Snapshot: Former ACME - Union City, NJ

Probably the two most common reuses for 1950s supermarkets are dollar stores and pharmacies. We saw an example of the former yesterday, and we'll see another example today.
ACME tower sign still intact, with a clear and readable Dollar General sign. Acme Style has an excellent and in-depth post on this store, which you can read here. (I'm very excited that I only overlap with Acme Style on two posts of the five this week!)
My photos are from December 2017.
Not hard to picture this as a supermarket, as Acme Style points out.
The location is at 2010 John F. Kennedy Blvd, Union City, just about six blocks north of the North Bergen Food Bazaar. In our Hudson County group, our southernmost point was about fifteen blocks north of this store.
