    IIRC, this was an ABC store until around the mid 1990s when it was moved to Chapel Hill Blvd near Lone Star Steakhouse.

    In the 50's it was a roofing co. Pickard I think.

    Building was built as a grocery store. (don't remember the name)
    They had a tent set up outside where they would show kids
    cartoons on saturday mornings to occupy the kids while parents
    bought groceries. Building became Pickard Roofing after
    grocery store closed.

    Cocoa Cinnamon will be opening a coffee shop and "micro-roastery" here soon: http://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2016/08/24/durhams-cocoa-cinnam...

    Nice to see Lakewood and some of these old buildings finding new uses.

Broadway and Ward Grocery Store. One-story brick, flat-roofed commercial building with a parapet roof with terra cotta coping, walls of running bond veneer, and a glass storefront with metal door and window trim. Small metal windows illuminate the side elevations. H. J. Broadway and Philip Ward ran a grocery store here in the 1940s. By 1952 Pickard Rooftng Co. occupied the building. [1937 SM, 1952 CD, interview] 

For the past few years the building has been home to Chameleon Nightclub. There is a great mural on the side of the building as well.
