Groceries weren’t always displayed on such orderly, open-access shelving. Before expansive supermarkets with wide aisles became common, goods were located behind a counter and retrieved by a store clerk upon request. The grocery shopping popular today has a name: self-service. Publix Supermarkets showcased their wide aisles and a self-service dairy case by driving a shopper around a new store in a tiny car, circa 1957.
