26. Northwest Hardware Co. (1907)

213-215 W Holly St.  and 1220-1222 Bay St.
The Bay St. part of the store was built as a hardware store in 1907 and was acquired by Northwest Hardware, whose building on Holly St. abutted onto it. The Bay St. store was sold in the 1940s to Bennett & Provanche (B & P Distributors) wholesalers of tobacco, candy and liquor. B & P occupied the building until 1974 and the successor Bellingham Hardware then used the upper floor for storage. (Turbeville, 1977, pp.201-202.)
The upper floors of the Holly St. part of the store have  been converted more recently to condominiums.
