Colors might be influencing you--commercial decor follows trends just like fashion.
Burnt orange, harvest gold, and avocado green on faded videotape? 70s!
Turquoise and pink? 50s!
Black and white film? Old!

With something like "Scorpio". it is easy to see such as the baskets that would run on the wheeled trolley out in front of the store.

Have grocery stores changed that much over the decades so we know or is there something a bit more hidden.....that our trained minds pick up on?
No plastic - paperboard, glass and aluminum packaging.

A big clunky cash register that goes ding and ker-ching.

I spent the first six years of my employment years, (16 to 22) working for our local A&P Supermarket, just 2 blocks from home. 1972-1978. Just a few things of then vs now. I can honestly say A&P was 120% about the customer. Today...not so much. Back then, yes the stores were smaller, but what the local customers wanted, the store ordered. Our store tried to always have at least 3 choices of each type of item to choose from, often economy, med. priced and a higher grade if available. There were few items that didn't sell as there was no room for those. And yes the carts were smaller, the aisles wider and longer. Very different now. Customer care was off the charts then, now profit margins rule. Oh also, I learned how to tie a tie way back then as we were required to wear a dress shirt and tie at all times. Looking back those were fun times and I wish that kind of store operation was still around.

Oh one way on to see the difference of times on TV shows, look at the widths of the ties, and the hairstyles.

I noticed that some customers didn't pay for their shopping right away and the owners would enter each purchase in a book for them to pay later. To the rich it was an element of trust and appreciation, to the poor it was a surviving tool - they could pay when they got their paycheck and sometimes even get some food for free, especially for kids.
Then, the community ties were much stronger.

Yes, our little market gave a monthly bill to my father. I used to get snacks on my way home from school, and my dad told me to stop doing that, because it was adding to much to the bill.

But then we can look at it the other way: the days when women wore their freshly ironed house dresses to the store. You never say a women wearing uni sex clothes and most had their make up on and maybe even wore nylons as we called them
