A Fond Farewell

Fayettevillians rally to remember, raise funds


In an age where nearly every grocery store is owned by a corporate entity -- and they all look alike -- a true neighborhood grocery store like the CV's on the corner of Lafayette and Dickson stands out. That's why, when the news broke that the quirky store is closing later this month, many Fayettevillians expressed dismay. The store has, over the course of roughly 50 years, managed to retain its unusual charm through various incarnations that included a Safeway, IGA and a Saver's Club. And it has been an integral part of the lives of many who lived in the area.
