Speaking of food stores, I'm just old enough to remember sawdust on the floor in butcher shops--and pickle barrels. And the small selection of produce that expanded in summer. I remember when skirt steak was cheap coz nobody wanted it, eggs were often fertilized (had a red spot on the yolk, frozen vegetables weren't slathered in a sauce, milk was whole or skim and came in glass bottles with paper tops--and could be delivered to the insulated box by your door from the local dairy.
