What chain stores in the U.S. post bilingual or trilingual signs inside stores?

The ones' I could think of are the Home Depot, Lowe's, and Ikea (All have English/Spanish signs, but Home Depot also offers French for self check-out.)
I haven't seen any grocery stores yet posting any bilingual signs at all.

PS! I'm not talking about product/package label because it is usually written in English, French, and Spanish most often due to NAFTA.

Thanks for sharing!

The local Wal-Marts have bilingual signage, despite being in an area with virtually no Hispanics.

Central coastal California, not too far from Salinas which is where the stores I am talking about are.

I was in a Harris Teeter in Arlington, VA last week and it had bilingual signs. I'm moving back to the DC area and several business have bi and tri lingual signs.
