A vanishing breed
With rue my heart is laden now that Jubilee Foods is closing. I am sorry for the many times I mocked out their little stressed-out manager and joked about how dirty the store was and complained about how you could not buy meat there without getting blood on your hands.
I mean, look at that tiled floor and that ice machine.
The checkout counters were the best of all. That red trim!
They were like that when I was a kid. Heck, they were probably like that when Leonard Pennario was a kid in Buffalo.
Another view of the checkout.
The meat counter stripped bare.
Tops is going to chew up this market and spit it out. All that red trim. Notice the red stripe on the floor and also along the meat counter. Observe the retro "Milk" sign on the far wall. And those classic fluorescent lights on the ceiling.
