SOUTH PORTLAND — A Scarborough executive has vowed to keep the family tradition strong at a Knightville landmark grocery store.

On Aug. 1, Alan Cardinal and his wife, Sylvia Most, assumed ownership of Legion Square Market. The Ocean Street store is commonly known as Smaha’s and was owned and operated by Tom Smaha for several decades, according to a news release.

Smaha said he looked carefully for a buyer committed to maintaining the community presence.

“I’m excited to continue Legion Square Market’s tradition of providing quality products and great service to the local community,” Cardinal said.
