Most of the area around the US Military at West Point is within the boundaries of New York State's Bear Mountain State Park and Harriman State Park.North of Stoney Point not another store existed until you were above the Bear Mountain Bridge in West Point About ten Miles away, also a small Grand Union.
Hmmmm.......Grand Unions were in:
- Highland Falls, NY (the town is just outside the gates of the US Military Academy at West Point) on US Route 9W. Southern Side of USMA. Now a Key Food
- Highland Mills, NY - Located on the West side of the USMA. The Grand Union was less than 10,000 square feet and looked almost exactly like the Grand Union in Glens Falls, NY pictured here: http://pleasantfamilyshopping.blogspot. ... vator.html The only differences were: 1) Since the store was only 6-10 feet off NY Route 32, the entrance door was on the side where the Grand Union 'Stop Sign" is located in the picture. 2) The neon Grand Union signage was similar to the signage on the Corporate Headquarters shown in the 1966 photo. The store closed in 1978 or 1979 and was converted into the Highland Mills, NY (10930) Post Office. Very little renovation has been done to the original structure - the only real change is the light blue paint on the original white stucco exterior.
- Cornwall, NY - Quaker Road. Was a busy 30,000 Square foot store. Now a Key Food
- Monroe, NY - Lake St. at Millpond Parkway, This store is shown is the "Food-O-Mat" photo. This store also was later home to Ross Lumber ACE Hardware (closed 2003 - due to competition from the newer Home Depot and Wal-Mart constructed at the Junction of NY-17, US-6, NY-32 and I-87). This Grand Union was relocated to a newer unit in the mid-1970's to a plaza on NY-17M with a former Grant's (later a small 40,000 sq ft K-Mart) and then later the 1970's Grand Union was replaced by a larger Grand Union on the other side of the plaza (now a Super Stop & Shop)
