Rogers Friendly Markets

So - Rogers Friendly Markets - 'memba them? Not sure which year this ad is from but almost everything on the page looks familiar.

The milk cartoon - the light blue and white stripes - almost like I can reach out and touch 'em.

Old South Orange Juice - they still make that stuff?

And what year did they drop the "Posh" from "Puffs"?

i would think the early 80's. when i started buying puffs there wasnt a posh in front of it. in fact i had forgotten about it until this day.

I remember a Rogers Market on Fairfield near Packard Park.

It was near the Lutheran Hosptial which according to recent imagery has been demolished.

Haven't been back to Ft Wayne since the 70s.
