As of Thursday, April 11, about two-thirds of the brick facade that had defined the look of Norby's Department Store since 1959 had been removed. Now under new ownership, the building is being renovated and returned to its original look of more than 100 years ago. It will have commercial space on the main level and apartments upstairs, and will go by the name of Norby Flats. (Marie Johnson / Tribune)
