Don't have a photo of the plaza it's self, but here's a photo of the water tower behind it:

Yeah. That belonged to Pratt & Whitney Aircraft which was located on Aircraft Road. They closed both plants in 93 or 95. The other is on Newell Street and is now Yarde Metals. The new owners of The P&W building in Aircraft Road told the town last year they would knock down that eyesore, but it's still there.

In other words, all Connecticut residents who do not live in Hartford
are now subsidizing the irresponsible spendthrifts who run that city.

Eventually this will bankrupt the entire state of Connecticut.
Apparently under the US Constitution states cannot declare bankruptcy
so that will really put us into uncharted territory.

The state isn't allowing Hartford to go Bankrupt, which costs millions of dollars that should really go somewhere else more useful. For most people who don't live in Hartford, or the few surrounding towns, Hartford is really a money sucker.

Seymour is still there sitting empty. The former member who started this thread visited there earlier this year. (We also got together and visited the empty HQ back in January). The former member and I got into an online fight and when I blocked him on Facebook and Twitter I deleted his account here. When we worked out our differences I discovered there was no way to restore his account and posts here. Yes I am ashamed of what I did. And admit it was an abuse of my powers as an admin on this site. Both Jon (another Admin) and Chris (the owner of the site) said there was no way to restore his account, posts, and pictures.

Anyway I'm hoping to get a job and with luck a car by Spring 2018 so hopefully I can go see Seymour for myself.

THE CALDOR RAINBOW had a good locator, but it isn't updated, sadly.
If my research is correct for vacant Ames stores,

(See below)

There is probably also more. Ames was in quite a few states.
Little update for you:
CT:
-Seymour (828 Derby Ave.)
-East Hartford (5 Main St.) (Partially PetSmart) Michael's opened up along with a Olympia Sports in that area.
-Rocky Hill Corp. Offices (2418 Main St.)

MA:
-Agawam (151 Springfield St.) (SIGN) I have no clue what you're talking about, the sign has been gone since the late-2000s

NY:
-Painted Post (100 Victory Hwy.) While I can't tell for sure, it looks like most of the space has been carved up into multiple stores.

This is based off of Google Street View, so Seymour could have fallen since November 2015.

But here's some hope, the East Providence Ames still looks closed as of October 2016.

Wow that's a big change in Maine...  Rite Aid was certainly the largest pharmacy chain in the state, with CVS and Walgreens far behind.
In a relatively small market like Norway-South Paris there's a huge freestanding Walgreens and Rite Aid within walking distance. I'm surprised that the FTC didn't require divestitures in Maine where Rite Aid was the dominant drug store chain (acquiring LaVerdiere's in 1994 played a key role in that.)

Further down in the article it says Walgreens is no longer buying 34 stores in NJ, 13 in CT, or 184 in NY; that accounts for the majority of them.  

That part was added as part of an update. Coupons In The News has the new store count by state:
http://couponsinthenews.com/2017/06/29/what-will-happen-to-your-rite-aid-store-the-latest-list/

Interesting that the lonely remaining Rite Aid store in Maine that was listed in the original deal also goes to Walgreens in the approved store sale list. I guess standalone drug store competition in the Pine Tree State doesn't matter to the FTC.

Would Acme be in a position to assume the former Pathmark building in Cherry Hill, 989 Church Road, Cherry Hill, NJ, 08002?

That site along with half of the shopping center would need rehabilitation, so it isn't move-in ready, but it shouldn't be a huge endeavor.


Just an update on this shopping center. It's getting the long needed re-hab. Big Lots moved into a new space, and At Home is replacing the old Pathmark. The parking lot was re-paved and the entire side that looked drab got completely renovated.

On another note, the Kmart of Moorestown, NJ is closing. There is an Acme which is on Kings Highway in Maple Shade just walking distance from the Kmart which is closing.
http://acmestyleblog.blogspot.com/search/label/NJ%3A%20Mapleshade

The Kmart faces a major road, Route 38, and is arguably a better site. The Acme anchors a traditional center, which would be a grocery anchored shopping center, but faces Kings Highway but a narrow stretch where it's one-lane each side. Kmart faces 38 and has Marshall's/Home Goods/Dollar Tree in the same center.

 I wonder if Acme would consider shifting to the Kmart location as it appears that Acme is opening new stores elsewhere. Acme was hammered hard and closed numerous sites in the southwest side of NJ, over the years, so I wonder if it will make strategic moves or just fall apart like Genuardi's, Pathmark, etc. atleast in the western South Jersey. By the Jersey Shore, it's pretty much Wegmans free, limited Aldi even, and ShopRite's are a bit lackluster that Acme can exist well.
