North Carolina Newlyweds Skip Honeymoon, Open New Dollar Store Instead

Antonio and Andrea Williams say they postponed their honeymoon because they wanted to immediately start their first retail business Tryon Dollar Store. The store in Charlotte, North Carolina opened about 2 months after their wedding. After their we in October 2020, the Williams’ resumed their business plan. They couple decided to open a dollar store even during the pandemic as cleaning products and other household item have become more essential than ever according to Black Business.

Tryon Dollar Store opened in December 2020. The couple surveyed residents from several apartment complexes in the area so they would know what items to put in stock.

However, they weren’t able to anticipate the need for a larger space for the store. Fortunately, for the couple the art gallery next door moved out and they managed to lease the additional space. Along with expanding the store area from 1,400 square feet to 2,800 square feet.

The couple says they are hands-on with customer service and they sometimes go “from being owners to managers, and sometimes, employees.”

With their business schedules they still find time to unwind with a movie and signing karaoke while at home.

“You have to have the right partner who balances you out, one who you can collaborate with and have open dialogue with to bounce things off of each other, where you can work seamlessly together day in and day out,” Andrea told Q City Metro. Antonio and Andrea loves traveling and are looking forward to having their honeymoon one day.
