Former Albertsons #4381 - Tamarac, FL


Family Mart #XXX / Florida Choice #XXX / Albertsons #4381
7100 North University Drive, Tamarac, FL - Family Mart Shopping Center

     AFB returns to South Florida with today's post, where we'll be taking a look at a former Albertsons store in suburban Broward County with an interesting history behind it. For the most part, Albertsons preferred to build their stores brand new in Florida, with only a small number of exceptions to that rule through the years. Some examples of Albertsons taking over a building from another retailer included #4382 in Stuart (former ground-up build Florida Choice), #4423 in Winter Park (former Xtra Super Food Center), #4422 in East Naples (Former Walmart), #4428 in Tallahassee (former Kmart), #4455 in Miami Gardens (former Xtra Super Food Center), and #4496 in Pensacola (former Delchamps). You also have the 7 stores Albertsons bought from Jewel-Osco thrown into that mix too (#4401-#4407, all around Tampa Bay). Sadly, a good number of those stores were either remodeled beyond recognition or outright demolished in the years since Albertsons left, with only #4496 and a handful of the former Jewel-Oscos still retaining any of their original supermarket characteristics today. #4381, which we'll be touring today, still had a little bit from its past to share. It's not a lot, but at least there were some clues about this building's past left behind for us to take a look at today!

     The building we see here opened in August 1979 as an A&P-owned Family Mart store. Family Mart was a supermarket chain developed by A&P using the (then very futuristic) "one stop shop" grocery format. The "one stop shop" format meant the new supermarket would be a large store featuring a selection of everything you could imagine: a full service deli and bakery department, a camera shop and film developing center, a lunch counter, a service pharmacy and drug store, and a full liquor store as some of the primary features. Coming in around 55,000 square feet, the new Family Mart store was very large for the time too, its size relaying the point that everything you could want was located under one roof. If the format of Family Mart sounds familiar to you, it should, as the Floridian Albertsons stores of the time were operating under a identical format. According to Family Mart's advertising executive Tom Hoye, Family Mart was directly patterned off Albertsons. To quote Mr. Hoye directly from an article I read about the opening of the new Tamarac Family Mart, "We come by plagiarism, honestly," he said, in reference to Family Mart's resemblance to the new Albertsons stores opening at the time. Family Mart itself was developed by a few A&P executives who had come to the company from Albertsons, and decided to copy the format after seeing how much success Albertsons was having with it. A&P began opening Family Mart stores in South Carolina in 1977, then moving into Georgia, and then Florida, where the new concept would for the first time be going head to head with its clone, Albertsons.

     The Tamarac Family Mart was the 16th location for the chain when it opened in August 1979, and Florida's first Family Mart as well. Tamarac was chosen to be the site of Florida's first Family Mart due to its rapid growth rate at the time, and its easy access from other nearby highways. At the time this store opened more Family Mart locations were planned for South Florida, but that grand expansion in the area never happened. Family Mart opened a second South Florida store in West Palm Beach shortly after this one opened, but after that Family Mart decided to focus all their efforts on expanding into the Tampa Bay area and Western Florida instead. I was actually surprised to learn this location in Tamarac was the first Family Mart in Florida, as Family Mart became much more closely tied with the Tampa Bay area during the chain's time in Florida, so I always thought Family Mart started their Floridian expansion there. I guess Tampa Bay became much more attractive to Family Mart as they continued their research on where to build stores in Florida, as you'll find the remains of many old Family Mart stores in that area. Family Mart's Floridian office was also established in Clearwater too, with South Florida becoming more of an afterthought during the chain's time in Florida. Near the end of Family Mart's time in Florida the company experimented once again with opening stores on the state's Atlantic Coast, getting a few projects off the ground in Brevard County as well as a second West Palm Beach location. However, most of those stores were either short-lived or never opened at all. Family Mart bowed out of Florida in 1987, citing mounting pressure from other competitors like Albertsons and Kroger's new Florida Choice stores, which were of a similar vein to Family Mart. Kroger was actually the one who bought all of the Floridian Family Mart stores from A&P, converting most of them to Florida Choice. However, Florida Choice was discontinued shortly thereafter in 1988, with all the company's stores being sold to other grocers. Kash n' Karry bought the largest chunk of Florida Choice's stores, including all of the Tampa Bay and West Coast stores. The Florida Choice stores along the East Coast and in Central Florida stores were bought piecemeal, with Albertsons purchasing the former Stuart Florida Choice and the old Tamarac Family Mart from Kroger. Florida Choice only had a brief stint here in Tamarac, opening in late 1987 and closing with the rest of the chain in mid-1988. Albertsons would be in place in this building by the beginning of 1989.

