Dumbarton Square, Richmond
Dumbarton Square is a small strip mall at the corner of Hilliard and Staples Mill Road. It is anchored by Ukrop's and Eckerd (drugstore). There is also a Shoney's restaurant in the parking lot. My favourite shop here is 2M Mediterranean Market & Deli. This shopping centre goes back a way with me. I can remember before Ukrop's came to Mechanicsville in 1990 that this was the nearest location of that unique local grocery store chain. I can also remember my younger brother being told not to touch things in the ceramic store, which is no longer there.

What to buy: You an find groceries, pharmaceuticals, ethnic foods, and kitchen supplies among other things.
What to pay: Ukrop's is considered fairly pricey, but nothing at Dumbarton Square is too outageous for this middling northside neighbourhood.
