|Managed to take this of the old Glenmont store, one of the last in the immediate Albany area.|
This list of former Grand Union locations was on Wikipedia, but it had to be removed, so I put it here where it would be better. The end of an era.
Corinth, Warrensburg, Bolton Landing, Elizabethtown, Peru, North Creek, Au Sable Forks, Schroon Lake, Northville, Chestertown, Greenville (ex-Bryant's), Hancock, Stamford, Hoosick Falls, West Coxsackie, Tannersville and two in Saranac Lake (all small towns).
Other former GU stores:
Albany (Central Ave ACROSS from Westgate) - later was a Toys for Joy, now is a Hannaford
Albany (Central Ave IN Westgate) - A former Albany Public turned Scot's Lo Cost (Same company)- turned into GU when merged then torn down during renovations a few years back - sat in the "corner" of the plaza. Now has Price Chopper.
Albany (Central Ave just ABOVE Westgate same side) - This was a former Caldor/Price Chopper plaza - the Caldor was torn down and a MEGA SAVE store was built (identical to the one in Poughkeepsie that never opened) - this was open 6 MONTHS then closed during bankruptcy. In fact, at one point, a "Grand Opening" sign and a "Store Closing" sign were seen on the store at the same time. The whole plaza was torn down and a Home Depot is now there.
