Eat for Alberta Street
Dark for decades, the Alberta Rexall Drug sign was relit on New Year’s Eve.
The sign carries a great deal of historical significance for Alberta Street. Rexall Drug opened on NE Alberta Street in 1915 and operated for 66 years. In 1994, Oregonian reporter Ulrike Langer wrote, “When the store closed, after a brutal holdup in 1981, neighbors held a wake. For many older Northeast Portlanders, the bright blue and orange sign on the corner of Northeast Alberta and 24th evokes memories of better times.” Langer, Ulrike. “Alberta Neighborhood in Transition,” The Oregonian 5 October. 1994: 1. Print.
