I was hesitant to write about this store because it’s just so…vanilla. But I figure if I’m going to write posts about other, slightly more interesting Kroger stores, I’ll need to establish a point of comparison, so have a rather uninteresting Kroger store.
First, a little background: Big Bear Stores was a chain of Columbus-area grocery stores. In 2004, Big Bear’s parent company, New York-based Penn Traffic, pulled the plug on Big Bear’s remaining stores, leaving dozens of vacant supermarkets across Ohio and West Virginia…including this former Big Bear Plus in Reynoldsburg, Ohio.
It’s just a slab of board with some 8½-by-11 sheets of paper listing the items. Bonus tacky points for use of Arial.