     Albertsons did very little to this building after taking it over in 1989. Since Family Mart was a complete rip-off of their own concept, I guess Albertsons was content with what they inherited. Albertsons #4381 ended up being the indirect replacement to Albertsons #4335 about a mile south of here, which closed in 1990 after the new #4381 stole most of the original location's business. In the early 2000's Albertsons did a complete overhaul to store #4381, upgrading it to the facade we see in these photos I found online from a long-gone real estate listing. Albertsons heavily remodeled this former Family Mart building into a Grocery Palace-style location during the remodel, based on the design of the facade. I don't know how elaborate the interior remodel was, but from the noticeable relocation of the liquor store and the closure of the old side entrance, Albertsons did dump a decent amount of money into this store and did some rearranging inside.

     Sadly, the elaborate early 2000's remodel wasn't for much, as the Tamarac Albertsons ended up closing on July 30, 2006, as part of a closing round following the breakup of the original Albertsons company. Shortly after Albertsons closed the left half of the building was subdivided for a new dd's Discounts store, a popular reuse for a number of former Floridian Albertsons stores that closed in the mid-2000's. dd's kept Albertsons' 2000's era facade during the conversion, giving us this really nice close-up shot of what the building would have looked like in Albertsons' later years. While the awnings and liquor store facade were added by Albertsons in the remodel, the striped concrete pattern on the building's main wall is a remnant from the Family Mart days. Originally the darker yellow stripes would have been home to river rock panels (in the vein of Albertsons' design - another way these Family Mart buildings were a complete rip-off of Albertsons' design), but those were stuccoed over in the remodel.

     This last older photo looks toward the former Albertsons space from the edge of the small shopping center it's located in. While none of the road signs mention it, the plaza's official name (to this day) is still Family Mart Shopping Center. Over 30 years after Family Mart left this site behind, the plaza still holds onto the name of its original anchor!

     Even with the arrival of Aldi come 2013 (who completely rebuilt their half of the facade), Albertsons' original facade continues to live on with dd's. It's a weird, somewhat lopsided, facade paring with the mash-up of old and new, but not the worst facade mash-up I've ever seen on a subdivided building.

    While not a standard early 2000's Albertsons design due to the blocky nature of it, plenty of Albertsons traits are still easily apparent in dd's facade, such as the grooved columns and the little square tile-like accents used. Considering how most of the funky Albertsons conversion stores have zero remnants left from either Albertsons or its prior tenant, I was happy to see this little bit of original facade got to survive here!

     We'll start our interior tour by taking a quick spin around dd's, then popping into Aldi next door before we finish. Here we're looking from Aldi toward dd's, with the small shopping center sticking out beyond that.

     dd's entryway occupies the original main entrance form Albertsons, dd's swapping out Albertsons set of sliding doors for two sets of manual doors. A very strong Grocery Palace-era feel still lingers here in front of dd's, with the original Albertsons architectural elements present in the facade. Albertsons' exit doors would have been located behind me, but all traces of those were covered over when Aldi remodeled their half of the building.

     Stepping inside dd's, it's a pretty standard dd's store. This view looks from the front entrance toward the back of the store. dd's rebuilt the interior of their space prior to moving in, removing any traces from Albertsons or Family Mart that would have remained in here.

     The (rather empty) wall we see here is the partition between dd's and Aldi.

     Due to the building's past, I'm not sure how the layout in here would have looked following the late 2000's remodel. With Family Mart's original layout, the bakery and deli would have been in the front left corner of the building, with produce following on the store's left side. I don't know how much that was tweaked following the remodel, but that's how the building would have been arranged when first built. The photo above was taken from the back left corner of the building, looking toward the front.

     I do have a tour of a mostly original Family Mart store to post in the future, which should hopefully clear up any questions about those. Knowing Family Mart was a knock-off of Albertsons clears up a lot about the design of those stores, and when we tour that mostly original one, those similarities will start to become more apparent. Anyway, here's a look across dd's from the left side of the building toward the partition wall. Using the original layout, I'd have been standing in the produce department had this photo been taken 30 years ago.

