The former Zayre department store... former Walmart now open as an Ocean State Job Lots in Hooksett, NH.
They are only using 1/3 of the store. The other 2/3 are being utilized for there stockroom. It's intersting to see that the giant round heater vents from the Zayre days are now very noticeable while shopping in the store. Probably because of the lower shelving units being used and lack of department/visual graphics hanging from the ceiling.

Looks like OSJL is either moving into the Shaw's or former Ames #0001 in Sturbridge!

Correct on both counts; it's diagonally across from The Center for Shopping (which currently has a lot of vacancies, by the way.)

I only know the area from my time going to watch the Vermont Mountaineers play the Sanford Mainers.

The new walmart is certainly bigger!

The Center for Shopping was where Ames had their 'new' store (the old Ames was in downtown Sanford that became Marsden, IIRC) and Shaw's. Across the street was Walmart, so did they move? just down 109 was the Weathervane Restaurant.

I think I'm correct...

The new Walmart is on the other side of the 4/109 intersection (which used to be a signaled four-way intersection but is now a roundabout) near the airport. The old Walmart is now OSJL, as noted earlier in this thread.

A roundabout? Jeez, The Center for Shopping was where Shaw's and Ames were at. The Old Ames in Sanford was a Marsden. Is the new Walmart where the manufactured Home place was?? In downtown Sanford was an old Jerry Lewis Theater and there was a Deering Ice Cream shop (like a friendly's).

They're opening their first Long Island location in North Babylon. If I remember correctly, it was a Island Recreational Pool Supply store and before that, Finast.

In addition to the new Poughkeepsie store (which is mentioned in the Grand Union post, as it is a built but never opened Grand Union Mega Save, their last concept before their bankruptcy), looking at the current flier I see this:

Now Open: N. Babylon (as mentioned above) & NORTH ADAMS, MA., 830 Curran Memorial Highway.

This North Adams store is their first in the Western (Berkshires) part of MA, which makes sense as they have lots of stores in MA as far east as the Springfield area and now a good string along Eastern NY (Ballston Spa south to Fishkill), so the Berkshire area would be a logical area to fill in between.

Based on the address, it looks like it is a (now former) WalMart store, which was built in the early 90's on the site of a drive in theater.  Apparently the Walmart has relocated a bit further South (1415 Curran Hwy), which (I think) is probably the site of a former plaza that had a Price Chopper and other stores (not sure what, as most of it was empty for years even before the PC left).

They opened a new Supercenter in nearby Thomaston last month. WMT had outgrown their old Rockland store which couldn't be expanded

Ocean State Job Lot purchased the rundown decrepit and long neglected Webster Square Plaza in Berlin, Connecticut where their store is located in a former Foodmart for $3.3 Million in early December 2013. Now it looks like they're going to be taking over the former vacant 60,000 A&P Super Foodmart.

"F" is Job Lot's current location in the plaza and it's shown here as vacant. "K" is the former A&P Super Foodmart, which is shown as Job Lot's location.

60,000 square feet is huge for a Job Lot store and nearly 3 times their existing store in the plaza!
