  1. Downtown on Pleasant St. on the State St. side of the church is where Lunt & Kelly’s
    used to be. At that time(50s & 60s) it was about the only place to get toys, sporting goods, a bicycle, etc.. In addition to being the only hardware store in town.

  2. Mammoth Mart was awesome! Pretty much everyone I knew shopped there, b/c it was centrally located and convenient to Amesbury, Salisbury and Newburyport. From what my parents and aunts have told me, the Salisbury Crossroads Plaza Mammoth Mart opened somewhere around 1960-61.

    The supermarket in Crossroads Plaza was indeed a First National, and there was a small Montgomery Wards catalogue store (no actual merchandise, you could just go in and place an order from the catalogue and they would order it for you), a hair salon where my mother and grandmother used to go (can’t remember the name), and the area’s first Kentucky Fried Chicken in a separate building toward the front of the plaza, near where the “Crossroads Plaza” sign is.

    In the Seabrook plaza, Forrest Hills was the original store, later replaced by Ames. There was a second plaza located somewhat near to where that ghastly WalMart plaza is now, but a bit further up, roughly across from where Kohl’s is now, that housed the Zayres and DeMoula’s.
