A Globe West Native? Take Our Quiz!


Are you a Globe West native? If so:

You shopped at Spags in Shrewsbury, where merchandise had prices written on it in permanent black marker (that never came off)

You remember the spaceship saucer dome at the old Shoppers World outdoor plaza, and the animal park in the courtyard

Your Brownie/Boy Scout troop got a tour of the old Wonder Bread factory, which smelled heavenly. Highlights were a slice of bread fresh off the assembly line, and a free Twinkie at the end.

You thought the sight of the glittering chandelier in the lobby of the Chateau de Ville concert hall in Framingham was the best part of a nighttime drive down Rte. 9 eastbound.

You remember the big fires at Northborough Town Hall and White City Cinema in Shrewsbury
