Original Tenant:  unknown Address:  1250 Park St, Parkville, Hartford, CT Opened:  unknown Closed:  unknown Later Tenants:  Save-A-Lot > Supermarket Coming Soon Photographed:  August 2020 Contributor:  Lars D. Our final Hartford store is a quick look at this former Save-A-Lot just up the street from the CTown which has closed and is now being prepared for the opening of an independent supermarket. The windows are fully papered over, so we unfortunately can't get a look inside. But the Save-A-Lot decals remain in the windows... ...but what we can find is a remaining cart corral... That wraps up our look at Hartford! Come back tomorrow to The Market Report for three stores in the eastern suburbs! UPDATE 10/29/20:  This is expected to open as a Key Food on 11/4/20.

Original Tenant:  Grand Union Address: 1844 US-6, Carmel, NY Opened:  1960s Closed:  unknown Later Tenants:  Key Food (2001-2004?) Photographed:  November 2018 So let's see if I can reconstruct the story of what happened here. This mall opened sometime in the 1960s anchored by a Grand Union at the west end and an Ames at the east end. When Grand Union went under in 2001, like so many other of their smaller locations in the southern Hudson Valley, it was sold to a Key Food operator. Key Food presumably didn't last long, closing by 2004. At some point, Hannaford either took over the GU/Key Food or simply moved into the department store. Given that the Grand Union building was only 23,000 square feet, it probably wouldn't have been too appealing for Hannaford. Hannaford opened in the former Ames location in 2008, but when Hannaford parent Delhaize merged with Stop & Shop parent Ahold in 2016, they sold the 62,000 square foot Hannaford to Tops Friendly Ma

Coming Soon!

Over the next two and a half weeks or so, we'll be wandering through the northern parts of Westchester County before crossing into Putnam County, the next county to the north. As we'll see, this area is mostly suburban with only one large city (Peekskill) and getting almost countryside-like as we head east towards the Connecticut border. Much of this area is also very affluent, especially along the train lines that lead into New York City. While the majority of coverage will be on  The Market Report  because most of the stores are chain stores, we'll also be seeing three independent stores on  The Independent Edition  and one former supermarket here. Some housekeeping notes... From now on, I won't be tagging these coming soon posts with the names of each town that we'll be covering in the group. Unfortunately, there are simply too many to fit in the tag section. I'll continue to tag them with the region and state. We're introducing for this group a ne