     One last photo from the inside of dd's, looking across the salesfloor.

     Back outside, here's a look toward the far left side of the building. The original Family Mart facade design is still apparent here, just minus the original river rock.

     From dd's, we'll make our way to the other side of the building for a look at Aldi.

     All of Aldi's facade is new following their arrival to the building around 2013. Since that was the case, everything from Albertsons and Family Mart was wiped away on the front of this half of the building to conform it with Aldi's standard design.

     Aldi's entrance is on the front right corner of the building, where Albertsons' early 2000's liquor store entrance was located (and visible in the older photos at the beginning of this post). Prior to the early 2000's, the liquor store would have been tucked into a small space off the building's side entrance, designed in a very Albertsons-like manner.

     Inside we find the usual modern Aldi fare. This location received the recent decor upgrade, which I'm a fan of.

     The decor for the wine and beer wall is quite nice. Most of the Aldi stores near me keep wine and beer along one of the inner aisles, so seeing the deluxe wall decor for this department isn't something I get to see often. The building's side entrance would have originally been located to my right in this general area, but was closed off in Albertsons's early 2000's remodel in order to expand and relocate the liquor store. Aldi absorbed the former liquor store space into their store, so there's no trace of the liquor store here anymore.

     Here's a look across the back wall of Aldi. The original Family Mart floorplan would have had the pharmacy located here in the back right corner of the building. I have a feeling Albertsons moved the pharmacy from that location in the early 2000's remodel, as that was a common move Albertsons made during that time in their older stores (as Albertsons' oldest stores also placed the pharmacies in the back of the building).

     Since Aldi was unable to install an open warehouse ceiling in this store during the remodel, the old drop ceiling was retained, but the ceiling tiles were painted gray. The gray ceiling really enhances the overall look of the store, complimenting the rest of the decor.

     The second to last aisle is home to the famous "Aldi Finds" department, with a small refrigerated cooler occupying a portion of the aisle behind me.

     Dairy and frozen occupy the wall space on the left side of the building. Aldi has a stockroom behind those coolers, which separates their salesfloor from dd's half of the building.

     A rather nice photo of Aldi's check lanes on this quiet weekday morning...

     Beyond the check lanes is the entrance, taking us full circle around this side of the store. Family Mart's customer service desk was located in the building's front right corner, although I'm sure that placement was also changed in Albertsons' early 2000's remodel.

     And out we go to finish off the last little bit of our tour of former Albertsons #4381.

     While the entire front of Aldi was rebuilt when they moved in, I do happen to see something interesting on the right side of the building here...

     Where the concrete sidewalk narrows heading toward the back of the building signifies where the old side entrance was, the only noticeable marking of where that used to be. However, beyond that...

     What do we find but some more original Family Mart striping! You can also see a faint marking from where the original liquor store window was filled in too, to the left of the bottom stripe. It's not much, but it's still fun to find these small traces of grocers long gone still hanging around today.

    And with that, we've completed our ground coverage of former Albertsons #4381! Now that we've finished that, let's go up high for our usual dose of satellite imagery, starting off with some Bird's Eye aerial images courtesy of Bing Maps:


Right Side


Left Side - It appears the original river rock walls from Family Mart survived back here, hidden behind the rest of the shopping center. I didn't know about the original wall back here until I saw this image putting together the post, or else I would have popped back here and checked it out.

     And now for some historic aerial images, courtesy of Google Earth and

Albertsons #4381 - 1999 - The building in its original Family Mart form. From when Albertsons opened in 1989 until 2000 or so, the building would have looked like this on the outside, with the early 2000's remodel severely reconfiguring the facade and possibly the interior from its mostly original Family Mart form.

Future Albertsons #4381 - 1984 - When Family Mart was still here.

Future Albertsons #4381 - 1980 - Family Mart was still very new here.

Future Albertsons #4381 - 1969 - Nothing was here yet, not even the roads.

