Mr. Grocer’s

Does anyone have a picture of Mr. Grocer’s or an old bag with the logo? I wanted to scan it for an art project. But either way…
That was a strange food store, I just remember there being a basement were you could drop things (cans or bottles I’m assuming) down…let me tell you, for me, as a kid that was the stuff of dreams.
I also remember my dad buying a loaf of bread there to feed the swans at the Mall. I remember the swans all crowding around me to get the piece of bread, some of the birds were taller than I was. I called to my dad for help, and he tossed me the rest of the loaf of bread, driving the birds even crazier. I have to admit I probably would have found it funny myself.
