I live in Windcrest and I love going to the Habitat Home Center for building supplies but I'm curious, does anyone know what the original purpose of the building was? I know it wasn't always the Habitat Home Center...

I remember it housed Wilsons's Catalog Showroom in the 1980s, which was probably the original tenant. It later became Service Merchandise. I think Service Merchandise closed down in the late 1990s.

I only remember it being service merchandise and it closed when the entire chain went out.
