1948 - Present Saba's Western Store

Built in 1921 by Dr. Walter S. Lawson to serve the needs of a growing farm village, this red brick building housed a drug store for twenty seven years until the Saba family purchased it in 1948. Remodeled to reflect Scottsdale's chosen image as "The West's Most Western Town", Saba's Department Store and later Saba's Western Store have occupied the old drug store ever since.
