Royal Farms site work has begun!

It’s been a LONG time coming, but work has begun in earnest on the property along Route 74 in Dover Township across from McDonald’s – which was long ago home to a Jay’s supermarket, plus a bunch of other odds and ends since – that is slated to become a Royal Farms convenience store.

While driving by today, I got a couple of shots on my cell camera of the demolition of the old building there.

Take a look:

This is a view from the rear of the store, taken from along Grenway Road. You can see that a lot of the building has already been demolished.

This is the view from along Fox Run Road to the side. Action shot, of the heavy equipment knocking stuff down! Yes, don’t laugh at my photo skills, that cell phone camera is pretty hard to use.

So anyway, does anyone remember the Jay’s at this site? And even better, does anyone know what it was before it was Jay’s?
