756-760 Ninth St. was built in the early 1930s. 756 housed Southern Dry Cleaners as its original tenant, and 758-760 housed Pender’s Stores and Parragon 5¢ to $1 Store, respectively.
756 Ninth would house the Southern Dry Cleaners until 1980, while 758-760 had a variety of other tenants:
758 Colonial Stores gros
760 Royal Sandwich Co
758-760: Red & White Super Mkt gros (later Eaubanks Red and White)

The Red and White closed in the late 1960s. 756-760 became the Towel Shop, which it would remain through 1990.
756 currently houses Ultimate Comics. Several years ago, 758-760 was renovated to house Charlie's - the renovation pushed back the storefront to create an outdoor dining space, which I think is a pretty creative way to deal with the shallow sidewalks
on Ninth St. I seem to remember that the brickwork had been covered as well - but maybe I'm not remembering this correctly.
