Kim's Beauty Supply, 2526 Forest Drive: 2022   1 comment

Posted at 10:20 pm in closing






I'm a little unclear about whether Kim's ever actually operated in this space once used by Hanna Beauty Supply. For certain, they put their name on the marquee over the Hanna name, and it seems that for several months I saw a lot of cleanup and construction activity in the space, but I'm not sure I ever saw it open.

There is currently a permit on the door for more work, but the only name I saw was for the company doing the work, so I don't know if Kim's is still involved, or if it will be a new operation here.

As far as I can tell, Hanna Beauty Supply was open into 2021. I don't know if there was a change of ownership in the property, but the adjacent Forest Drive Market closed somewhere in the same timeframe.

At any rate, the place is now setting up to be a Kim's Beauty Supply, so perhaps it was just a matter of Kim's buying them out.

UPDATE 14 March 2023: Correct the name from "Hannah" to "Hanna", update tags.

This little off-brand convenience store has been here for as long as I can remember, though I seem to recall it used to be a bit more open-air. We never stopped there while I was growing up, but out of curiosity, I did stop by once when I started driving. What I recall most (I was a teenager) was a big wall-rack of magazines your mother wouldn't want you to look at. I noticed recently that both this and the adjacent ABC store seemed to be closed, and now there is a realty sign on the property (though the co-located beauty store is still open).
