Today's Snapshot is a longtime Pathmark-turned-Stop & Shop.
It definitely still has that distinctive Pathmark look! Stop & Shop put very little effort into these conversions, and it really shows in locations like this. Although the decor was replaced (barely), much of the rest of the store stayed the same -- same flooring and ceiling, same lighting, same fixtures, same layout. It's likely that larger renovations are in the works, especially for some of the more profitable locations.
This particular location did not have the famous Pathmark stripe, so Stop & Shop didn't have to redo the facade at all. Just install a new sign. Even less work went into the cart corrals...
That's right, on a sunny day you can still see Pathmark through the Stop & Shop decal! The interesting thing about this store is that it immediately bordered a very small 1950s A&P, just over the municipal line into Maplewood, which you can tour over on Acme Style here. The Stop & Shop is located at 407 Valley St, South Orange, NJ.
