The other Admin, Jon is supposed to be coming up to Connecticut this coming spring or summer to meet up with me. Mayhem will sure to follow us. LOL. Gonna visit the still vacant AMES HQ in Rocky Hill, the last vacant AMES in Connecticut located in Seymour, and going to hit up one of the 3 remaining K-MARTS in Connecticut. As a side trip we're probably going to hit Northern Mass and meet up with Chris the founder of the AMES Fan Club. ~ Brammy. New Email brammy82@mail.com

You have to admit though Jag, they didn't do too bad of a job giving the facade a much-needed update a few years ago when Tops opened.  Just compare that picture to the one's earlier on this post of the store in 1993.  It was REALLY looking rough.  Bon-Ton must do decent business at this store though to have kept it open all of these years.  Did you get any pics of the old Hengerer's/Sibley's/Bells/Quality across Sheridan Drive?

you bet. I made a whole thread on it. It's on the supermarket page (It's called "Quality Markets", obviously):roll:

I went in the sheridan bon-ton when I took the pics (I took some inside pics if you want me to post them) and it is SMALL. Very small, compared to their newer locations. It has the old-style ceiling too lol:D

Oh what the heck I'll post them. Here's the 1st floor. This place reminds me of a typical 50's dept. store.

Is this the location that has the basement?  I can't remember.  Are the stairs still there on the Delaware Avenue side of the store that take you to or from the second level to the outside entrance??

Yep, but the basement has been closed off. I believe the stairs are still there:roll:

The old Hens & Kelly/AM&A's/Bon-Ton store in the Northtown plaza closed down in 2007, it was the location of the Frightworld haunted house for the past few years. Now the old store has been gutted and it doesn't look like an old department store anymore.  :(

As for the former AM&A's/Bon-Ton in the Walden Galleria Mall that was closed and  demolished for a Regal movie theatre as part of the mall's expansion from 2006-2008. The Regal movie theatre opened in 2008.

I know this thread is deader than dirt, but I thought I would toss in that the Northtown location has been demolished to help build a new Whole Foods. The plaza itself has 3 tenants left out of 40 something spaces.

The Transitown Plaza location (TJMaxx/Former Carolina Furniture) looks just like it did 50 years ago. Little remodeling has been done to the building.

They're remodeling the old downtown location. The construction workers found old signs still hanging on the wall, which is cool. Great labelscar left from the AM&A's days.
