This photo from November 2007 shows the little store that used to stand at 1121 North 31st Street. No idea how long it was there, or exactly when the building was demolished.

FOODLAND, Fatduck’s, that little store that used to be at 24th and Fairmount, Family Super Market, the store before Captain Buzzy’s, what was there before Anthony’s on the Hill, and now Blue Wheeler… these little grocery stores that were such a reliable and iconic part of the urban fabric in the area for generations have been steadily disappearing over the past 10 years.

This change makes Crenshaw’s longevity all the more astounding. The building at 1801 22nd Street has been a store since at least 1925 according to Sanborn Maps, approximately the time in which the building would have been built.
