Re: Food Lion divisions

I am also particularly interested in Food Lion's new upscale and budget tiers, the latter of which appears to little online information describing them. As I understand it, the lower divisions of Bottom Dollar and in SC, Reid's, seems to simply convert existing FL stores in rural or low-income urban...

Belk department stores

I was wondering on how the hyphenated name system of Belk in past eras worked. Were the groups "Belk-XXXX" co-owners of Belk stores in a particular geographic region, being as local retailers or were they like investment groups? I know that Belk eventually abolished the system by 1998, but are the b...

Re: WinnDixie Interior Signs

Are these signs and interior decor of the nineties' coral pink, white and light green scheme or of an earlier era? If they are newer, I would be interested in seeing them. Thanks!
