Coming up Roses: Store with long local history to hold grand reopening

A group of former and current employees gathered recently for this photo. They are (from left) Margaret Fox, who worked for more than 50 years at all three locations in Marion; Office Manager Terry Compton; Barbara Holland, who worked at the snack bar; Shirley Jimison, who started her work at Roses while she was still in school in the 1950s and continued until her retirement in 2000; and Edna McFalls, who is a 40-year employee.
