Sel-Rite, a grocery store, operated from this location in 1926. Nick's Package Store Liquors was located here from approximately 1947 to 1965. This addressed was vacant by 1975. Fat Rat's Lounge, a 1920s-style bar, was opened here by Jason Turner in 2010. The building was renovated by Turner, who expanded it another 2,000 square feet. Turner also opened Jason's Martini Club, located at 300 South Sanford Avenue, in 2007.
