Snapshot: Stop & Shop - West Haverstraw, NY

One more stop in Haverstraw (actually, West Haverstraw) today before we head north up the Hudson River tomorrow! We'll take a quick look here at a Stop & Shop, the larger supermarket in town.
Now, to be clear, I didn't say the more modern store, although Ideal isn't exactly state-of-the-art either. Funny thing is, there's only one logo on this store, and it's on the side! Granted, this side faces the highway, but it's still strange not to have a logo on the front.
No, you're not seeing things. That's a massive curved glass greenhouse-type facade. Here's a better look from Google Maps...
Oh yes. Just let the beauty of that sink in. Yikes. This store is at 7 Samsondale Plz, West Haverstraw.

  1. What exactly did this start as? And was it constructed in the 80s or just remodeled to have that facade then? (It helps the store is a dark gray, since now that's becoming Ahold's color of choice, it seems.)

    1. Those are all good questions, but I unfortunately don't have definite answers to any of them. Based on Historic Aerials, it appears that the store was expanded between 1974 and 1994, which would put it solidly in the 80s. That likely would have coincided with the exterior design we see now. I don't know whether it was built as a Stop & Shop or not, but I don't believe I've ever seen this facade design on any other location.
