Schmidt's Grocery sign

John Baird's gotta nice night version.

 

Schmidt's Grocery in Okemos, Michigan closed in the 1980s, I believe. Then a Barnes & Noble moved in. They replaced the part of the freestanding sign out front that said Schmidt's but kept the shopping lady on top. At night, her legs appear to move. Around five years ago, B&N moved into a vacant department store building in neighboring East Lansing and a sports shoe store, Playmakers, moved into the Schmidt's space.

 

Update: Flickr member profkaren has a photo from 1989 when it was still Schmidt's.
