Very quick look today at the Stop & Shop in the Preakness Shopping Center, which is just around the corner from the Corrado's we saw yesterday. At 64,000 square feet to Corrado's 35,000, the Stop & Shop is nearly double the size but I have no doubt that Corrado's succeeds well against Stop & Shop. The interior of this store is bland as anything, and it's hard to pinpoint how long ago it opened but it's possible it was a replacement for a Grand Union store that Stop & Shop bought; there was one just north on Hamburg Tpk. Perhaps the Grand Union moved in the 80s to where the Stop & Shop is now, or perhaps the stores were unrelated. Up next is a look at the former A&P that remains in this mall over on Grocery Archaeology!
