  4. Ok, here it goes. The Mammoth Mart in North Smithfield was on the spot where the Stop & Shop Parking lot is however none of the original buildings remain.
    At the time there was an Almacs sitting where the Stop & Shop is now. There was also for a while a Burger Chef in the parking lot near the road.
