In the 1980s, I was a kid living in Southeastern Kentucky. When it was time for Christmas shopping, back-to-school shopping, or a fun weekend trip, my family didn't go to Lexington, Knoxville, or Cincinnati. We went to Kingsport. For far longer than I care to admit, I thought Kingsport was on par with a New York City or Chicago in terms of size and offerings. I have many great, foundational memories about Kingsport. I still fondly think of your city quite often.

One great memory involves a lemonade shop in Fort Henry Mall. It was around in the early- to mid-80s. I think it was called Bob's Lemonade Stand, or something like that. I believe it had blue and white tiles and was on the second floor, but I can't recall what was around it.

Does anyone else remember this shop? Was it called Bob's, and was it a chain or locally owned? I have no doubt that a certain kid from the mountains of Kentucky thought the best lemonade on the planet came from that location. If you could tell me anything about it, I would greatly appreciate it.

Additionally, if there are websites or online information about Fort Henry Mall in the 1980s (lineup of tenants, pictures, interesting facts), please feel free to them.

Thank you.
