Retro Foodliner Sign

One of my favorite neon/flasher signs in Indiana. If your a letterhead or a sign fan make sure to at least drive by this surviving sign from years past.

Old Marsh Foodliner sign

The reason this sign looks old is because it IS old. The sign formerly sat in front of the Marsh grocery store on E. Market St, just past S. Hickory St. in a little shopping center, with a Hooks Drugstore and a Harvey's 5 and dime.

Since I lived only 2 blocks away, (1982-1992) I used to shop at this grocery almost daily, and remember it well. It was your original "Supermarket" from the 1950's, with about 10 or 12 aisles, produce along the outer side and butcher in the back. 2 or 3 check-outs, with no bar code scanner. I believe the old store closed in 1992, when the new store was built at its present S. Buffalo at Winona Sts location.

Retro Foodliner Sign

This sign at the Marsh Supermarket in Warsaw, Indiana has a vintage feel to it. I don't know how old the sign actually is, but "Foodliner" sounds very retro. We pass it every time we travel from Mishawaka, Indiana to visit our daughter at school in Muncie, Indiana, and it just looks cool!

Nice enough, but did you happen to notice whether the groceries inside were stacked to resemble an ocean liner? Could make all the difference....
