Our second store here in Butler is a 60s-era Centennial that's been extensively renovated and subdivided. The A&P building, which appears to have been expanded, is actually a barrel-roof structure. And today, we're also visiting a small store in downtown Butler as well as a Stop & Shop right over into Kinnelon. Now by the way, I am aware that these are not in the immediate Parsippany and Great Piece Meadows area as I promised at the top of the post, but we are just doing one brief detour day today before heading down into Boonton tomorrow for two stores on The Market Report and one on Grocery Archaeology!
This A&P opened on April 26, 1960. The original Centennial building (that was/is the barrel-roof structure) was expanded in the early-1970s. Though I could not ascertain an exact closing date, it appears that the A&P closed in the early part of 1999. The exterior renovations to the former A&P were completed no later than June 2001.ReplyDelete
While researching this store's history, one interesting thing I learned was that the shopping center itself is located in Kinnelon, yet its parking lot is in Butler.
Thanks for the history!Delete
