Because the building is so old, it has three ceilings, making the flames difficult to fight.
It took firefighters about 30 minutes to bring the fire under control.
No one was inside the business when the fire started, and no one was injured.
The entire 100 block of West Market Street was closed while crews battled the fire.
Neighboring business Rock My Locks also sustained damage.
