Scenes from an A&P Supermarket Opening, Atlanta, 1965

Courtesy the Georgia State University Library collection comes this group of neat images showing scenes from the opening of an A&P supermarket in the Williamsburg Village shopping center, located in Atlanta, Georgia. These were taken on May 12, 1965 and showcase the grocery giant’s still-new Centennial style, first rolled out in 1959. The affair is complete with men dressed in 18th century Colonial American garb.

The opening was covered by Atlanta radio station WGST, as seen in the picture with their mobile news vehicle.
