World Gym / Bingo, 6420-P Garners Ferry Road: 2000s   3 comments

Posted at 1:08 am in business,entertainment

I noticed this empty storefront in Cedar Terrace a while back while taking pictures for a closing on the adjacent Fred's. These sort of addresses are a bit of a problem to google because there isn't a standard representation. Is it "6420P Garners Ferry Road", "6420 Garners Ferry Road Suite P", "6420 Garners Ferry Road #P", or something else? Given that I have no personal memory at all as to what may have been here, I tried googling all of those.

It appears that the place was World Gym at one time, and then on 11 December 2007 there was a zoning hearing to zone the place for a bingo parlor. From the structure of the zoning minutes, that was expected to be approved, so I'll guess it did happen.

I also expect that the bingo operation followed the gym, because if you look at the back wall in these pictures, the last place in there had a smoking section and a concession stand, which would be pretty odd for a gym.

  1. I used to work out at World's. I started when I was at USC, then when I moved back from Charlotte I went back. Then the guy closed up to open up Hampton Hills and wouldn't waive the "sign up fee" for World's members. I said eff that noise and went elsewhere.
    Now that I work at USC I use the good ole Blatt, pretty nice now that they've expanded it.

  2. For posting an address, under USPS guidelines, you would enter the primary street address, and then the addendum, if present, on the same line, or line above. The addendum, telling what the unit/suite/apt etc. number is, is a separate component, which would go on the same line, or line above. So, this one would, under their guidelines be "6420 Garners Ferry Rd, Suite P" , as you can verify here by just entering the street address. It will come back with all units allowable at that address:

    Having said that, some locales do sneak in hyphenated street numbers in their addresses. Not very common, but they do exist. And in the case of shopping centers, the numbering on the doors shown in this picture is pretty common--and the USPS would deliver to it--but it wouldn't be under their guidelines.
