We are so thankful for how our grand opening day unfolded, thanks to you! The ribbon-cutting ceremony was attended by our own Lillington Chamber of Commerce and several of our amazing kitchen and dining room staff. We’re so happy that the ORIGINAL Mr. Howard Avrette made sure to attend the ceremony; it was an honor to have him present for that moment. And who else decided to pop in for lunch? Why none other than Mr. David Avrette! We’ve known David ever since we started renting the river shack for Cape Fear River Adventures back in 2012. He’s been a great support to us over these years and of our family’s businesses. His friendship is another thing we are thankful for!
During the day, we gave away 20% off coupons and had such a nice crowd of folks come in and eat delicious food.
The evening brought fantastic acoustic entertainment by a duo from the band, DL Token. The band is based in nearby Sanford, NC. We’re glad they’re close by because we want more DL Token! The music was played indoors, due to our record-breaking cold week here in the South. The set-up couldn’t have been more perfect! Two talented musicians playing an intimate evening acoustic set for our customers was a nice and relaxing way to conclude Mermaid Point’s grand opening.
With this day of grand opening behind us, I feel it’s safe to say that it was a success! The Mermaid Point family is proud to serve this community and bring something a little new and special to the Lillington mix! With y’all’s immeasurable support and patronage, we hope to be around for a long time 🙂
Happy new year! -Megan
