Jitney Jungle, M&M Supermarket, Oscar's Video Rental

The building on the north side of the hotel housed two different grocery stores at different times from the 1940s to the 1970s: a Jitney Jungle and M&M Super Market/Frisco Supermarket.

A mid-1950s photo shows the building as M&M Supermarket.

The last business to occupy the building was Oscar's Video Rental, which closed between the late 1990s and early 2000s.
