Beach Road Chicken Dinners Jacksonville FL
It's place as a Jacksonville landmark restaurant is well-earned. If you could travel back 75 years to 1939, as the country was just coming out of the Great Depression, Beach Road Chicken would not look radically differently than it does today. Though over the decades, it has expanded (not a whole lot), and they still have lines-out-the-door on some nights. And their take-out business has practically overtaken their dine-in crowds. Hard to believe that in 1939, "take out" food was seen as a novelty that no one was sure would really catch on.
Congratulations to Mike and Machelle on their new home in Fort Caroline! Thank you for allowing the Bloom Realty Team to be a part of your home buying experience. We had a chance to sit down with the happy home owners, as Mike talks about his great experience with Bloom Realty.
Arlington was one of the first areas in the United States visited by Europeans; it was the site of the French Fort Caroline, built in 1564-1565. French explorer René Goulaine de Laudonnière, led a contingent of 200 new settlers to Florida. They built Fort Caroline atop a high river vantage point now called “St. Johns Bluff.” But the colony was beset by hunger, Indian attacks, and mutiny. Even so, it looked like an attractive option for the Spanish authorities who considered it a challenge to their control over the area.
Enter the daring Spaniard Don Pedro Menéndez de Avilés, who violently evicted the French. The French retreated 35 miles south, where they established the first settlement of St. Augustine. Today, Fort Caroline is a National Memorial park, and a great day trip, no more than 30 minutes from just about any spot in the city.
More than 30 Jacksonville consignment shops have pooled their interests to create a mega-consignment store. It’s the “Mall of America” of consignment stores. The bargain hunter’s mothership, with 57,000 square feet of upscale resale stuff. From cars to curios, here’s how it works: The owner evaluates an item, and it goes to the store for 90 days. The first 30 days, it stays at that starting price, reduced 15 percent after those 30 days and another 15 percent for the final 30 days. If it doesn’t sell in 90 days, the owner pulls the item. This is a very wise plan, this 90-day sales method. It prevents the store from ever resembling an upscale version of Hoarders.
Store hours: Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. Phone: (904) 855-1300.
