A. Unfortunately, we have yet to strike gold on this one. After investigating this matter with local historians and business people, the location of the elusive Su-Ann Shoes goose remains a mystery.
Neither Janet Davidson nor Barbara Rowe of the Cape Fear Museum knew of the retail prop’s whereabouts.
Former Wilmington councilman Jim Quinn, a commercial real estate salesman, brokered a deal for the property at the corner of Front and Princess streets, after Sue-Ann Shoes closed in 1998.
Quinn suggested that information might be available from previous owner John Malejohn, who once owned the Deluxe Café on Market Street.
Staff at the restaurant said Malejohn has not owned the business in nine years and could provide no contact information for him.
So we seem to have scored a big non-golden goose egg.
If anyone has any information on the Sue-Ann Shoes goose or can tell us a little more about what it was, please let us know in the Comments below.
