Cary, Store Owner Compromise Over Pink Paint
Posted June 12, 2003
CARY, N.C. — The Town of Cary and a business owner have reached a compromise over the color of her store.
Kim Perry, the owner of "Not Just Country," has agreed to repaint her pink store -- to a lighter shade of the same color.
The standoff began last month when the town council told Perry her store violated a town ordinance.
According to the town's commercial zoning code, a building's exterior colors should blend with surrounding businesses. Town leaders said in a downtown setting of beige, cream and white, pink does not belong.
Perry said she will start repainting next week.
