My mother bought her clothes there. She recalls the store fondly and says you could "just tell" when someone wore an outfit from Mary Rice

According to the October 1959 Hamlet/Rham phone book, Mary Rice Apparel was located at 38 Main Street, phone # 308. CP&L was located at 29 Main Street. Does anyone remember the name of the businesses either side of Mary Rice Apparel? I'm trying to place where it was.

Just down from the Movies, beside the pool room.

The Mary Rice building(now Cafe on Main) is not beside the Pool Room. The building between the two was recently sold by Steve Rabb. Ron Mayo had the Ice Cream shop in there. My grandmother owned the Mary Rice building until we sold it to the person that opened a restaurant in there before Ron.
