I ramble about this quite a bit, and it's one of the few of my obsessions that other people here seem to enjoy talking about too, so I might as well give it its own thread.
Anyway, here are a couple relevant photos I took today:
This was originally Columbus Square Shopping Center's Cub Foods store. In 1997, SuperValu decided to pull out of the Columbus market and sold its four remaining Cub Foods stores in the area to grocery giant Kroger. This particular store operated as a Kroger until last year, when Kroger closed it after determining this location to be unprofitable, in part, because the former Cub store was much larger than other area Kroger stores.
I noticed this on an old cart at Ollie's Bargain Outlet, also at Columbus Square. It's the pre-2008 Wal-Mart logo...but in Arial
. The other Wal-Mart logos on the cart seemed fine, it was just the handle that was weird.
(Also of note is that Ollie's Bargain Outlet didn't even attempt to cover or remove the Wal-Mart logos on these old carts.)
