Also, you don't have actual trailers as in "tractor-trailers" laying around do you?

AMF Hogan isn't a store.  It was a division of the company AMF (American Metal & Foundry, or, to the bowling guys, Another Major F***-Up), most famous for their bowling equipment.

Yes they are actual trailers, and AMF operates bowling alleys/bars. It is a notable company. AMF Hogan things are valuable because they divested Hogan in 1984 and had owned it since 1960.

Man, I'd really like to see that Kmart cart, those Jamesway carts, those Esso/Getty gas pumps, and the Bradlees trailer. Do you have a camera? Can you take pics of them, and upload them here?

One of my friends on Flickr, has a pic of a can of Acme Ideal Orange Juice.

Actually, this post should go in shopping cart sightings. The only things on this list I really have are:
a Woolworth bag
a Two Guys sticker
a Zayre sticker
a Geo logo
a Plymouth keychain (with the rare logo)
AMF Hogan box
Lechters sign
Eckerd clippers

Hmm... I have some Hills stuff, I think some price stickers and a toy truck. Might have some Ames stuff, I'm not sure. We have a really old Mongtomery Ward television, probably some more old Ward's appliances, as my parents used to work there a long time ago.

I don't know exactly what I have, as a lot of it is packed up in boxes, but I do have a good number of Shaw's produce signs (they had that 'fake chalkboard' sort of look) that were replaced during a remodel early this decade.

I hope I still have them, at least -- they've been in my parents' garage for a good chunk of time, so hopefully they didn't get thrown out. :(

I have a bunch of other items as well, including a fair amount of Shaw's stuff, but as I said I am not sure exactly what.

Found an old Sonic game at a local antique mall, I only paid $5 for it. Still in shrink wrap, with Ames price tag $19.99. I don't own a Game Gear, but even if I did I doubt I'd open it.
