    Rocky Mt is gone. They had a halfway decent mall but all of the stores are leaving. It will be like the Wilson Mall soon, closed with knocked out windows. Have to go to Greenville or Raleigh to a mall I guess. With Wilson and Rocky Mt both on 95 and halfway between the Triangle and Greenville, they should both be growing-not losing populations
