I recall that there was one of those magnificent Regal gas stations on the NE corner of this intersection. They sold everything from chaise lounges to yard tools here.Located on the SW corner was Pierries Italian deli. I’ll never forget the wonderful aroma that would hit you as you walked thru the front door. We used to buy the most excellent pizzas here that were cut into small squares rather than triangular as is the norm. My folks also used to buy minnestrone in glass gallon containers. They knew the owner as they all grew up together in the Italian neighborhood near Commerce high school, which is now of course Cleveland.
I do remember Loris Pieri. I worked for him in high school at his restaurant and a some at the deli. Great pizza to eat and make, especially in the squares. Always think of him when I heading by those two buildings.
