    NOI Import Store Grand Opening 1972​
    During the 1960s, in Chicago, The Nation of Islam opened Temple No 2 Cleaners on 63rd Street, the Temple No 2 Grocery and Restaurant was remodeled into the Shabazz Grocery and Restaurant. The NOI acquired the Shabazz Barber Shop and Cleaners and opened Temple No 2 Clothiers. The Import Store opened October 1972 and offered a full line of Men's, Ladies and children's fashions at affordable prices.

    Great post!...Thanks for sharing!


    I wonder if this business is still open today....Perhaps someone in Chicago can tell us if it's still in existence.
