Nostagia Break: Riverdale, Pre-Starbucks

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Sent in by a Racked informant, a 'before' shot of the Riverdale storefront slated to become the nabe's first Starbucks. The attached note reads: "a photo of the building/store when the Chinese restaurant was still operable...the photo probably dates back to summer of 06'." Will those with 'after' shots please step forward? We're dying to see if the mermaid has surfaced.
