The Rasor and Clardy Company Building is a well-preserved and largely unaltered early twentieth century vernacular commercial building. The brick building, constructed ca. 1914 for the Rasor and Clardy Company, is representative of the prevalent mode of commercial building design. The building exemplifies this form, with two sheltered entrances recessed in the fašade and flanking plate-glass display area on both sides. The fašade of the building is articulated with classical pilasters and an entablature. The building is noteworthy for the quality of the workmanship and the materials, including the metalwork, the stained glass and glass tile, the mosaic tiles of the entranceways, the wooden coffered ceilings of the display windows, and the pressed metal interior cornices and ceilings. The brickwork of the building is also noteworthy, with three different grades of brick utilized. In addition, the store is significant as the most intact early twentieth-century commercial building remaining in Mullins. Listed in the National Register August 3, 1984.
