Re: The closest vintage market near you that is in original condition

Closest for me would have to be this one, which I just featured on Twitter about a month ago. It was part of a local co-op called Bi-Rite and this is the last one remaining with that branding. Dates from about 1965.

NEW: Saginaw MI, 1925-2020

For your Saturday afternoon: https://www.groceteria.com/place/us-michigan/saginaw/ A lot of Saginaw (in general, not just supermarkets) is no longer standing, but there are some survivors to be found. This also clued me in as to some of the odd-looking Kroger stores there and in Flint that apparentl...

Re: NEW: Gary, Indiana 1911-1975

The table cleared up the mystery about the arch-roofed Kohl's doppelgänger at (approximately) 6140 Broadway in Merrillville! It was once a Tittle & Sons food store. Yeah, I meant to mention that. I'm not sure if it was anything before or if they built it. The city directories list that address as i...

Re: University Washington Safeway

Sigh. I remember driving by the store on a trip to Seattle almost 20 years ago and thinking I should stop in later. Never got the chance.

Re: Unintentional interface change

It had reverted to the generic built-in template, so it's likely you'd seen it elsewhere.

Re: New location lists: Cleveland and Columbus

Doing some overdue updates to Cleveland to fill in some gaps. I've made additions to the city (a few more to come later) and I'll work on the suburbs over the next week or so. I've also taken the map live, which I apparently forgot to do before.

Re: Unintentional interface change

It was a quick fix, just an unexpected one that I didn't have time to deal with earlier. Should be good now.

Unintentional interface change

So even though I had the automatic updated turned off at my host (for just this reason) it apparently swung into action today and wiped out my template. I’m away from home now, so I can’t really do anything about it. Sorry if things aren’t where you’re expecting them to be right now. I’ll fix it as ...

Re: Department store Records department photos/info?

I have several of these from record store chains, but i don’t think I’ve never seen one from a department store chain. That’s pretty cool.
