Just a couple of days ago I learned that Candy will be reopening Albert Styron's Store this summer. I might have been the last islander to hear the news. It seems that everyone else knew about it even before it was reported in our local newspaper, "The Ocracoker."
The store, located "Down Point" not far from the Ocracoke lighthouse, has been closed for about a year and a half. Candy will be sharing the space with her sister, Valerie, who runs "Village Print" in the rear of the store. A partition has been built between the two businesses.
On your next visit to the island take a stroll down Lighthouse Road and stop in to see what Candy has to offer. She will be open 10 - 5 in the off-season and 9 - 6 in the summer.
