For more than two hundred years, Jews have helped transform the state’s economy as peddlers, storekeepers, and industrialists, producing everything from flannel to Christmas tree ornaments, Gunk to office furniture, ginseng to underwear. Brand names established by North Carolina Jews include Family Dollar Stores, Heilig & Meyers Furniture, Brody Department Stores, Pic ‘n’ Pay Shoes, and Tanger Outlet Malls.
“Push, pluck, and perseverance.”
