JIM: Hot deals in 1957 at Columbia's White Cash & Kroger Stores
THANKSGIVING 1957 - It seems like yesterday - it just 60 years ago, when members of the ACHS class of 1958 were juniors, - when Columbia's Square had a Kroger Supermarket, where Edward D.

In 1957, Kroger and the White Cash Market had these hot deals for those shopping for Thanksgiving dinner. For a close approximation of what an item would cost in today's dollars, multiply the price by 8.70.
(The next week, just in time to store all the leftovers, Jeffries Hardware offered the Model D800 "Big Family Size" Admiral refrigerator--a cavernous 7.3 cubic feet!--for the low, low price of $179.00. This price included a full-width freezer; the crisper, however, was optional. And, for the first time, these beauties were available in colors other than white--Primrose Yellow, Shell Pink, and Sea Mist Green--at no additional charge.) - JIM
