Built in 1962 on the property of Fred S. Cates (a.k.a. Mr. Hands in Every Cookie Jar). It was Store #1 but was not the first store built.

The store moved up the road/highway (to 201 Cornelius Street/US HWY 70) circa 1975. This building was then used only as Orange County ABC Board headquarters and warehouse until 2013-2014.

Sold by the ABC in 2014 to Triangle Environmental Services, it was demolished in 2019 after a fire gutted the structure.
