Unlike yesterday's post that I'm now convinced was previously a car dealership, I'm equally certain that this building right on the border between Webster and Dudley was originally a grocery store. The roughly 12,500 square foot building has distinct similarities to supermarkets of the 1940s (especially the blocked-out windows along the sides), and was constructed before 1966 according to Historic Aerials. Later in life, the space became a Brooks Pharmacy and then a Rite Aid, and is now a Dollar General. (We've seen that progression before.) And on Monday, we'll be headed into downtown Webster for a look at a store that definitely was previously a supermarket!
