This image of the structure housing the present-day Christmas Shop, in what is known as the Arcade Building, shows the evolution of uses on Merchant's Square. Among the earliest in the shopping mall genre, the area has had a variety of tenants. Initially the town's post office, this building now also houses a portion of today's Trellis Restaurant. A portion of Pender's Grocery Store, now the site of Everything Williamsburg, is visible to the left.
