Willimantic's Redevelopment periodThis is the southwest corner of Valley and Jackson Streets. From the left, the storefronts were occupied in the 1960s by Superior Electronics and George Bourey’s “College Shop”. The building with “72” painted on it had an entrance on Valley Street and was home to Borodach’s Grocery Store. Joseph "Al" Beaulieu told us that, "the first building to the left was Samson Meat Market, then The College Shop, and Ame Bordack Meat Market, which caught fire on the second floor, we had one of our Fire Fighters go through the floor that night . I believe the building was owned by a Mrs Haddad."
