Historic hispanic businesses in Warehouse District get facelift

By Olicia McCann | Downtown Devil

Located on the corner of Third and Buchanan Streets in downtown Phoenix, two historical buildings from the 1900s remain intact.

These two establishments — Gerardo’s Building and Arvizu’s El Fresnal Grocery Store — are all that remains of a lively Hispanic neighborhood that once existed in the area now called the Warehouse District.

Arvizu’s El Fresnal Grocery was built around 1900, according to Donna Reiner, a historian at the Phoenix Historical Society.
