Also on this site was Herb Davis's bicycle shop, which some long-time Ardmore residents may remember.

Patch user recalls:

That bike shop was owned by the late Herb Davis. His shop was so disorganized, but he knew where everything was! He was a very nice guy, and also a member of my church (First Baptist Ardmore). It was in the building on the far right, left side. Bought my bike there years ago. Still have it.
