As is well known, expressions like "at the printers" or "to the cleaners" can be equivalent to "at the printer's shop" or "to the cleaner's shop" respectively. But if this is so, these expressions could be construed with a plural or a singular verb. So my question is, which one of the followings is grammatical—A, B, or both?
A. The printers is near the hospital.
B. The printers are near the hospital.
