GB Shoe, 421 Bush River Road Suite 3001: January 2014 (open again)   5 comments

Posted at 11:35 pm in Uncategorized





GB Shoe is currently closed for renovations, and unlike many places claiming such and then vanishing, there actually are renovations underway. In fact, if things go to schedule, they should be open again next week.

GB is in the old Dutch Square A&P building, and as part of the Dutch Square property, has a really odd address. We are to think of it as 421 Bush River Road, when the actual store has no access to Bush River, and does have access to Broad River!

By the way, does anyone know what GB stands for (or stood for)?

UPDATE 20 February 2014 -- Open again, as promised, and as reported by commenter Andrew:

  1. @ted - this may answer your question about what GB stands for. I found this on a site called The blurb from the website states:

    We have 11 different retail locations in 5 states in the southeastern United States; Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. What do we mean when we say "GB Shoes is Houser Shoes?" Until the year 2000 we were totally Houser Shoes. Gary Houser and his daughter, Beth Houser Ratcliffe, wanted to have the biggest store in the area and thus, G.B. Shoe Warehouse was created. There are now 8 G.B. Shoe stores and 3 Houser Shoes, plus

    Sounds about right, doesn't it??

  5. On the afternoon of Feb. 8th I noticed now open being on the building...I therefore must confirm that this place is back in if Phillips Edison can find some folks to bring some new life into Dutch Square (it wouldn't be hard for me to list 15 stores that Dutch Square has lost since 2008, several of which have featured here)
