Well, you may best remember this spot as Red Wing Rollerway:

but whatever follow-on operation KNC Trading did, they're not doing it any more.

The vans pulled up in late August, and now, as of 8 September, the building is empty and has once more been sold:

    I never understood what this place was doing or who they catered to. And what's up with the 'No barbers, cosmetologists and nail technicians'? I never saw anyone around here. Please tell me what they did!!

    @Homer - I found this write up on the interweb dated late 2008. A man named Dong Nho purchased the property.

    OK - let me get this straight. They were a beauty supply wholesaler and retailer except 'No barbers, cosmetologists and nail technicians' allowed. Makes perfect sense to me. Never trust a guy with no dong....

    It looked like these folks only wanted to sell to retailers and apparently it was an abysmal fail.

    Is it just me or does this look uninviting??

    I wonder if that dude ever had to put his last name first on paperwork , or contracts as I'm sure the H is silent. It would read: Nho Dong. Friday Funny Y'all.

    I dated a Korean woman who owned a retail beauty supply store that catered to black women. Once I went shopping for supplies with her at a semi-secret location on Decker. There was literally no signage on the outside of the store. Insularity is one of the ways the Koreans have kept the "black hair supply" business locked down.

    The Vietnamese, in a similar fashion, control the nail business. The name of the property owner appears to be Vietnamese. Perhaps that's the reason for the signs.
