Paws in the Park PAWTUCKET – Updating the Pawtucket City Council last week on their latest plans for the redevelop- ment of the Narragansett Park Plaza, representatives from Carpionato gave some clues as to the kind of tenants the city might see. "If you track our developments and announcements, you'll be able to, I think, come to your own conclusions about who our tenancy will be," said Carpionato's Kelly Coates. Among the tenants announced at some of Carpionato's recent proj- ects, including redevelopments of former Benny's locations, are Dave's Marketplace, Dollar General, Ace Hardware, Harbor Freight and O'Reilly Auto Parts. The company is expected to have a grocery store tenant in the former Stop & Shop at Narragansett Park Plaza, but is not saying what store it will be. "We pick guys and we run with them," Coates told the City Council of Carpionato's regular business part- ners. Carpionato also partners with other grocers in its developments. A representative for Dave's said this week that the local grocery chain is not involved with the project at 674 Carpionato gives a clue on stores at Narragansett Park Plaza By ETHAN SHOREY Valley Breeze Editor See STORES, Page 8 PAWTUCKET – All seven of the incumbent Democrats on the Pawtucket School Committee are running for re-election on Nov. 3 along with independent challenger Rodney Barber, with the top seven vote-getters each earning a seat on the board.
