I love the GAF film display, that is really cool.
Oh and 1973 was almost 40 years ago, a lot has happened in that time, but I believe that the basic concept of the metal and glass case, and the steel shelf painted white only date from the 1960's and don't appear to be changing soon so aside from the things displayed, stores have not changed all that much in that time.
My first real job was working in the Camera Department of A&S in Hempstead.
My first sale was a Minolta XG-1, with a 35mm, 50mm, 135mm lens.
And four rolls of Kodachrome 64 with mailers, to Mr. Archer.
Second sale was an AE-1, lost track after that.
Don't it always seem to go, That you don't know what you've got, Till it's gone ...

I worked at this Camera Store for a while and they even had a darkroom section with all the Kodak darkroom supplies. This was in a department store but they gave the Camera Shop the ability to stock whatever they thought would sell. Everyone new this was the place to get their photo supplies at a discount and they sold quite a bit of photo supplies that other stores did not stock. I still have a GAF slide projector like the ones on the shelf in the back.
