A&P Once Attracted Shoppers from Other Towns
In "Then and Now," Sam Kurtz shares photo of the Westborough A&P Supermarket as it looks today.
Property records indicate that the supermarket was built in 1930 and was sold in 1978, but often earlier sales are not listed. If any readers have memories of the A&P, please share them in the "comments" section below!
Kris Allen's book, On The Beaten Path, explains how residents of other towns would often come to do their shopping here since Westborough had the first A&P in the area.
In the background, you can also see the Stand theater which opened in 1928 and closed in 1961 (tickets were 30 cents!). Today, an apartment building stands where the Strand once stood.
Do any Patch readers have memories of shopping at the A&P or going to see a movie at the Strand?
