Herritage Landing Businesses Welcome Customers

One new business and another with a re-designed space welcomed customers at opening events August 22, 2014 in downtown Kinston.
The new business—Sweetiepies Cupcakery at 211 N. Herritage—opened its doors to a long line of customers waiting to taste its goodies and nibble under a new street-side pergola. The owners and managers, Terry Eason and daughter Kendi Davis, met their goal to have their new store open by end of August.

Instead of cutting the ribbon, Sweetiepies Cupcakery owners and friends cut the first cupcake at opening ceremonies on Herritage Street, August 22nd, 2014.

The next-door business—Stitches & Stuff with a door connecting with the bakery and another new front door—joined in the celebration, inviting customers into its newly designed quarters.

Owners Sue Shelton and Nancy Sauls held court as customers and on-lookers oohed and aahed at the array of colorful monograms and related items in the new location.

The opening ceremony was organized by Amanda Conner of the Lenoir County Economic Development department.

Owners of Stitches & Stuff with friends welcome visitors to the newly designed space on Herritage Street at an opening event next door to Sweetiepies Cupcakery, Friday, August 22nd, 2014.



These two photos illustrate scope of remediation project underway by Duke Energy at South Herritage Street site in Kinston, cleaning up underground damage to a 2-acre site once occupied by a manufactured gas plant. Another site along the Neuse River is also included in the major clean-up project.



"The vision of Pride of Kinston, Inc. is a downtown on the banks of the Neuse River that serves as the gateway to Eastern North Carolina. Our appreciation of history guides our future and promotes the magic to grow business, recreation, and the arts."
