Recently visited a Jax Market that was a Market Basket

Here's a pic of the signage in the store now

Is this left over from the MB days or is it Jax Decor?

Thanks

It doesn't look like Market Basket decor. The MB's had the same basic interiors that Kroger had from the mid 70's to early 80's. The stores didn't use bright colored stripes like a lot of the stores of the day and tended to use more neutral earthtones. There is a picture of a Kroger on this board somewhere that shows brick tiles inlaid between terrazzo floors. I remember the old MB stores had this exact interior and the newer stores had a slightly updated version of the same thing.

Thanks I couldn't remember clearly i was pretty young the last time I was in a Market Basket, It had to be about 68 or 69. My family used to live next to the Santa Fe Springs location at Telegraph and Orr N Day Road.
