(Parkville, MD) -- A Parkville landmark in the 8000 block of Harford Road is about to become a grocery store.

The VFW hall which first opened in 1946 has suffered in recent years from declining membership and the effects of the pandemic.

The hall has been sold as part of a three-property deal to a developer who plans on transforming the location into a grocery store.

The building has hosted weekly bingo nights, crab feasts and spaghetti dinners as well as private rentals for anniversary and birthday parties.

Officials say the hall was best known for serving as a meeting place for veterans of World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.
