Smith's Grocery remained the tenant in 718 through the 1960s. 716 became Williams' Beauty Shop in the late 1940s/early 1950s, but that portion of the building remained vacant through the late 1950s before becoming LaPetite Beauty Nook in 1961.

The building was torn down in 1967. The site is the vacant back corner of a 1980s medical office complex.
