Re: Former Raleys in Las Vegas

The Food4Less at Green Valley Parkway and Warm Springs is a former Raley's/Albertsons...it was closed for a couple months for remodeling after Raley's sold it to Kroger...

Before they did the awful remodel to the store at 55 S Valle Verde, it was an Albertsons interior...

Re: Unusual shaped Vons sign, 9119 Reseda Blvd, Northridge

It looks like the sign for some of the older VONS in Las Vegas, except most of the older ones in Vegas were orginally Safeways, which I was told was the original maker of this sign shape...

Re: Before and After Remodel Photos

We have a couple Albertsons here in Vegas, with some crazy decor overhangs, like the pretzel, or a huge toys r us sign for the toy aisle, a barn, the frozen foods over hang, a swinging bakery sign and a swinging pet sign that rotates over the section...it is very ridiculous...

Re: Closed VONS, closed Albertsons, Las Vegas, NV

I drove by the Ocotillo Plaza today, looks like something replaced the Albertsons/Raley's/Food 4 Less like and independent market or something like it, I wasn't able to see the sign from Eastern and they took down the pylon on Eastern since there is no more PetsMart (it moved down to Eastern and Pat...

Re: Closed VONS, closed Albertsons, Las Vegas, NV

thanks for helping me out with ocotillo plaza, because i saw the now-close food4less, as a Raley's and originally as an Albertsons, but never the Circuit City because it was before my time...

what was a liquor barn, was it just a liquor store that couldn't fit in the original store?

I don't know if I should start a new topic for this or if this is even appropriate, but today I just noticed that the VONS on North Las Vegas Blvd closed...Apparently it is a former Safeway from the way its sign is shaped...

it is very common for pharmacies on the East Coast to put pharmacy or pharmacy within on their signs, it had to do when drug stores were sometimes built without pharmacies, such as the case with CVS (mainly the one in the malls), and then CVS/pharmacy... yeh, I saw the ones in Philly, many different...

In Las Vegas the older Walgreens don't have the neon things, only the ones built in the last 3 years have the neon things...so I guess you're right... I think with Rite-Aid its more of a stand-alone vs. in-line/older vs. newer...even though we do have 2 or 3 in-line that are blue and have the diamon...

nope that's not it because in Pennsylvania, most of their stores have red lettering...except for the standalone ones with the white lettering, its strange, I guess they differentiate the standalone, newer ones, from the older in-line ones with the fonts...

The CVS in Boulder City has their sign in a Thrifty oval, it was previousl...
