Today's former A&P is at the other end of a small strip mall from a Bravo we're touring on The Market Report today. Thanks to JoshAustin610 for the historical info! Until around 2012, this building was a post office, with Dollar General opening in part of it then. But most importantly, if you click on the picture to zoom in, you can see a circle in the center of the facade. This is where A&P's older logo would've been, and it's a pretty safe assumption that this store never got the sunrise treatment. Interesting that this 15,000 square foot store wasn't a Centennial model, given its construction during that period, though it's clearly similar. It's also obvious where the windows along the front wall have been bricked over, probably when the building became a post office. Funny to see that Bravo, the current supermarket in this mall, is just over 1/3 of this former supermarket's size! Tomorrow we're heading south, farther into the city, to tour a supermarket down in Wrigley Park on The Market Report.
