Repairs were underway Saturday on the facade of the old McDonald’s Drug Store at 1110 Second St. in downtown Perry, with workers removing the plywood front to reveal the old sign.
The two-story, 8,000-square-foot building was built in 1900 and once housed a drug store and more recently was home to the Casa de Oro and lastly was Bosco’s Grill restaurant.
The property has been vacant about 10 years and was purchased in 2019 by Javier Zamora of Fontana, California, according to county records. The assessed value of the property in 2020 was $69,760.
An Adel auction house failed to secure a single bid on the property when it went up for sale in 2017 even after the starting price of $7,500 was dropped to $5,000.
