I've often wondered if they weren't intended to be part of a larger complex.
I know that the Brentwood Art Center used to house both a grocery store and a hair dresser. If you go in the building, you can see where the different businesses used to be, as the floor goes up and down according to what was once a separate business. Moreover, in one room, the wall is lined with electric outlets, as it was where the hairdresser used to be.
