Supermarkets are not what is implied when you say vintage grocery Stores. My first full-time job was in a small busy Grocery Store of a large Chain in London before Supermarkets came to England. It was a Grocery, Wines, Spirits Tobacconist, and Provisions, like Cheese, Bacon cut as you wait. everything was behind the Counter and on shelves and Customers would wait while you filled out their list. Plus we also delivered. around the Corner was the ironmongers, butchers, Dairy and Greengrocers.

I remembered Piggly Wiggly in Texas but, what happened? And there’s no digital cashiers until late 80’s.

Notice @ :13 and 5:32 N Carolina and Kentucky Kroger in 1947 was serving black folks? Segregation was mostly a myth even in the south. The food in these stores was grown by small family farms, not corporate farms with migrant workers and it was fresh and tasted better. Cigarettes were 15 to 50 cents a pack no sin taxes yet. People aren't fat like today because there was no food pyramid. No one heard of low calories or diet sodas, pure cane sugar not beet sugars, or corn syrups were used. My favorite photo is @ 1:24, but that would be a lawsuit over sexism today. So sad, what a simple wonderful world we left and wound up in this torment in the 21st century we have now.

People used to either dress well for everyday things, but it wasn’t unusual for folks to go to the grocery store in the pj’s either. I remember my mom smoking while grocery shopping, but the floors were always clean. Five loaves of bread for a dollar, but it was that ballon bread. The store had a soda machine and on the rare occasion I had a dime I would by a bottle of orange soda. I had to stand by the machine to finish the soda because I didn’t have two cents for the bottle deposit. Then you just put the empty into the wooden soda crate on the floor. I miss you mom.

I used to love going grocery shopping with my mom. Safeway in the late 1960's had a automatic meat wrapping system that was the coolest thing (to me). and I was fascinated at how the checkers could work so fast without looking at the register. I do all the shopping for my family and I still enjoy it.

2.54 mins into this it shows a mother and kids one kid standing up in a trolley in the year 1956 , here in the UK we lived like bloody savages in those times bloody old miserly corner shops up until tesco it was street markets . the us was the envy of the world . from the cars to houses fashion music you had it all just watch an old 1950s english movie to see how crappy how life style was . bloody stupid cars that always rusted away and broke down then the houses the music was crap too .

I grew up in Australia and I remember going with my mother and three siblings to a supermarket called Coles, slogan: "A new world of shopping." This was in the '60s and they had a space age theme with a huge mural of a rocket landing on the moon. Then when my kids were little (2000's) I took them to a supermarket called Franklin's Big Fresh where they had robot cows that mooed when the kids pressed a button, chickens that clucked, sheep that baa-ed, etc. They loved it, but of course they took all that away when Woolworths bought Franklins. Shopping is boring now.

Good ol days if you were white !! I was born in 1949 and we had a town by-law. … a black person could not sleep overnight. When I 5 or 6 … I used to watch men come out of a meeting hall dressed in white top to bottom sheets with pointed white hats. My grandfather was one of them. I never knew at the time. Ontario Canada

At the 6:49 it states " Grocery store parking lot 1959" Well it can't be 1959 when there is a 1962 Chevy in the parking lot. It just makes me wonder how accurate the dates for the whole video are?

More color, more style and character in vintage groceries. Just like cars back in the day had more colors and shapes. Now almost every car is either black, white, or silver and they're all designed with the same shape, can hardly tell the apart now. Groceries are now cold and industrial looking, no style, no color. white, silver chrome, soulless.

I sure wish I could have contributed to this video when being made because my family opened a Mom & Pop Grocery store back in 1963 and we offered American, Lebanese and Mexican foods and home made deli. We had people from all over the country driving to shop at our store and we ended up supplying over 100 Mexican restaurants their food for years. We had write ups in the Washington Post and more. Man, I have some awesome pics from early '70's of inside the store. I guess I'll have to do my own documentary. Nice video back in time.

Many of the housewives back in the day were having affairs with the men who worked in the butcher section. The ladies would offer their "meat" for a "meaty treat" from the butcher. He would mark down the price per pound depending on what the housewives would do for him back in the refrigerator. Some women got the prices down to almost pennies per pound. That's where the expression "pound your meat" came from. If the store manager caught the butcher and housewife "doing the nasty" he would insist that the housewife come to the front office so he could have his way with her.....sometimes he would ask that she bring one of her girlfriend neighbors for a threesome. If she did he would mark down some of the items in her shopping cart. Cucumbers were always free!!!!!!!!!!

Boy those pictures bring back a lot of memories. I remember when women got dressed up to shop, some stores would deliver without charge, and all allowed credit in my home town because the mines were not working every day. I grew up in the period after WWII when the railroads switched from coal to diesel and most people were changing from coal furnaces to gas or electric, so miner's had it tough. The grocers would write the grocery bill on pads like waitresses use and stack them alphabetically on a set of shelves behind the cash register. Most people would shop on the day after payday and pay part of their old bill and part on the new purchases. I don't know how those grocers made a living but I guess they figured that half a loaf was better than none. Now we have food stamps to help the poor, but what most people don't realize is that it really helped the grocer meet his bills and overhead.

Women in curlers. Most women I knew as a child did their own hair unless it was a special occasion. If seen on Saturday morning, she was headed out Saturday night. If seen Saturday afternoon, she was setting her style for church on Sunday. Curlers most always were wrapped in pretty chiffon scarves.

1:27 What the hell happened to watermelons? As a kid in the 60s and 70s, I remember THOSE giant long heavy watermelons. They'd last for days and take up an entire shelf in the fridge. Today they're like small soccer balls and lack flavor.

Love the soundtrack --- Great video, too! Lots of memories! I recall Mayfair Markets in San Diego in the 60's and 70's, Thrift Mart, too! And PET milk products.... Up in Duluth, MN, there was a house about a block from where my husband grew up that the ground level was a small, neighborhood grocer and the family who owned and ran it, lived upstairs. It was still in business as late as about 1995.
