Acme is everywhere in SouthEastern PA, all throughout NJ, and DE. I even saw a few that will still operating in rural MD (still using the 80's Acme logo in very old buildings). They did used to have more locations, but they closed a lot of them, especially ones in Philadelphia that were in older buildings.

They were bought by Albertsons in 1999/2000. The name of Acme's previous owner was "American Stores", which owned Osco/Jewel, SavOn (a west-coast Rx chain like Walgreens), and Lucky (west coast supermarket chain that were converted to the Albertson's name). Albertson's just recently bought Shaw's.

Okay, let me tell you a little bit about this Acme. It opened in 1951 in Lambertville New Jersey, just two blocks from the Delaware River in a small neighborhood near a playground and a mountain. It was so historical inside. Great store. Had four isles, never had been remodeled. It was great in there. They had the old automatic doors that I love that open by air. Very sadly Acme closed the store in 1999. Devistating. In 2001, Lombartio's opened there, and independent supermarket, but it closed in 2002. The building just sits abandon now. This picture was taken during the 80's.

Albertson's is about to be sold so it is sort of a mystery right now what will happen to Acme.

I remember these. This is an old Acme cart from the 70's. As a kid I would go do grocery shopping when my parents couldn't go and I would just walk one of these carts home with me, take it in the garage, unload the grocerys and walk it back. You couldn't do that today.:insane:

This is the Acme in Beach Haven, Nj.. The Acme is in the white circle. My summer beach house is in the blue circle on the left. Its kind of had to see because the house next door is bigger.

Albertson's is sold! Northeast stores go to Supervalu, free standing/shopping center Osco's and Sav-On's will go to CVS. Stores in CA, FL, and other Western states are going to some other investment group.

I just saw that on the PBS news two seconds ago. I thought Albertson's was doing fine.

MBZ321, where was the one in the picture you posted that you were unsure if it had closed or not? It looks just like the one in Lansdowne, PA, and if it is that one then it is closed.

Wow!  I loved going to the store each week when I was a kid and have fond memories of watching the groceries loaded into the  boxes and then run outside on the conveyor belts.  You would pay and get the numbered tickets for the boxes, go get your car and drive up to the store and they would load the boxes in the back of your car.  Talk about service with a smile!

Many thanks to all of you who found and posted the old pictures!

This store is outside of East Brunswick, NJ - off Route 18 via Rues Lane - probably actually in another town, but it hard to tell in that area.

Looks newer, but may be a replacement for another store - the plaza is kind of odd in that you can't even see this store if you come in at the opposite end!

Could you tell me where this store is (or was) located?  It looks just like the former Acme store near me in Canton, NY.  It was an Acme until 1979.  Later a Chicago Markets then Super Duper, it is now occupied by the Rex Hardware store.

I have no idea where that specific store was located, but that was the standard  Acme prototype was throughout the 60's and maybe early 70's. and Acme did stretch into New York at one time. The newer car in the picture seems to date the picture to the year 2000+

Here's a former Acme in Maryland that closed down a few years ago. There is also a closed Roy Rogers in the center that I ate at about 5 years ago when the Acme was still open.

I was listening to the an inernet radio show last night and they said a guy who works on the Howard Stern Show on Sirius Satellite Radio works for an ACME in the Philly area. His name is "Mark the Bagger."

This is the former Acme Market in Gouverneur.  It was downtown at 137 East Main Street.  It was built in 1950 as a Market Basket, which I believe was owned by Acme.  It later took the Acme name and closed in 1971.  I found this pic online courtesy of the Gouverneur Tribune-Press newspaper, which published the photo just before the store went out of business.  After Acme closed, there were a couple of discount stores in this building before it became a mini mall in 1977.
