We arrive in Cinnaminson for a look at two different stores, both former supermarkets. This one has quite the history which I've pieced together with JoshAustin610's records, opening as a Penn Fruit and then cycling through a variety of banners and owners before becoming Bottom Dollar in 2012. (Incidentally, if I'm not mistaken, Talk of the Town was a relatively short-lived high-end gourmet market concept by Wakefern, one of several they tested over the years.) If you compare today's exterior pictures to JoshAustin610's 2010 picture linked above, you can see the similarities but that Bottom Dollar did exterior renovations.
They also, of course, redid the entire interior. It looks like this foyer was built out on the front. All these years later and there's still a "thank you for your business, this store is now closed" sign on the door!
Here's the foyer, constructed by Bottom Dollar. We can't see in too much through this area, and clearly it used to be a lot harder to see in before the paper all fell down on the windows!
Here's the exit door just inside.
Looking the other direction across the foyer. The window papering seems to have fully given up in this area. And to the right of this foyer is a single window into the store that allows us to see in (just barely) to the sales floor, where we see that the interior has been cleared out...
There's still a bit of decor on the walls but not much left. Only a few lights left on inside, too. Folks, there's another former supermarket just across the street that we're taking a look at here, and tomorrow, we head into downtown Pennsauken for a look at northern Pennsauken's largest (and, it seems, only) supermarket along with a former store across the street -- one over on The Market Report and one here on Grocery Archaeology!