     Interestingly, the intersection of North University Drive and West McNab Road was once home to all three of Florida's major grocery chains - however, the three never co-existed at the same time. Even more interestingly, Winn-Dixie was the one who lasted the longest at this intersection, and Publix was the first to bow out in 1986 (not what you were expecting - right?). Publix and Family Mart co-existed and so did Winn-Dixie and Albertsons, but we didn't have the Floridian trifecta here all at once. Now that we've seen the former Albertsons store, let's jump around to the other sides of this intersection, starting with the former Winn-Dixie store:

Winn-Dixie #326
7015 North University Drive, Tamarac, FL

     Winn-Dixie opened this store in 1999 as a late-era Marketplace location, and was the last of the big 3 Floridian grocers to appear on this corner. I wouldn't be surprised if Winn-Dixie's big new store opening here spurred Albertsons to do the major remodel to their existing store across the street only a year later, as this was the premier Winn-Dixie design at the time. Winn-Dixie did a very cheap Transformational remodel to this store around 2012-2013, leaving behind many relics from the building's Marketplace past. The dressed-up facade is a remnant from the cheap Transformational remodel as well. What's really weird about this store is photos posted to Google from mid-late 2017 appear to show the store began a remodel to Down Down, but the remodel was aborted. The photos (an example of which can be seen here) show the walls were stripped of their Transformational decor and whitewashed, with a red stripe below the white walls. I've never seen anything like that before, or seen Winn-Dixie give up on a remodel part way through. Winn-Dixie ditching the remodel was definitely a sign of things to come, as the North University Drive Winn-Dixie was closed as part of SEG's 2018 bankruptcy closure round.

     The Winn-Dixie building was sitting completely vacant during my visit, however, I have found a recent listing online showing that Bravo Supermarket has leased the left half of the old Winn-Dixie for a new store, the rest of the building still available for rent. It will be interesting to see what Bravo does to their half of the space, as their conversions sometimes leave a lot behind from previous tenants.

     Now that we've seen both the former Albertsons and former Winn-Dixie store, next we'll take a look at the former Publix that once called this corner home. However, for coverage of the former Publix store, you're going to have to come back in two weeks to see that! The old Publix was interesting enough to warrant its own post, so rather than me making this a really long post I decided to separate out the Publix set into a post of its own. So come back in two weeks to see what's going on at the old Publix building, as it's quite the interesting conversion, that's for sure!

So until the next post,

The Albertsons Florida Blogger


  1. This is a Krogertsons of a different kind! The Family Mart name reminds me a bit of Fed Mart and also more so of the old Kroger Family Center stores that we had in Houston. They were kind of an early Kroger Marketplace/Fred Meyer type store with clothing, automotive items, and so forth. Kroger gave up on the proto-supercenters in the 1980s only to return to the concept later on in part by buying out Fred Meyer. There are still some old Kroger Family Center stores in the eastern part of the Houston area and in East Texas which were converted into regular Kroger stores. Here is one in industrial east Houston suburb of Baytown which most certainly does not look like the average Kroger:

    Here's a Kroger Family Center ad for Christmas toys in 1979 (it actually continues on for a few pages). There are a few strange things of note here. One, notice how Kroger is repeatedly referring to themselves as 'Kroger's' in the ad. I'm sure Retail Retell will be gasping about that! I suppose Kroger was having an identity crisis back then, lol. Also notice the toy whose maker's logo looks just like the Target logo! Finally, this ad has a listing of Texas and Louisiana Kroger Family Centers at the time (which might have been all of them in the country at that time, I'm not sure). Link:

    The concept of a plagiarized Albertsons is rather interesting! It does show how the Skaggs-Albertsons/Albertsons model was rather revolutionary at the time. I'm sure shoppers in Dallas knew this, but by the time Albertsons came to Houston, about the only thing revolutionary they had was their circular turntable 'conveyor belts'. Well, there was Grocery Palace later on I suppose!

    Once again, I must say that this Florida Aldi looks quite different from our usual Aldis. This one looks more spacious with more spaced out aisles and a drop ceiling to make the store look brighter than our very dark looking stores. This Aldi looks like an upgrade over our Aldis, but maybe this helps explain some of the success that Aldi has in Florida. It's not that Aldi isn't a success here, but they seem like a grocer nobody really talks about here in town. Aldi might be more useful in Florida to help combat against Publix and Winn-Dixie's very high prices.

    On the topic of low prices, I've never actually been to a dd's before, but we certainly do have them here. It does not appear that I am missing much by not shopping there. The idea of a downmarket Ross seems almost hard to believe. It's possible for something to be downmarket from Ross and not be one of those Amazon returned item stores? I guess so! That said, the dd's in your post looks better organized and less picked over than most of the Rosses I've seen around here so at least they have that going for them.

