Here's a video clip:
Elizabeth Edwards called the store a family endeavor. On hand for the opening was her assistant manager and 11-year-old daughter Emma Claire, along with John Edwards."I do more moving furniture than anything else," John Edwards said. "This is Elizabeth's deal, but everybody in the family is trying to help support her."
Update: The Durham Herald Sun has more about Elizabeth and her purchasing methodology, and also how she was able to locate the store.
Next year while I am in NC for a meeting, I hope to go visit the store and catch up with some former campaign volunteers.
