Built in the 1930s.

1939 Duke Homecoming Parade (Retrochrome.net) showing 400 W. Main as the "Advance Store" and "Durham Beauty Academy." I was a bit loath to believe that this shot was from as early as 1939, but I can't imagine the "Advance Store" would use a rising sun logo after the early 1940s.
