The Not Watson’s Story – Growing up…my mom loved Watson’s Department Store…I mean loved it! It seemed as if every Saturday of my youth, was spent rummaging through the bargain-filled caverns of Watson’s Department Store on Market Square. We would all pile in the car and wait for the question…”Where are we headed?” We knew it was coming, and, as if we had any choice in the matter, our answer was invariably “Not Watson’s!” Then we’d all have a good laugh, and head straight downtown! Market Square definitely had a different vibe back then, but it was still a great place to gather with family and friends.
So…when the building you are sitting in became available, and we decided to put a new restaurant in it, the name was pretty much already decided. Call it destiny, a blast from the past, whatever you like…Not Watson’s was creating some pretty cool memories, long before we opened its doors as Market Square’s newest restaurant and watering hole. So why “not”? Eat…Drink…Enjoy!!
