How times have changed in our neighbor drugstore; from a soda fountains to sushi.

The Boston Business Journal reports, “contractors are at work restoring a portion of the building that once housed the bookstore and the historic Boston Five Cents Savings Bank. The new space in the former bank will feature marble and limestone walls, dark wood paneling and a porcelain floor. The store is one of three such Walgreens stores in the country. The others are in New York and in Chicago.”
