A Historic CVS

This is the new CVS located at 10th and U. But I took a look at the little sign outside and it revealed that the CVS is housed in a historic DC building. So I ask you, is it a shame that a historic building now houses a CVS or is it great that the building still exists and there is a little sign to commemorate its past?

According to the sign the building has been an “important social and cultural center.  In addition to the Masons, it has housed a bowling alley, ballroom, and restaurant.”  And now a CVS.  Maybe I’m just looking a bit too deeply into this.  If it housed a bowling alley surely it can house a CVS…but, man, a bowling alley would be way cooler.
