Our first Rockland County former supermarket is not the more exciting of the two. This is a barrel-roof Centennial store that has been disguised by a new facade, but you can still see the original facade behind it, with all Centennial elements removed. It's in the center of New City, which is certainly not a large city, but does have a Grand Union-turned-DeCicco Family Markets in the next strip mall north on Main Street and then a large ShopRite a little farther north than that. This 14,000 square foot store likely competed with the Grand Union next door for many years, though both are now gone. This photo was taken from the parking lot of Back to Earth Natural Foods, which is next door and which we'll see tomorrow on The Independent Edition!
