New Orleans, LA
2010: 2019:
This Walgreens in New Orleans also opened in 1938. It was their fifth store in Louisiana. There were about 500 other stores in the U.S. at the time. This store is still open. The wording on the sign has been changed a little. It originally read "Cigars" instead of "Photo." It read "Cafeteria" instead of "Prescriptions." In 2010, the neon was nearly replaced with LED tubing. Apparently, the neon was replaced with colored neon tubing which was not the original look. I believe the colors at night are still the same. The Historic District Landmarks Commission Architectural Review Committee denied the request. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

The Newberry Building
Bellows Falls, VT
former Newberry's
North Adams, MA
former Newberry's
Mars Hill, ME
This J.J. Newberry's in Bellows Falls was designed in 1928 but not built until 1938. It was originally to have been twice as big but was scaled back with the Depression. Newberry's closed in the 1980s and the space became Berry & Co. until the early 1990s. It then sat vacant for nearly a decade. It was renovated and reopened in 2004 with retail space below and condos above. The original sign was completely restored when this photo was taken in 2003. That sign is gone now. [map]

This Newberry's in North Adams opened in 1926 and closed in 1993. Business suffered with the opening of a Kmart and the Berkshire Mall near Pittsfield. However, with the opening of MASS MoCA art museum, the downtown area has been revitalized. In 2002, Moulton's General Store opened in the space. The sign's lettering and awning were created in the style of the original occupant. This photo is from 2005. By 2014, the building's occupant was the Shear Madness Salon. Another similar red sign was installed with the new name. [map]

This Newberry's in Mars Hill closed in the 1980s. When this photo was taken in 2009, the building housed the remains of a closed video store. The sign was still there in 2015 but gone by 2018. [map]

J.J. Newberry Building
El Paso, TX
J.J. Newberry Building
Los Angeles, CA
The J.J. Newberry Building in El Paso was built in 1911 for Calisher's Dry Goods. There were a few other stores in the building before housing Newberry's (sometime between 1935 and the 1950s). I don't know when Newberry's closed. The corner of the building originally had windows just like those on the sides. It is believed that the windows are still there under the veneer covering. For more, see this website. [map]
