Do You Remember the Stores and Restaurants that Used to be in Southampton Center?

Help us dredge up names of businesses that used to call Southampton Center home.

Do you remember when Nations was in Southampton Center?  It used to be where the Starbucks is now located.  Some of the names are easy to remember because, like Nations, the business has relocated to another part of town.

Others like Country Waffles simply disappeared from Benicia.

Does anyone remember Boston Market or Cold Stone Creamery?

What are some of the other businesses that have left Southampton Center and either relocated or disappeared from Benicia?  Tell us in comments.

Why has nobody mentioned the stores that have been there the entire time? Super Stop, Raleys, Burger King, Rickshaw, The UPS store, Ensanada, the laundry mat, the jewelry store, Hallmark... Seems to me thats a lot of stores. Stop being so negative.

I started my real estate career at ERA in Southampton Center. There was a bank next door where Boston Market and Verizon were that would send people over to get notarized paperwork. That's how I got my first clients...
