A little of the city’s history is being knocked down on West Parrish. What everybody agrees was Owensboro’s first strip mall is being razed at Werner and Parrish. The Stop and Shop was built in 1951, and for 40 years was a Wyndall’s grocery store. It was the first retail center away from Owensboro’s downtown. Realtors say renovating the existing buildings would be too expensive, and the property will be easier to sell once it’s they’re leveled.
