Granada Plaza Shopping Center


Ormond Beach, Florida - circa 1960s

The Walgreens and TG&Y store in the Granada Plaza shopping center in Ormond Beach, Florida. Granada Plaza is a strip mall (still there today) with an interesting location nestled right next to the Atlantic Ocean. Zoom out its aerial view to truly appreciate this plaza's impressive spot, which also puts me in mind of the Gulf View Square Mall postcard I shared before (in Port Richey, FL), with its close (if not downright precarious looking) proximity to the water.

The letters stood for the names of the chains' founders: Thomlinson, Gosselin & Young.

zwanzig: I think that's cool, too, that that Walgreen's still there today! :)

Love these old strip centers. Since the Walgreen's is still there what is the TG&Y occupied by now?

oooh I love that plaza sign, look closely and you can spot the old-timed styled car silhouette logo.

That thing usually transportation themed was obviously popular for the time,heres another example

I live in Orlando, but as a kid my family made day trips to the beach. In passing, I'm sure we went by this plaza, it looks familiar.

So cool that others remember TG&Y, one of my brothers worked at one in the early 80s. They had neat stuff, loved the fabric dept.
