While most of us grew up with supermarkets and shopping malls already existing; some of us remember the family-run grocery stores where your options were often limited. Others might even have had the chance to grow their own food, but once general stores grew bigger and became more convenient, there was no way back. Still, the consumerist lifestyle as we know it didn't happen overnight, and we got where we are now gradually.
As the supermarket phenomenon began to gain traction, companies turned to advertising to appeal to a wider audience. This typical advertisement for the grand opening of a Piggly Wiggly highlights the store's low prices and emphasizes the freshness of their products. #miamiOH #SupermarketHistory
