The multi-bay commercial structure at 713-717 Fayetteville St. appears to have been built circa 1930. By the mid 1930s, 713 housed Max Zuckerman's meat market, 715 William Boykin's tailor shop, and 717 the Carolina Barber Shop.
By 1941, 713 had changed to College View Shoe Repair, which became Hayti Shoe Repair by the 1950s, and the H&H Sport Shop by 1957 and the Palms Beauty Salon by 1959. Boykin's at 715 had become Boykin and Roberts' by 1959 as well. By 1968, 713 was the Modern Beauty Salon, and 717 was vacant. It appears to have had another tenant, briefly after that (Fowlers Barber Shop?)

Circa 1970.

This structure was torn down ~1972. It is now the entry to 'Withers Court' - a cul-de-sac of sorts built during the 1980s.
