The Rite Aid was built on the southeast corner of 7th and Dickinson after the Stratford Theater was razed. You can see that the theater extends almost to the street while the drugstore, a much smaller building, is set well back in the property with parking in front.

The Rite Aid parking lot is on the northeast corner of 7th and Dickinson. The Stratford Theater has been demolished, in any case.
