Alumna Felicia Evans Long Celebrates Grand Opening
December 3, 2012 - Shaw graduate Felicia Evans Long '94 and her husband Tim Long celebrated the opening of their new confectionery store Sweet Candy Café, in Lumberton, NC.
The December 1 grand opening of Sweet Candy Café was delayed by an October 10, 2012 fire that destroyed several local businesses in downtown Lumberton, including the Longs' previous retail space located at 310 N. Elm Street. The Longs sustained significant property loss in the fire, but were able to rebuild with the help of the Lumberton community and building owner, Richard "Dick" Taylor.
Sweet Candy Café sells old-fashioned candies from the past and present. It is also the sister company to Sweet Events and Planning, LLC, Long's event planning business.
