Mystery Sign

I'm not sure if the drink Orange Crush is more of a regional thing but I'd never seen street signs for the soda before moving to Chicago. When I came across the above sign I was particularly fascinated by the fact that the 'grocery store' lacked a name--it was identified only by Orange Crush.

After doing a bit of digging, I've concluded that the sign is probably from the 1970s. Flicker user Afiler stumbled across a similar sign in Vancouver though the grocery store actually has a name (Quebec Grocery). In St. Paul, Afiler also found another Orange Crush sign like the one above, this time at a laundromat.
