History

Acme Fresh Market was responsible for two subsidiary stores: Click, a department store and grocery store under one roof, and Y-Mart (derived from Youngfellow Pharmacy), a chain of pharmacy/convenience stores similar to Walgreens. In the mid 1990s, the Click stores were renamed Acme Supercenters. The Y-Mart stores were re-named Acme Express. By the late 1990s, the Acme Supercenters were closed, as part of the company's effort to close smaller stores and renovate the remaining locations into the rebranded Acme Fresh Market.
