Were you sad when Rich's departed? Do you remember Cumberland Mall in its glory days? Did you find "everything under the sun" at Richway or buy your cereal at Big Star? Do the names Davison's, Levy's, Kirven's, Kessler's or J.B. White ring a bell?
My friend J.T. has created Georgia Retail Memories, a blog dedicated to photographing, preserving, documenting and capturing what has been lost in terms of retail in Georgia (with some content from Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina and South Carolina). Anything retail is fair game here including malls, discount stores, catalog retailers, small tenants, restaurants, drug stores and fast food places.
Anybody who visits J.T.'s site is free to contribute information, photographs or anything else they'd like to make this site even more interesting and informative.
He states, "I want this to be as fascinating for everybody else here as this is to me, and this will give me a chance to feature the highlights of my work in researching and photographing so many of these places I grew up with that now have either died or changed drastically."
It's a wonderful website, and I highly suggest checking it out.
