Not the most exciting one ever, and not heavy on good artifacts (save a few centennial A&Ps) but here it is:

4526 W Western Ave is worth a look-see! An 1980s Kroger greenhouse store still in operation with original exterior signage, replacing a 1950s store on the same site.

There's a very early Kroger greenhouse (curved walls, no pillars) at 909 North Bendix Drive. This exterior is also still intact, even though the building has been converted to house a church of all things!

There's also a nicely preserved former superstore at 1010 S. Merrifield in Mishawaka.
