Shoe Town, 6790 Garners Ferry Road: 2012   4 comments

Posted at 12:02 am in Uncategorized




As far as I can tell, the opening of I-77 hasn't really helped Landmark Square much. It's nice they got one of the new Krispy Kremes, but the rest of the place still could use a good makeover.

Looking back in the Feb 1997 phonebook, says that this little shoe storefront was founded some time after that (though there was a "Shoe City" on Garners Ferry back then..) and lasted until this year.

  1. In the last 30 years, out of 56, my observation has been that NO business with the word "Town" or "World" in their name last very long. Even Food Lion had the foresight to change their name from "Food Town".

  3. Maybe Disney World would be an exception.

  4. Food Town had to change their name because they wanted to open stores in an area that already had established Food Town stores. They chose "Lion" because they'd only have to change 2 letters on their signs.
