You can spot this former Food Fair a mile away with its still-intact tower! The 19,000 square foot building was originally the Food Fair of the Parkway Shopping Center, closing by the 1970s. The mall later had a different supermarket tenant, but the store was short-lived and the mall is now without any supermarket anchor -- or any anchor, really, for such a large strip mall. A Redner's and a GIANT remain in the area, along with an independent around a mile east where we're headed on Monday on The Independent Edition!
