300-302 South Driver - to the immediate right, looking south-southwest, 1980

300-302 South Driver was built in the early 1940s, and initially housed the "National 5 cent to $1 store." By 1950, prices had risen, and the name had changed to the "Marion's 5 cent to $5 store." By 1960, it was simply called "Marion's Stores."

National 5 cent to 1.00 Store. 1-story brick building with 2 stores, each with a recessed double wood door and wood transom across both storefronts. The building corner at Ashe is beveled. The metal display windows may be a later addition. Not on 1937 SM. 1945 CD: National 5 cent to 1.00 store. Now occupied by Holy Praise and Worship Church.
