Both assistant managers are from Havelock. One, Angela Murphy, is a military spouse who has lived in Havelock for six years.

"I’m delighted. I love this company," she said. "I’m excited to open up and get new customers in here. This is something that this town has needed and I think we’ll do well here. We have a mix of people who have lived here all their lives along with military so it’s a good mix. We have all walks of life."

Sullivan said Goody’s strives to serve its customers and stresses interactions with those who walk through the doors.

"Our goal is to know our customers," she said. "When someone comes in, I want to know their name, their family and what’s going on in their life and what they like so I can help them. We want that personal connection with our customers to keep them coming back and feeling like home when they come in."

One of those greeting customers will be Jae Smith, of Havelock, whose husband is a military police officer at Cherry Point.

"I’ll be helping out customer service basically," she said. "It’s my forte helping people find what they need. There are military wives here that are looking for specific things, and me being a military wife, I understand. I think I can relate to the shoppers."

She said she was excited and looked forward to seeing a lot of people for the grand opening.
