The Grocery Store

Located on the 4900 block of Carpinteria Avenue where Lemos Pet Supply and Crushcakes Cafe now stand, The Grocery Store provided Carpinterians with a friendly, local market in the 1970s. The store moved into the space after Safeway relocated to Linden Avenue (where Smart & Final now operates).

Before a major renovation took place, the large building was home to Seaside Antiques Mall in the 1990, The Firm Athletic Club and Zooker’s Juice Bar in the 2000s.

After it was Safeway but before it was The Grocery Store,it was called HiLo Market for a while. I think the picture you used is either as Safeway or HiLo, as The Grocery Store had the doors moved around the corner by the parking lot.
