Plans have been announced to demolish a portion of the famous Snooky’s Restaurant and build a new Verizon Wireless store in its location. . . the ninth Wireless One Management, LLC’s, franchise and their first in Statesboro.
The project was begun about a year ago when Verizon contacted Athens based Wireless One about putting a store in Statesboro. After a thorough search of possible locations it was decided the old Snooky’s location on Tillman Road would be the best site.
The new store has the support of former Snooky’s owner Bruce Yawn who said his memories are of the people who patronized the restaurant and not the building itself.
Construction of the new Verizon Wireless store will begin after demolition is complete and the opening of he new 3,000 square foot structure is projected for around the first of October although it could be as early as mid September depending on the weather and other factors.
