@JoNorvelleWalker Acme is still present in Northern NJ— specifically Morris Plains. “Acme” was my first actual word as a child outside of yes, no and forms of mom and dad. 

  I haven’t been in their store on probablt 15 years but it changed a bit since my childhood. I have had them delivered via Instacart. 

 

  A&P I remember fondly as the one that was in Morristown (and is now a Whole Foods) sold alcohol so I could shop there for food while in college and buy beer and have my friends give me money back for it when my parents thought I was just getting food. 🙈

 

 Jeff who? Corzine? 

 

I also foundly rememner Grand Union in Basking Ridge. 

 

 

In this case Jeff Bezos.

 

I do have somewhat fonder memories of Acme from when I was growing up in Philadelphia in the 1950's.

There is an Acme near me, in Hamilton Square. It doesn’t get nearly as much business as the ShopRite which is a 1/2 mile away, smaller store, higher prices.

Went to H mart in Merrifield to replenish our kimchi supply.  Saw these mushrooms.  Does anyone know what meat flavor means?  And lobsters were on sale 7.99 a pound.  There is some glare from the glass but these crustaceans were huge!

Just a marketing miss-step as usual with Asian countries and English mash up. . They are "meaty". My favorite Korean market slices them cross-wise, sautees and does a soy sauce/wasabi dip. Wonderful.
