Spaces are available for lease.
It wasn't too long ago that this writer would frequent the Curry Commons shopping center in Baldwin Borough for a hoagie from Mariana's Pizza or a carton of iced tea from the corner mini-mart.

The place was a favorite of many along Streets Run Road.
The Chesapeake, a surf-and-turf restaurant that was a favorite of many residents in Baldwin-Whitehall and the surrounding area—especially with its seafood buffet special—has been closed for some time at its spot along Streets Run Road in Baldwin Borough. There is still activity at that property these days with a number of trailers and other work vehicles spotted there frequently, but there are no signs of life coming from the restaurant building, which has been boarded up for years. If The Chesapeake were to reopen, could it survive? Or would you like to see something else there? The 1.766-acres property—1965 Streets Run Rd.—is zoned for use as a restaurant, café and/or bar. In April 2011, Baldwin police Chief Michael Scott said that he …

The 28-year shopping center staple is closing.
UPDATE: Groceries are still on sale through Saturday. They're at 75-percent off of their regular prices now, but pickings are very slim. The store will auction off its equipment and appliances at the property itself on Tuesday morning at 9:30. (The Redbox machine has been removed.) With nearby competition, construction and changing clientele, the Curry Hollow Road Foodland will soon be out of business. The grocery store, which has been owned by Kenneth Krall for the past four-and-a-half years and located at the Curry Hollow Shopping Center for the past 28, is selling the remainder of its merchandise at a 40-percent discount until, essentially, the store runs out of stuff (exceptions to discount: milk and tobacco). When the groceries are …
