We are Smalltown, USA.
For the past few years, the former Dann’s building has been known as Cederus Books, a set on the TV show Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. It’s a Netflix series. I’ve never seen it, but I’ve seen the TV crew filming on 176 Street in and around the old Dann’s building many times while walking the dogs.
At first I wasn’t sure what was going on in the old Dann’s building. For over 50 years Dann’s was a bike shop, sales and repairs, and then extended into small appliances and repairs. The family lived in the apartment over the shop. They closed their business about 10 years ago and sold the building.
Unfortunately it’s a set for a TV series and not open for business for real customers. This Netflix show seems to be a take off on the Sabrina the Teenage Witch character that was a spin-off from the Archie’s comic books.
Imagine my surprise a couple of days ago when Shadow and I went for a walk and the building was bare! No Cederus Books sign and the interior of the building is empty.
I did a search online and found out that Netflix has cancelled the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
The series was cancelled in the summer but it sounds like the final season hadn’t aired yet, so catch it on Netflix while you still can.
What do you think the old Dann’s building will be used for next?
