Inscription.  
In 1953, M.D. Goodfriend, Jr. (owner M. Goodfriend Store) and Simon Monen (owner Sterling Dress Shop), opened the Athens Outlet Store at this location. The store specialized in selling discount apparel and used the old jail building located on Hornsby Street as the warehouse.

The store moved to Congress Parkway in 1981 and the name was later changed to Goody's. In 1990 the headquarters moved from Athens to Knoxville.

A corporate name that is known throughout the South and Midwest as a popular chain of brand name family clothing was birthed in this building in Athens.
 
Erected by Main Street Athens Project.
