    The Ann Page tin sports a zip code, but no barcode, so I'm assuming that it's from no later than the mid 60s. "Ann Page" was the name of the A&P's storebrand products. The A&P chain was defunct for awhile, but about a decade ago was reborn as "SuperSaver".

    "Ideal" was the Acme Markets storebrands' name. This one has neither a zip code nor barcode on it. With these absences, I'm having a hard dating this item.

    Similar to the A&P's plight, Acme Markets closed up shop for a while, but a new, smaller chain of Acmes has been resurrected.

      I bet those Red Owl ones are cool. do have any?
    8. Ted_Straub Ted_Straub, 5 years ago
      Thanks, Sean…no, I don't have any Red Owl ones (yet). But I'm always looking, and I'll let you know when I discover them.

      Sometimes, it seems that the the real challenge is in the hunt :)
