An outstanding independent retail grocery business was that of Jack Cherry, a fancy grocer. Established in 1919, this business each year claimed its part of the business and steadily forged ahead. Three floors of the store were used for display and storage. The largest retail produce business in eastern Carolina was a part of the Cherry enterprise. An excellent refrigeration system was a part of the equipment.
