Did any Market Basket use Kroger decor or architecture? Namely, the 70's superstore or 80's greenhouse formats used by Kroger in its namesake stores in the Midwest and South. I would be neat to find a superstore or greenhouse in Southern California. My guess is superstores would be more likely than ...

Kroger briefly sold Cost Cutter beer in the early-80's in the plain yellow can and black print. I was underage when it was available, though honestly it was not on my list of must-have alcoholic beverages at that point.
