Archive for the ‘paging’ tag
I had to carry a beeper once in the 80s for a few months. It was an unpleasant experience, but not one I thought anyone still had. To my surprise, there are still half a dozen or more companies in the Paging section of the Yellow Pages, although it looks like there will be one less in next year's book.
UPDATE 17 January 2015: Changed the closing date from 2014 to to 2013 and added TransSouth Financial based on the comments.
This vacancy is in the little strip mall across the street from Dutch Square, and just north of Palmetto Fine Cleaners.
You can see that the marquee is kept water-tight by reversing a sign for Integrity Tax & Bookkeeping. As far as I can tell, they are still around at 1230 Broad River Road (and in this year's phonebook) after having moved to another Broad River Road location in-between. I'm not sure when they would have been here, but it was probably a good while ago as googling for 1724 turns up Arch Paging instead. I think they have been gone a good while as well though, as in the phonebooks I have available at home, they are listed in the Feb 1997 one, but not the Feb 2007 edition. Of course, it's probably not a coincidence that the pager market essentially disappeared during that interval..
