Landmark Green Awning at Thornes in Northampton to Come Down as Part of Exterior Renovation

NORTHAMPTON — The landmark green awning that’s been in place for three decades at Thornes Marketplace downtown will come down Monday morning as part of an exterior renovation project designed to give the shopping center a fresh look. In a nod to the past, the new facade is designed to look like the old McCallum’s department store that operated at the same 150 Main St. spot downtown for more than a century before it closed in 1974.
