Price check on lane 7, please." You cringe because you look up and realize that it's your lane and that you are going no where fast. You also realize that you are in the express lane with your heaping cart of everything. Do you stay or go? Then you see the part that reads, "cash express," and you know you're busted. All you have are checks. Off to lane 3 you head... Judging by the mod colors and design of this grocery store fixture, it was from the 70s adorning the colors of tangerine orange magenta red.
