Cary, Store Owner Compromise Over Pink Paint

Posted June 12, 2003 10:38 a.m. EDT

— 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.
