Former IGA (Now Family Dollar), New Boston, OH
While passing through Portsmouth, Ohio en route from Wisconsin to West Virginia, I seemed to hit a goldmine of interesting retail buildings.

This gable-roofed dollar store on Rhodes Avenue, with its faux chimney pylon and incongruously large tacked-on sign, looks like an old supermarket of some kind. Although I initially had no idea what the building once was, I've since been informed that it was once an independent IGA affiliate, was open through 1975 at the very least, and was vacant for some time before being reoccupied. Ain't the Internet great?