    1. Kroger only had 9 months or so with this building, so I doubt they had much time to change a whole lot around. Family Mart and Albertsons are definitely more grocery stores than anything, not really trying to be a true supercenter but more of a "grocery store with a little more to offer". Albertsons and Family Mart never sold clothing as far as I'm aware, and instead offered small (but on the larger side for a supermarket) automotive, electronics, and pharmacy departments. Kroger Family Center seemed to skew more toward being something like a Fred Meyer than Family Mart/Albertsons, as that old Kroger Family Center store looks to be the size of a Kmart! I know Kroger runs some large 100,000+ sqft. stores these days, but that must have been a crazy big grocery store back when it first opened!

      I don't know enough about Kroger to know how far beyond TX/LA the Family Centers went (if at all), but much like how Family Mart store the concept from Albertsons, they could very well have stolen their name from Kroger's concept! The "Kroger's" thing is weird, but maybe they were just trying to make some memorable marketing material based on what a lot of people tend to call the stores on their own (even though is isn't really the correct name of the store). Target probably wasn't large enough at the time that ad was printed to care if a company had a similar logo, but these days someone using that logo would certainly get in trouble from them!

      I wonder if Albertsons tried entering Houston at the same time as they did Dallas, if they'd have fared better. I know a lot of grocery chains failed in Houston even back then, but who knows, back in the 1970's Albertsons was different enough to have been somewhat memorable, so maybe they would have lasted longer than the actual expansion into Houston did!

      Aldi has remodeled just about every one of their remaining Florida stores to the new design like we saw here, with only one that I know of that still has yet to adopt it. I know the new design is rolling out nationally, but maybe Florida was a priority market to roll out the new model to since the stores do really well here. The drop ceiling here is just a vestige of the building's age, and would have been ripped out in the last remodel if there was a way to.

      Pretty much every one of my experiences with dd's has been through photographing a former Albertsons store while on the road. I really don't know how the pricing compares to Ross, but the products the stores carry are pretty similar overall, just with different price stickers. dd's is probably a way for Ross to weed out some of the junkier product from their own namesake stores, and clear it out of their system faster. Like with Ross the dd's stores tend to vary a bit in cleanliness, but this one wasn't bad.

  2. A&P really dropped the ball over the years. While they were pushing out The Family Mart they still had hundreds of outdated stores that would never go anywhere for years. While this wasn't the last time Albertsons and A&P crossed paths with each other--A&P would buy Albertsons' stores when they left New Orleans in 2004...Albertsons almost bought A&P and its family of brands but ultimately went for about 80 stores or so that closed for a three-day reset.

    1. A&P was in decline for much of their last 50 years in operation, with better run competition squeezing out their outdated stores and lots of prototypes that didn't seem to stick (like "Future Store"). It was probably for the best Albertsons didn't buy A&P, even in the 1980's or 1990's when A&P had a larger footprint, as the company was in a downward spiral even then. A&P pulled out of New Orleans not long after buying those stores from Albertsons too, and I'm still amazed A&P kept that isolated New Orleans division for so long too.

  3. That's pretty bold for the A&P exec to admit Family Mart was a blatant ripoff of Albertsons! I guess it's fitting, then, that this location did indeed become an Albertsons in the end. That's also interesting that each of the big three Florida supermarket chains operated on this corner, but not all three at the same time! Very strange to see the aborted remodel at Winn-Dixie, and looking forward to the next post to see what all the Publix has to show us also...

    1. I was surprised he made such a bold confession too, but I guess you can't copyright or patent a supermarket format, so it's not like Albertsons could have legally come after A&P for any reason by him saying that. Even though these stores were a blatant rip-off, this was the only Floridian Family Mart that became an Albertsons, since Kash n' Karry snatched most of these buildings from Kroger. It would have been interesting to see what Albertsons did to this place following the conversion, but they were content to use the rip-off design nearly unaltered for 10 years after moving in! Certainly an interesting intersection, with all the strange supermarket stores to be found here.

  4. I find it crazy how the A&P executive blatantly called the Family Mart project "plagiarism"! It seems like stores will often come up with some excuse and not be that blunt.

