Here is an old Coca-Cola bottling plant located in Elberton Georgia. The plant closed sometime in the 70's and is now being used as a church. Elberton is known for it's Granite, so it was only fitting for the plants sign to be carved in granite. Many thanks to Doug Harvey for info. 03-06

The Fifty-Fifty store is owned by Tom Tucker in Salisbury, NC. It's called the 50/50 because the shelving units are on a center swivel and can turn around to reveal different items. 06-06

The "Grand Ol' Hatchery"--a quaint play on Grand Ole Opry, in Dickson, TN. Novel idea, turning a feed store into a music venue. The Grand Old Hatchery is located along Main Street in Dickson. 06-06
