business spotlight United Gift Shop

In the mid-90s, Jessie and Joy Thornton bought a building on Tennessee Street and opened United Karate Studio. For several years, one side of the building remained empty. A friend of Joy’s suggested opening a “junk” store, and in 1998, that’s exactly what she did. The shop stayed open for 5 years, but when Joy became a grandmother in 2003, she decided she wanted to devote time to being “Granny”.
