Gallery: Throwback Thursday photos from Hy-Vee, Giant and more

Ice cream for 25 cents a quart, cigarettes sold at checkout — times sure have changed for the supermarket industry since these photos were taken.

SN asked retailers to take a trip down memory lane with retro photos of their stores. Click through the gallery to reminisce with Lunds & Byerly’s, Meijer, Roche Bros. and more.

Throwback Thursday is a popular trend on social media where users share old photos. Do you have #throwbackThursday photos of your store? Send them to Liz Webber at [email protected] and you could see them in an upcoming SN photo gallery!
