Yes, I've been busy this week. This one was much more straightforward than Peoria, at least:

Wow, that 701 Bloomfield Avenue store looks VERY Streamline Moderne....................coolio :-)

The 12 Arlington Avenue store with those dramtic arches, ROCK! I believe there is a photo of this store when it was new somewhere on your site.

Thanks!

Apparently the Bloomfield Avenue Food Fair was some sort of catalog showroom for years after FF moved out (and long before Whole Paycheck arrived).

I've got one or two photos of other stores with the interlocking arches. I know one in Philly was still standing as recently as a couple of years ago. I haven't checked lately; it was looking a bit worse for the wear last time I drove by. I think I also have a postcard photo of one like it in Florida (maybe Delray Beach?).
