Shops near DeVeaux

Thanks to Gary Herren for filling in the info on the DeVeaux shopping center stores.   On the other side of DeVeaux was Johnson Furniture, Phairmont Pharmacy, National Foods (which later became Foodtown) and Shoppers Town Discount Store.

If I remember correctly the pharmacy sat back from the front of  Johnson's and the grocery. There was a soda fountain and lunch counter near the front of the pharmacy. I think there was also a beauty shop and an office of Prudential Insurance in the set back.

Wasn't the original Johnson's in an old two story building at the corner of Sylvania and Douglas? I believe there was a PURE gas station on the other side of Douglas.
