Red & White is a chain of independently owned and operated food stores operating in the United States. While it has been supplanted by supermarket chains in many of its locations, its signature red dot logo with the words Red & White can still be found on small independent grocers in many states. via wikipedia 


Red & White store owned by FLICKER member Seattle rainscreen's Grandfather in Meadville, Pa.  A guess from family is that this photo dates from the mid to late 1940's.
