I grew up in Beaufort and I remember my grandma ran the old Beaufort Inn. Every weekend we would stay at the inn with her. My memory is that every Saturday, we would go on Bay Street and shop at the old Belk, have lunch at John Cross Tavern then go into the old Luther’s pharmacy and buy a bottled coke for 25 cents. I always got to pick out strawberry licorice. That was pretty much a weekend ritual for us for years.