    It's also funny how the plaza is still referred to as "Family Mart Shopping Center". I'm sure it doesn't help that the two anchors in the center are discount stores, but I've come across several Kmart centers which are still referred to as such. Just look at the address for this Food Lion!

    As some of the others mentioned too, I'm surprised how Winn-Dixie went through the effort to begin a remodel just to stop halfway. What a waste!

    1. I appreciate A&P's honesty, as I always thought the Family Mart buildings were weirdly reminiscent of Albertsons' buildings - now I know why! Still strange he was so blunt as to call Family Mart "plagarism", but I guess he felt if people liked Albertsons that much, that statement would entice people to try out Family Mart. That's funny Kmart's name lives on in the address of that Food Lion, and in a similar way, there's still a shopping center in Orlando with addresses on "Woolco Way" in reference to the strip's former anchor! See here:

  5. Yes, I remember this Albertsons. When I lived in South Florida, I passed by it many times in my childhood. I did go inside it one time in the late 90s…and I got a little tidbit of information for you…it had the multicolored “transformational market decor, but the lettering was in a different font (Bauhaus 93) that the other Albertsons locations. I actually did see the progress when they were renovating the store too…they did leave half of the river rock bands on the side of the building (where Aldi is now) intact when they remodeled (this is probably why there is still kind of a remnant of it present)

    As for that Winn Dixie across the street, I remember when they were building it and it just opened.

    1. That's very interesting you got to see the inside of this Albertsons in its original form! The colorful transition market decor is right for a 1989 opening, but the Bauhaus 93 font must have been the product from an older/rarer version. This interior photo of Family Mart shows plain all-caps text on the walls (, so the wall signs weren't a carry over from them, and Kroger's Bauhaus decor was long retired by 1989, so it had to be Albertsons who installed those signs. Very interesting information, and it's always nice to hear from people who actually got to experience these stores in person!

  6. It looks like this store did very good business, at least until about the early 2000's when they did that remodel; trying to redeem themselves. It would have been very interesting to have been able to visit here in January 1989 then this Family Mart/ Florida Choice reopened as Albertsons. I know from that one Family Mart interior photo I found from the newspapers, that Family Mart's interior decor was pretty blah.
    During the Late 80's, to even the very early 90's, Albertsons was experimenting with that "colorful transition market' decor with the wooden borders around a color scheme for each department.

    Looking at those ceiling tiles and track lighting in your photos from the DD's side of the store, you would never have been able to distinguish between if this place had always been an Albertsons or started out as a Family Mart (not knowing either's history), because the early skaggs and trapezoid Albertsons stores all had that look. Apparently those guys at A&P were very interested in mirroring their Family Mart stores after Albertsons. That is an interesting bit of information that I had not realized prior to you sharing this post. Makes a lot of sense now though! Also, it is amazing at how long that Family Mart in North Fort Myers has been abandoned without being altered! (Hope I didn't jinx that one!).

    1. It seems like this store did somewhat well to get as extensive of a remodel as it did in 2000, but maybe Winn-Dixie ended up pulling to much business from Albertsons after they opened, along with all the other factors plaguing the company in Florida at the time. If Albertsons was experimenting a lot with the colorful transition market decor, then it makes sense the signs were in a different font here, as explained by Anonymous in the comment above. Family Mart's decor was pretty bland compared to what Albertsons was using for decor at the time.

      I think Albertsons changed quite a bit inside the building during that remodel, if the changes to the exterior are any indication. Finding that admission by A&P that Family Mart was a rip-off of Albertsons makes a lot of sense, as the buildings were really similar to each other, so now we know why! The North Fort Myers ex-Family Mart is still there too (last I know), but sadly, even though the exterior is still pristine and original, the interior was fully gutted at some point.

    2. Yes. That Fort Myers Family Mart/ Kash n’ Karry building was home to a Flea Market for a few years. I went in there some 20 years ago and it still had what appeared to be 90s K n’ K department signage still on the walls. I remember seeing a commercial real estate listing for it and from what I remember, it was built in 1985.

    3. I do remember that North Fort Myers Family Mart/ Kash n’Karry. It was home to a Flea Market some 20 years ago. I went inside it once and it had what appeared to be 90s K n’K department signage. I saw a commercial real estate listing for this building and from what I remember, it was built in 1985

  7. I think the Early 2000s remodel made the store look identical to Tupelo
