The Bristol Plaza in Bristol, Ct was built in the 1960s and has been owned by Federal Realty investment trust since 1995. The plaza got a facade makeover after Stop & Shop built its new store where Bradlees used to be in 2004. The plaza consists of 4 buildings on one parcel of land and 2 buildings opposite the plaza on Route 6. This is one of most popular shopping centers in Bristol. http://www.federalrealty.com/properties/bristol/

I think you forgot Century Buffet in there, or did they close? The spaces next to the former CVS used to be Woolworth's. I remember both CVS and Woolworth's next to each other. I had been in both stores in addition to Bradlees and Stop and Shop (both old and new). I remember going to the Store Closing sale for Woolworth's in 1997 and the one for Bradlees around 2000/2001. Special memories.

Also, in Building #3, I remember some sort of toy store (they had a train set in the window I think) and there was also a men's clothing store called Raymond's. My dad used to get all of his clothes there. They custom fit you for everything. This was during the 90s.

I remember the plaza for it's speed bumps that had a walkway in the middle of them.

You're right Chris. I did forget Century Buffet. Pretty funny I forgot about the considering I ate lunch there today. Raymond's Men's shop closed down quite a number of years ago. They retired. And the Toy/Hobby Shop I think moved somewhere else ad then closed. I went in their once. It smelled nasty in there.

The walkway is still there. I like it.

I remember going and eating at woolworths with my dad when I was a kid. Here's some photos from the Caldor Rainbow showing the lifespan of the D&L building.

Yes. And I wished even though they redid the facade of the plaza that they had kept the old front on the old D&L Building.

2014 Update:

Carvel closed down at the end of August 2014 and is becoming Menchie's Frozen Yogurt.
Prudential Real Estate change their name to Bershire Hathaway.

The plaza across the street which is considered to be part of Bristol Plaza - The CVS Regional Office moved to the corner of Route 6 and North Main Street in part of the former McCormick's Restaurant. The other part of the former McCormic's was ripped down. Liberty Income Tax also closed.

The 2nd building across the street is supposed to become New England Urgent Care. T-Mobile is staying.

Update:

Wang's King Garden and Super Cuts have closed. (I guess they decided they didn't need 2 Super Cuts in Bristol the other being in Shoprite Plaza). And they're consolidating the 2 Webster Banks. The Webster Bank in-between the former State Farm Insurance office next to Century Buffet and TJ MAXX is being combined with their drive-thru only location, which is expanding taking over the former Wang's King Garden and Super Cuts. The new branch will be smaller than the old branch.

2016 Update:

Payless opened a giant size store in the 2 side-by-side empty spaces next to Dress Barn. This replaces their smaller store across Route 6 in the plaza with Pier One which is considered part of The Bristol Plaza. A dentist office opened in vacant space next to State Farm Insurance. Wolf's Wine & Spirits moved out of the plaza and over to nearby Jerome Avenue.

Across the street Pet Valu opened a store. Kay Jewelers is opening a store soon.

In the 2nd building across the street New England Urgent Care opened next to T-Mobile.

I honestly don't know how Century Buffet stays open. They changed owners several times since 2011 and the food has gotten worse and worse. I havent been there in quite a while especially after I got food poisoning from their Sushi in December 2015. In 2015 a clothing store operated briefly in the empty spot next to Dollar Tree that at one time was State Farm Insurance.

According to the real estate company's website a store called Work N Gear is opening next to Century Buffet in the old Webster Bank. They sell work clothing and accessories such as scrubs, safety shoes, uniforms, those safety vests construction workers wear, etc.

This will be their second Connecticut location.
