The town centre of Jackson in the State of Georgia, USA is where you'll find the remnants of downtown Hawkins. At the corner of 2nd Street and N 42nd Mulberry, you can locate the Radio Shack where Bob works, and also Joyce's workplace - Melvald’s General Store.

The set for Melvald's General Store was installed in the now empty pharmacy on the street corner.

The Radio Shack is right next door to Melvald's. Believe it or not, this 80s sign is actually real and not a prop for the show!

Across 2nd Street, in the middle of the square, is the unmistakeable Butts County Courthouse/Probate Court, also known as the Hawkins Library.

Outside the cinema Nancy pauses, a look of devastation on her face as she discovers what Steve has written.
