A pylon sign former grocery store in Mt Rainier, MD?

I pass this store all the time when in DC. It's in Mt Rainier, MD on Rhode Island Avenue just past the DC border.
Any ideas for a brand?

Marina style former Safeway in Los Alamos, NM

Stumbled upon this former Marina style Safeway in a Los Alamos, NM shopping center. The exterior has been heavily modified, but the interior is fairly intact except for the glue-lams painted white. It's now Metzger's Hardware Store. http://www.flickr.com/photos/army_arch/3858973702/ http://www.flick...

Safeway Walnut Creek 1955

I found this photo of the Safeway in Walnut Creek, CA and a floor plan from 1955. Does anyone know where this might have been located in Walnut Creek and if it still exists?

Re: Old Safeway in downtown Tulsa

Hey thanks for all of the information. I didn't get a chance to get out of the car and look in the windows, but maybe someone else did at the conference.
