For example, in fact, there were actually 6 American flags placed on the moon during the Apollo landings. It’s unknown whether all those flags are still standing, but the ones that remain have most likely been bleached completely white, from exposure to radiation from the sun.
Or what do you think America’s favorite drink is? Go ahead and guess down in the comments! Tea, coffee, soda, juice? If you think soda, you wouldn’t be entirely wrong since it was the top beverage choice for Americans until recently. Now, its crown has passed to…bottled water!

SUMMARY:
- In the U.S., you can see the Star-Spangled Banner waving in the wind at fast food joints, standing tall in people’s yards or attached to their houses, and printed on all kinds of stuff like clothing, pillows, and coffee mugs.
- If Armstrong was the first, not many people know that the last man to walk the moon was Apollo 17 Commander Eugene Cernan.
- With a surface area of about 31,700 square miles, this lake is about the size of South Carolina! And with a volume of 2,900 cubic miles, Lake Superior is big enough to cover the entirety of North and South America in a foot of water.
- Both museums saw around 7 million visitors in 2017, making them tied for the #3 spot on the list of the world’s most visited museums.
- In 2016, Americans consumed 88.8 gallons of coffee per capita! So, now you know why your favorite coffee shop is always so crowded!
- The Library of Congress is the largest library in the world, holding over 167 million items like rare books, manuscripts, photographs, recordings, and plenty of other important and historic materials.
- But when it was installed back in 1923, this iconic sign actually read “Hollywoodland” instead of “Hollywood.” It was originally meant to be a real-estate ad for an upscale district that was only supposed to stand for about a year and a half.
- According to the National Retail Federation, more than 175 million Americans are estimated to participate in the holiday in 2018 and will spend around $9 billion.
- The tallest building in America is the One World Trade Center at 1,776 feet. But for a long time, from 1931 to 1972, it was the 1,250-foot-tall Empire State Building that held this title.
- A lesser known fact is that Lady Liberty looked quite different when she first arrived in New York from Paris. When the copper statue was completed and brought to America in 1886, it was more like the color of a penny.
