The Sally Corp. facility always seemed like it would be a fun, interesting place to visit. Have there ever been any discussions to increase its presence as a downtown destination such as heavier promotions of its factory tours or by constructing an amusement type ride at its location?

I think they may be planning more of these articles. Cause a few months ago they had another one where they featured Maxwell House, Load King and Swisher Sweets, among others. Vistakon (or now known as Johnson and Johnson Vision Care) may pop up in the future.

Really enjoyed the part on Holmes Stamp & Sign. Nice YouTube video. Also interesting how the former truck driver took over after son retired. That kind of succession rarely works out, which makes it even more fascinating that this one obviously did very well.
