First Time Seeing our Store name in Our Store!

We are so excited!  Today was the first day we got to see our store name in our new store.  It's only a temporary sign while we complete the inside of the store and our actual store sign is installed.  Tomorrow I will drive to AmericasMart to buy merchandise for the store.

Just A Little Panache is in the News!

Over the past month, we have decided to open a Fashion Accessories and Gift Boutique.  We are opening our store in the new Traemoor ShoppingVillage which will also house the new Harris Teeter.  We are very excited start this journey and look forward to opening our doors in November 2012!  Yesterday, we had our first press news in the Fayetteville Observer.  

Business Buzz: Harris Teeter on Rockfish sets opening date

Matt Leclercq
Harris Teeter confirmed a Sept. 19 opening for its Rockfish Road store near Jack Britt High School.
Dennis Brewer will be store manager. He used to run the Raeford Road store before transferring to open the Southern Pines Harris Teeter about a year ago.

The new 53,000-square-foot Hope Mills store will be open 24 hours a day with a pharmacy and a Starbucks.

Other tenants in the Traemoor Village Shopping Center include The Mellow Mango frozen yogurt store and a High Cotton consignment shop, which we previously reported. We learned last week of more leases signed or in negotiations, according to developer Fox Commercial Properties of Greenville, S.C. Easy Wash Dry Cleaners is signed, along with a Viva the Bean coffee shop that has most of its leasing paperwork complete. Negotiations are under way for a Hallmark.

Other tenants in various stages of lease agreements are Just a Little Panache, which would be a gift shop, and Naturally Unleashed, a pet nutrition center.

About six tenant spaces are still available, along with two out parcels just under an acre each.
The Sept. 19 ribbon-cutting is scheduled for 8 a.m.

Hilton Head, SC

We met The Burgio clan for a long weekend in Hilton Head, SC.  We had a wonderful time swimming at the pool and going down the slide.  Tori was nervous at first, but a sweet girl said she would give her a "Queen of the Slide" button if she went down and she did!  Then there was no stopping her since all she wanted to do was keep going down the water slide.  During the week, the guys also went paddle boarding.  Mike even did a headstand on the paddle board in the water!  Impressive for sure!  For Ashley's birthday we rented a sailboat and all enjoyed the ride.  We had a great fire works show to end our long weekend.  Good times with great company.

Playing Disney Headbanz game.  What a hoot!
