Old Kroger storefront, Princeton, WV

Old Kroger storefront, Princeton, WV
Here are some more old grocery stores.

Princeton, WV is a city in which Kroger has had a long history. This storefront on the corners of Trent and Mercer streets near Mercer School (a place where I unwillingly played a few soccer games back in '92) was presumably the chain's original location. It was replaced in the '50s or very early '60s by a more modern supermarket up a couple blocks; now demolished.

Ironically, if you look closely enough at the faded remnants of the Pepsi advertisement on the side of the building, you'll see the earlier remnants of an Coca-Cola ad underneath.
