That first photo looks almost exactly like a Winn Dixie when they had "The Beef People" slogan on the front.

Re: Kroger in Vermont?

Very interesting! In my past research for Food Fair I found many anomalies like that. Company annual reports often did not jive with media and industry reports.

Re: A Little Help?

White labels with sans serif fonts saying Genric or other non descript verbiage.
