Rolando -- Thanks for another excellent edition of The Retrologist.

A footnote on the Wegmans item. You'll be pleased to know that Wegmans still has one of their vintage locations open for business in their home market, Rochester NY. It's an early 1960's store, from back in the day when Wegmans had three dozen stores in the Rochester area and none anyplace else.

The other stores from that time have all either been closed, or demolished and rebuilt. For some reason, this smallish Wegmans on Fairport Rd in East Rochester survives. It's been updated, but not much.

I wasn't able to post a pic here, but readers can Google and see it -- 851 Fairport Rd in East Rochester NY 14445
