Scott's On Decatur Road

When this supermarket on Fort Wayne's south side was opened in 1956, it was advertised as the largest grocery store in the country. Originally called Eavey's, it was bought by the Fort Wayne based Scott's Foods chain in the late 1960s.

In 2007, Kroger bought out Scott's, whose stores were located throughout northeast Indiana, including several Fort Wayne locations. Kroger closed the Decatur Road store, with its famous giant cornucopia sign, in January of 2009.

The store's abrupt closing upset a lot of Fort Wayne residents, who feared that the well known landmark would be demolished. As of 2012, the empty store and its iconic sign still stand, but there are no plans for it to be used for anything new in the foreseeable future. The store opened in a prosperous middle class area that has become an impoverished, high crime neighborhood in the intervening decades.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
