Preserving the History of Acme Markets – Acme Style

I was talking about Super Markets in the forum last night which got me looking for an original photo of my childhood super market, which was an Acme. While doing so I stumbled across the blog, Acme Style. Which is a dedicated to preserving the history of Acme Markets. Its blog entries entries are packed with pictures and stories of closed, abandoned and repurposed Acme grocery stores throughout Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. Many of the photos are a haunting reminder of the constant state of change, but also the need to remember things before they are lost forever.

Thorough and well researched, Acme style is well worth checking out even if your hometown market was not an Acme.

    Boy, does this bring back memories.

    Too bad the Flourtown PA store where I grew up wasn’t featured on the blog, but the Sea Isle City store that I’ve been in a million times was.
