Plasti-Line Store Signs

This ad, from a 1977 Progressive Grocer magazine, immediately caught my eye. Of course it was due to the great 7-Eleven sign, reminding me of the many Slurpees I've downed over the years.


But what really grabbed me as I scanned the page was the sign for "Hop-in Food Stores" with the super rabbit logo. I hadn't heard of Hop-in before, but would assume it to be a line of convenience stores. If anyone knows of these, please let me know. It's a great name and mascot for such a store.


And we can't forget the A&P sign too!


Plasti-Line was the maker of these and many other signs of the times back then. They are from Knoxville, Tennessee.
