The Cross-Abbott Grocery was a two-story wood-frame commercial building. The Cross-Abbott Company was established by Charles A. Cross and Charles C. Abbott. The Cross-Abbott Company used the railroad to send and receive supplies that they would wholesale. In 1948, the Red & White Corporation was interested in acquiring the Cross-Abbott Company, and both companies merged. They moved to their new warehouse outside Hartford in 1957 in order to expand into a bigger company, which included a 70,000 cubic foot freezer locker.
