    Trying to attract peopld from VA and SC...good luck. But wait! How about a new theme. Maybe we can attract those people who buy Gucci products as a status symbol.

    "Come visit North Carolina, our sales tax is higher than both your states--our gas prices are higher too. Visit the new House of Gucci--North Carolina"
