Growing up in West Virginia in the 1980s and 1990s, it didn't occur to me that A&P once had grocery operations in the area. So, in spite of the fact that I passed by this grocery store on Stafford Drive dozens if not hundreds of times in close to twenty years, it wasn't until recently that it crossed my mind that this was obviously an A&P "centennial" style store from the 1960s. This location seems to have been a casualty of A&P's misfortunes of the 1970s and early 1980s, in which the chain pulled out of entire regions of the country and slashed its store count in half. Even so, it's stayed in continuous operation as a grocery store since then: First as a local store called Wyatt's Super Market, then as a Foodland franchise by 1987. It settled into an identity as a discount Save-a-Lot store in the mid '90s, and remains as such today...though the ancient produce coolers inside belie an earlier past. Interestingly the entire shopping center was remodeled several years ago, and now displays slanted roofing and gables for the entire length of the concourse...all in the style of a grocery chain that had left the center in question many years earlier.
The People Under The Franchise
The People Under The Franchise
Helpless pedestrians stand beneath the thin strips of OXXO's roof of monopoly. Like what Walmart did to mom & pop grocery stores in America decades ago, OXXO has managed to implement a steady decline in the number of non-franchised grocery stores in Mexico. Though their food prices tend to be frighteningly higher than those of the humblest corner stores, the consistency of delivery and frequency of advertisements under their name has resulted in a great success for the franchise, along with the steady decline of the middle class and the widening gap between the rich and the poor. With an OXXO around nearly every turn, people have reluctantly given up on the humble mom & pop corner store, unknowing of the fragility of these small businesses, and the rapidity of their decline. Together, they stand under the roof of the OXXO, in need for a temporary shelter from the rain, but not a durable one. -----Best viewed on black----- Pentax P30t w/ 50mm f/2 Rikenon Portra 160VC
