Ghost Bull Durham Sign Restored

Part of historic funkiness got restored this week on 7th Street. Along with repointing 601 N 7th's facade, we restored the old advertising "ghost" sign for Genuine Bull Durham which was pretty much faded away. 603 N 7th - the green and yellow checkerboard building is scheduled for a historic facelift next month!

Pharmacy Coming to 7th Street


The neighborhood has been without a pharmacy ever since Rite Aid left the old Sears building at 602 N. 7th St. to return to Hamilton. Leaking and code problems, and not poor sales, forced the move. Rite Aid's 7th was reportedly among the busiest in the region.

Enter Allentown Pharmacy. The new drug store is set to open "soon" just down 7th, in part of the old Sears Auto Center, at 530 N. 7th St.

More details to come.

WFMZ's cameras captured Seventh Street's St. Luke's Lutheran Church live nativity:

The story of Christmas was brought to life at an event in Allentown.

Folks were treated to a live nativity at St. Luke's Lutheran Church on 7th Street Sunday afternoon.

The display featured alpacas, goats and burros, that were all brought in from a local farm.

This is the first year the church put together the live nativity.

Welcome to Seventh Street, Wells Fargo. (Wachovia was, of course, acquired by Wells Fargo back in 2008, but only now is the Wachovia name getting phased out.)
