Denise Martin remembers Grant's Shoe Store in Liberty, KY
Comments re photo 70632 Liberty KY still has downtown shoe sales about Boot & Shoe Station, Western Apparel Store, 646 Campbellsville St, Liberty, KY owned by Greg & Denise Martin.
Greg and Denise Martin writes:
We had a visitor in our store today by the name of Billy Grant, who used to own Grant's Shoe Store many years ago here in Liberty, KY. He lives in Columbia now and informed my wife that he had read an article about our store in your magazine; we would like to say many thanks for your story and the picture. As a child I grew up in Lexington, but my parents were from Casey Co, and many times we were at Grant's to do our shoe buying there in downtown Liberty. I agree, you do not see the small businesses in rural towns like you did 35 yrs or more ago but some of us are still around trying to make a go at it. All smalltown business owners appreciate support from local shoppers. I know we sure do.Thanks. - It was great to see your (apparently) thriving store, which, though modern, called back yesterday. We were wondering if Liberty has special tax incentives to help businesses on and near the Square. Maybe a reverse property tax to actually offer a stipend to those who occupy buildings and keep the downtown alive, and a markedly higher property tax on any unoccupied property? If you know, let us know. And best wishes bringing back a tradition. - Ed Waggener By the way: Love the street signs in Liberty.
