Pic 'N Pay Shoes / Top Nail, 9710 Two Notch Road Suite 5: 2000   5 comments

Posted at 12:07 am in Uncategorized

Well, it's back to Park Centre at Two Notch & Polo Roads for this former Pic 'N Pay Shoes. You can pretty much make out the label-scar with the name if you look at it with charity, though there seems to be some issue with the street address. The Feb 1997 Bellsouth phonebook lists the Pic 'N Pay at 9714 Two Notch while the pasted letters clearly mark this unit as "9710 STE 5". However, Park Centre apparently encompasses 9710 through 9714, so it's all the same property whether they may have moved down a unit at some point.

They won't have moved after 2000 though, as the whole Pic 'N Pay chain filed for bankruptcy in March of that year. Apparently this was their second trip into Chapter 11, after one in 1996, and this one ended up in liquidation (and selling a lot of assets to Shoe Show).

Google says that 9710 #5 was also Top Nail nail salon at some point. I would say after Pic 'N Pay as nail salons seem to specialize in making a go out of failing properties.

  1. anyone know what causes the 'label scar' such as the one shown in the picture seen here...

  2. It could be remnants of whatever was used to install the sign on the building or artifacts of UV radiation on the building paint??

  3. I think the label scar comes from the paint fading except where the sign is, but could also result from dirt that accumulates behind the sign staining, or possibly corrosion from the sign materials, but my bet is on fading.

  4. I believe that the Barbizon modeling school was also right next door to the nail place here.
