Whatever goes around, comes around.
Westporters have watched for months, as the former Barnes & Noble on the Post Road is transformed into an Amazon Fresh grocery store.
The mid-gut interior was the subject of last week’s Photo Challenge. Fred Cantor, Will Gibson, Elaine Marino, Lynn Untermeyer Miller, Bobbie Herman, Clark Thiemann, June Rose Whittaker, Brooks Sumberg and Barbara Phillips all quickly identified Betsy Pollak’s photo. (Click here to see.)
Lynn added this great factoid: The site of a future supermarket started out — before Barnes & Noble — as a Waldbaum’s.
Meanwhile, who remembers that this Post Road location was actually the second for Barnes & Noble? The bookstore’s first Westport outlet was less than a mile east, in the space currently occupied by Bev Max.
Before that, it was a Pier One. And — waaaaay earlier — it was a bowling alley.
Unlike Amazon Fresh, that space is unlikely to return to its original roots.
Here’s today’s Photo Challenge. If you know where in Westport you’d see this intriguing sight, click “Comments” below.
