Danville's downtown grocery store was torn down Thursday. In the 1950s, the building on Main Street was an A&P Grocery and later became a Save-A-Lot until that store moved to Lexington Road.
The city, which owns the property, hired Norwood Construction Co. for $19,450 to demolish the building. The space will become a parking lot.
The City Commission is considering building a new city hall on the site and turning the existing city hall next door into a police station.
