The Rawlinson-Glaholm Grocery building at 437 Fitzwilliam Street is on the City of Nanaimo Heritage Building Registry (note-PDF).
In the words of the City of Nanaimo Heritage Building Registry (note-PDF),
“The Rawlinson & Glaholm Building’s value resides in its role as a gateway building. Located at a prominent intersection, the building marks the western entrance to one of Nanaimo’s oldest commercial areas. The angled corner entry mirrors the entry on the building directly across the street and creates a visual funnel, reinforcing the impression of entering a new and distinct space.”
In the 1970’s the building was occupied by the Pink Elephant Laundromat.
This historic building is now occupied by The Teak Tree, which sells teak furniture and home decor.
Here is how the building interior currently appears.
