A Good Read: Socks


     A business success story from North Alabama in a place once called the Sock Capital of The world. (Note, this story is behind The NY Times pay wall. You can read a limited number of stories free and then they close the wall on you.)
 




     I remember an NPR story years ago about Fort Payne and socks.  It told of the slow and then not-so-slow decline in manufacturing in the town, and visited the local Wal-Mart where lots of locals were buying socks...cheaper socks made in China and Indonesia and shipped to Fort Payne
