The northeast corner of Glenn St. and Fayetteville St. developed with a small stuccoed structure adajacent to a two-story frame structure in the 1930s. This initially housed the Durham Sandwich Shop (the name on the 1944 marquee above) and Carolina Cab Company. Through the late 1940s and early 1950s, these businesses changed hands a few times, becoming the Central Electric Shoe Shop, and Carlton's Market, then Jimmy's Food Store.

In 1953, the buildings were destroyed by fire.

If there were remnants of the buildings, they were razed, and the site became Dawson's Gulf Service Station by 1959.
