the old Laird and Dines drug store

historically, the building on fifth street
and mill avenue was a dry goods store
called Laird and Dines drug store. the
building consisted of two stories and
a basement, which served as a bookstore
for the high school. Laird and Dines was
a drugstore for 63 years. When the
downtown Tempe area was revitalized
the old Laird and Dines store was razed
and rebuilt to resemble its original 
appearance...except now the second
floor is a Hooters restaurant.

Which somehow detracts from the historical aspects.
