More Information

Originally with an east facade nearly entirely composed of glass, this structure, with its dramatic, up-swinging entry overhang, once formed a dramatic focal point to this stretch of North Main Street. The building was part of the North End Shopping Centre. The building, remaining a supermarket, has been substantially altered.
