Save Mart Time Capsule
I feel like Save Mart kinda forgot they have a store at Herndon & Marks.
I mean, that lighting in the produce section is cool and all. But it ain’t new.
You walk in the store and it’s like “Wait. Where am I? What year is this? Am I Marty McFly?”
Look at this freezer case:
You don’t see freezer coffins/bins like that much anymore.
The Liquor Department sign and then beer doors are priceless:
Those handles are perfection.
If you wait long enough, all style looks cool and retro. This Save Mart has waited long enough.
Oh gosh, look at that dairy section:
Then there is my favorite, the meat/deli counter sign:
I know it used to be a Vons. And if my memory serves, it was a Save Mart or a Safeway before that?
I simply apprciate that it is still there and seems to have missed out on a one or two rounds of Save Mart chain remodels. You know, like my neighborhood Save Mart with the strange sounds and bad parking lot.
Please don’t touch this store, Save Mart! I feel like it’s only a year or so away from everyone appreciating the hell out of its design and I will be here for it.
Thanks for reading. Please subscribe if you haven’t and share if you can.
