This is my inaugural Thursday Doors post! After enjoying the photos of others FOR.EV.ER. I FINALLY got my act together and posted my own! Check it out!
I’ve driven past this shop a thousand times. It’s a shoe store in a teeny town it seems that time forgot. The florist nearby has been in business for decades, though. Will flowers ever go out of favor (or will big box stores find a way to outsell them)? The pizza shop seems to change owners weekly, but it remains (and probably will). The laundromat is closed — I guess nearby residents managed to all get in-house washer/dryers.
He sold family shoes. He then switched to specialty shoes (work boots, ortho).
“I wonder how he stays in business,” I thought every time I passed.
The other day, passing through again, it seems he can’t.
Now, he’ll sell no shoes. It’s closing time. Another mom and pop shop bites the dust.
