Vintage Point: Grocery store ribbon redux

Two grocery store ribbon cuttings, 55 years apart, both at 23300 Farmington Road. Fresh Thyme opened last Tuesday. The A&P opened February 15, 1961. Note the colonial costumes in the old photo, a nod to the A&P’s ad announcing the “New Early American Style Super Market”.
