A peculiar supermarket. Seeking info from someone familiar with supermarket business.

There's a supermarket called Ream's in the Salt Lake City area. It's a regular supermarket, and often has good prices on sale items, but the look of this place is especially UNinviting: not nearly as well-lit as more popular supermarkets, and just not the kind of place that you want to go in and see what's going on.

Does anyone have any info that would explain why a supermarket would want to make itself look like this? It would not take a lot of money to make the place more inviting, and I don't think it takes a genius to see there's something just "not right" about this place. That makes me think this look is very deliberate. Anyone have any info that would help me understand this? Thanks.
