Summary

The storeroom at 24 W. Potomac St looks familiar to baby boomers because it was the future home of Roelke's Market in the 1960s. It has for many years been the home of Past & Present Antiques.

This post World War II photograph was taken in the original Acme Supermarket (first branded the American Store) in the Cincotta Building. Notice the "self service" messages as this was a relatively new concept in those days as shoppers had been used to asking clerks to pull merchandise down from tall shelves on hooks.

This was the first supermarket in Brunswick. It later moved to a more modern location on New Addition.

On the left is Leonard Weedy, who was a butcher in different markets around town for years, Elsie Cooper, Store Manager, and 2 salesmen.

JoEllen Morsberger: Fisher My Mom talked of stocking shelves at the Acme Store in the new location and mentioned there was an A&P across the street from old location.
