I visited a Bi-Lo today in South Carolina and hereby take back anything bad I said about Greenville Food Lions. Good grief, that was like shopping in a third world country.

Yeah, it's crazy with the mattress stores.
Here in Winston-Salem, we have two small buildings going up near Hanes Mall. One is an outparcel in front of Lowe's, the other was the former location of a gas station. Turns out one will be a Mattress Firm and the other a Sleepy's.

Though on a related note, I always thought "Mattress Firm" was a clever name.

East Carolina University has a new degree program to prepare students for careers in forensic science and crime-scene investigation units.
The Bachelor of Science degree in multidisciplinary studies with a focus on forensic science will teach students how to perform biological, chemical and physical analysis on crime-scene evidence.

Just saw where Wilmington is getting a New Performing Arts center downtown as part of CFCC's emerging Fine Arts program.

The pictures look quite impressive. What I wouldn't give for Greenviille to have this 1,500 seat Center in the downtown sector or in the city in general! Hopefully someone in Greenville will take a look at our neighbors to the south and see what could be done to get one in Greenville.

CFCC Performing Arts Center

We could certainly use some more culture with a performing arts center in the downtown area. I thought there was something in the works to get the old theatre next to Windslow's updated and in working order. What was the last on this?

I believe they are still in the planning stages for that theater near Winslow's. But that center would only hold 100-150 people at most.

Learned last night that ECU has plans of building a new Performing Arts Center on 1st Street. But it may be another 10 years before it's even put into motion. Once that comes downtown, it will be a much better place to be.

I saw this recently & have forgotten about it. I'm not sure if it's open yet or not. If it ism horrible marketing job thus far. They really need a billboard or something to get the word out. It could be successful if it's not a piece or crap inside since there is nothing like that in town.
