Snoozy's College Bookstore
With help from his family, Jones opened the first store on three joined lots on 11th Avenue South near the UAB campus. It was named for Jones' father George "Snoozy" Jones, who earned his nickname in infancy. The store was an outgrowth of Snoozy's business of selling sportswear to college bookstores around the South.
The store later added locations at Jefferson State Community College's two campuses in Center Point and Shelby County, as well as a Snoozy's Kids in Crestline Village and another store in Hanceville. The Center Point location has since closed, and the Hanceville store was sold to an employee. The Shelby County location now carries a full line of teacher and parent school supplies under the name Snoozy's School Tools as well as college materials for Jeff State students.
In 2002 the main Snoozy's store at UAB relocated to a new building at 1321 10th Avenue South as its old location was bought for an expansion to Glen Iris Elementary School. The building also houses a Subway sandwich shop. Snoozy's is the official retail outlet for UAB's Gang Green and the UAB National Alumni Society.
