Greenberg's Torn Down for New Cumberland Farms

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The former Greenberg's Home Center at Hodges Cross Road was being taken apart on Tuesday to make way for a new Cumberland Farms.
According to Cumberland Farms officials, the store will be its newest prototype of 4,513 square feet, with five fueling stations accommodating up to 10 vehicles and parking for 15 to 20 cars.
It will offer hot food items such as pizza, chicken tenders, subs, macaroni and cheese bites, and more.
The new store is expected to open in September and employ 15 to 20 people.
The chain has been revamping its hundreds of locations and expanding with more emphasis on in-store offerings of "food to go." Williamstown was among the first to see a new store in 2009, when the Cumberland Farms there was rebuilt and expanded after a fire. The Dalton Cumby's was the most recent to be renovated in the Berkshires and the 175th store overall.
North Adams also has Cumberland Farms on Ashland Street and Union Street. The new store on Curran Highway, directly across from the new Walmart, was approved for 24/7 operations in January.
Greenberg's closed suddenly in January 2013 after 40 years. Cumberland Farms Inc. purchased the lot at 1366 Curran Highway on April 24 for $950,000 from Normsel Development Ten LLC.
First Hartford Development of Mansfield, Conn., which owns the former Kmart Plaza on Main Street, assisted Cumberland Farms in procuring and permitting the site. The general contractor is EMCO construction of Latham, N.Y.
