Mayo's Suit City, 6539 Two Notch Road: July 2010   7 comments

Posted at 11:52 pm in Uncategorized

This was in The State last week. I had already seen the closing sign, but hadn't gotten around to getting any pictures. The story is kind of interesting as the owner says it's a dieing business, literally, as more and more of his customers pass on, and the new generation doesn't take up suits. I certainly never liked them and was lucky enough to get a job in an industry where they aren't mandatory. (So it was "Hold the mayo!" for me..)

According to the Mayo's web site, there's a store in Sumter as well. Since it didn't come up in the newspaper article, I would guess it's under different ownership.

UPDATE 27 August 2010 -- Well, it's gone:

  1. I remember very well in the 80s they had tv commercials with the slogan:

    "At Mayo's Suit City, We Got It Goin' ON!"

  4. Reverend Randolph is suprisingly correct. I distinctly remember that mayonnaise smell back in the 90s.

  5. Lewis actually mentioned the mayonnaise smell, but he’s right. It was like walking in to a jar of Hellmans!

  6. Maybe they used mayonnaise air fresheners/plug-ins. Ha!

  7. Maybe they did because I remember that mayonnaise smell too. I remember shopping there and random old African-American man (random, I thought at the time) asking me if I smelled the mayo. Went there a few years later and turned out he was part owner of the store. Odd thing for him to be proud about but I was always satisfied with my visits there.
