Shopping in the 60's

Here are two vintage views of 1960's grocery stores, as featured on postcards from the Piggly Wiggly Manufacturing Division. The postcards are labelled "Impact Merchandaising." These may or may not be high impact, but they certainly bring back memories of what stores used to look like.

I can just hear the ka-ching of the old cash registers in the check out lines!

Great card, interesting look back. Happy PFF

What I remember was no fresh fruits and veggies out of season - unless from a greenhosue and very expensive.

Great cards. I like the design of these 60's shops, but the choice was limited and the lines in shops have shortened too (it took me half an hour on saturdays to buy bread or meat). Shopping has changed since then, in a new dimension.
