GRANTS PASS, Ore. — A historic shop in Grants Pass could be closing their doors if they don’t find a buyer, but after NBC5’s story on Blind George’s Popcorn Newsstand aired last week, owner Jack Smith said half a dozen potential buyers have stepped up.
Blind George’s has been serving the community for nearly a century. After six months of being up for sale, Smith says there’s no deal just yet, but they have extended their deadline.
If the shop doesn’t sell by Jan. 15, the doors will close for good.
