Albano’s Market building in Springfield’s South End being demolished; historic sign to survive

SPRINGFIELD — The building at 1167 East Columbus Ave. in Springfield’s South End that once housed Albano’s Market and its well-loved Italian ice will disappear, but the market’s familiar sign will survive.

Paul C. Picknelly, head of 180 Redevelopment Inc., which bought the building in 2015, said workers salvaged the Albano’s sign and he’s given it to Joe Frigo of Frigo’s Gourmet Foods, who has promised to display it at his shop around the corner from Albano’s on William Street.
