I 4 Along The Way j ii,t %tt ?1yjL By Emily Kllletfe f Kenansville hr s seen the opening of several new businesses since the first of this year. In the old editions of the DUPLIN TIMES, there are articles about the opening of many businesses throughout the county. Many of the businesses are still in operation ' inila.. Looking through the 19S1 book of DUPLIN TIMES, a story about the opening of a Pink Hill business appeared in the August 30 issue. The story was about W.H. Jones and the article is reprinted below. W.H. Jowes Company Opens Now Store In Ptnk Hfflt Herb, rf Jones la Growing The W.H. Jones and Company - store in Pink Hill celebrated the opening of its new addition last Saturday with the greatest sale in the history of the town, according to Herbert Jones, general manager of the firm. The new addition has been completed, joining together the old store building and the back building. For many years a vacant lot has stood between the two and now " Jones' handsome brick structure fills in the gap and adds to the attrac ? uveness of Pink Hill's business ? section. The new store houses dry goods and notions in the front and a self-service grocery and market in the rear. The old part houses the . hardware and appliances depart ment and the offices. The hardware had formerly been located across the street in the building. Murphy Bostic is the acting manager of the store. W.H. Jones and Company was ; organized as a partnership and opened for business in June 1932. Herbert Jones moved to Pink Hill two years prior to that. Other partners in the business are Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Mary Tapp Jenkins and L.B. Jenkins of Kinston. The Jenkins-Jones partnership has shown steady growth and expansion since it first was organized. In 1941 they opened the Jenkins-Jones - Motor Company in Kinston of which Mr. Jones is manager and in 1945 they bought the New Carolina Ware house and in 1946 the Eagle Ware house in Kinston. Mr. Jones also is an extensive landowner in Jones and Lenoir counties, operating many farms with a total of 275 acres of tobacco He is the largest single I landowner in Jones County, having a total of 3,700 acres there. He owns 700 acres in Lenoir County. Mr. Jones, Herbert as he is known by the writer, was born and reared in the Moss Hill section of Lenoir County, the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. W.W. Jones. His younger days were spent around Moss Hill and Seven Springs where he pin-hooked tobacco and speculated in real estate. Mr. Jones thought he saw a great future in the farm supply business in Pink Hill and decided to stake his lot there. He and Mrs. Jones own a handsome colonial-type hom< there and he commutes daily between Pink Hill and Kinston attending to his business interests. Our hats are off to Herbert and Mrs. Jones and we wish them many more years of success and happi ness. * Locol Craftsmen In 1985 Expo A record number of craftsmen will be demonstrating and selling their crafts when Craft Expo '85 opens its doors on July 6 and 7 at the Crystal Coast Civic Center in Morehead City.
