A Good Sign: Met Food


I saw this small, old Met Food sign in Greenpoint. Kinda cute and bouncy, dontcha think? Probably their look in the 1970s, from the style of it.

I grew up in the Bronx, White Plains Rd and Gun Hill Rd, and there was a Met a couple of blocks away. One of my friends worked there after school as a cashier. Just found your blog, brought back memories. Thank you.

That's the sign! That goes back to probably the 60's and beyond, I remember that sign growing up in the Bronx in the 1950's.

Met Food is still around. They have 2200 stores now and we are one of their newest suppliers.
