In This Issue (Nov. '15)

As we near our 15th anniversary in January, it’s only fitting we take a trip down Memory Lane. When the first issue of Cabarrus Magazine was published, Bill Clinton was enjoying his last few days in the White House, 9/11 was still nine months away and Concord Mills Mall had just opened 14 months before.

Looking back can accomplish several things. It can make us yearn for days gone by, it can take us back to a time when we were with loved ones no longer around, and it can take us back to a childhood where things were simpler and carefree. I think it can also show us how far we’ve come.

In our infancy, Pillowtex, CT Communications, First Charter Bank and Philip Morris were the corporate giants based in Cabarrus County. Now, they’re all gone – either sold, acquired, moved or bankrupt. In their place now exist companies of the future – like Alevo and Amazon – along with a thriving tourism industry. And a then-relatively unknown coffee company called S&D has grown to become one of the country’s largest coffee and tea suppliers to the food industry.

The nostalgia attached to these changes makes us teary and proud, all at the same time. That’s why we wanted to visit with Lionel Trains, Classic Art Gift Gallery and the NC Music Hall of Fame this month. All three bring back memories at a time of year when remembering hangs thick in the air. So, as we enter the holiday season, let’s reminisce.
