Walden at Ruhland Avenue (google map).
This corner store (Walden and Ruhland) was owned by the same family for 60 years. In the past 20 it's traded owners 4x. In September 2011 a fire ripped through the interior. It's been vacant since. There's one remaining corner store on Walden between Fillmore and Bailey, where neighborhood residents used to shop. Today, the #22 bus stops at Walmart.
