Frog Stores


This lurid, almost Lovecraftian corporate icon could be found in the year 1950 in Chuck Shepherd's own Florida stomping grounds. Proof that even 60-some years ago, the F-State was weird.

This link will take you close to the original ad, but you will have to scroll right for another page or so.

Coffee was only 69cents a pound.. They can call themselves whatever they want!

It looks like "Frog Stores" was a group of individually owned markets banned together to compete with A&P, etc.

Nothing wrong with that icon. "FROG" stood for "Florida Retail Owned Grocers" - I think it's actually quite clever.
