Piccolo has been one of the greatest additions to downtown in the last 5 years. An absolute unique and friendly atmoshpere and the most interesting place in the county.

I thought Jolie moved to MH(?). Where's Happy Dog in the list? Where's Tastebuds? Where's Wells Fargo? Where's Belmont Soda Shoppe? The list is incomplete and appears to be a set up. No vote for me.

What the heck is demi beads and who made this one sided list that leaves out Cherubs and many others? Not deserving of a vote.

Cherubs is on the list. And I believe the poll only allows for 10 options. Better still I think the vote lies with the amount of business being done at any of these places.

I don't think half the places listed turn a profit. I can't imagine how some of them stay in business, but I'll vote for cherubs because they have the most dedicated employees in town.

It is posts like this that only prove to show how popular these particular stores are and how truly ill informed and tainted this poster is. I think most of Belmont knows who this poster is and I would venture to guess that his business at his soda shop will continue to suffer for these kinds of remarks. People see right through this uselsss attempt at sabotaging other businesses and it is not only classless, futile, and transparent, but it will also reflect on your business 'ethics' and personal lack of a moral code. And yes that means you Mr Caldwell. The Lavecchia family is one of many who are very very disgusted with your antics. Best of luck to you

This post is a crock and clearly directed at one specific family in this town. From where we sit, the businesses referred to seem very successful and success does not happen because the business is owned and operated by anyone other than fair minded, hard working, and tenacious individuals. To pretend not to know the names of these stores is an affront to our intelligence. There is competition in all types of enterprise, and it is that concept that makes all businesses stay on point. To be naive enough to think that there will never be changes within organizations is short sighted and implies extreme lack of information and any decent business sense. I applaud anyone who is brave enough to start his or her own business and to remain focused and dedicated to what took them to where they are now. To bad mouth anyone, any business, or any particular thing will always put the recipient at an advantage, as it instills curiosity and is always always good for business. Take stock in your life, sir, and keep your side of the street clean and respectable. You may learn something from these business owners, who seem to work very hard, everyday, and are well respected.

"AND THE PLACE DOESN"T STINK LIKE OLD PEOPLE YA-YA"

WOW! Are you serious? What the hell are antiques supposed to smell like? Polyehtelene? Or some other fabricated piece of shit that people call furniture these days! But, there again you were not only insulting the store but the owner as well. What a pathetic individual.

I wonder what you smell like, OH wait a minute, I just stepped in it!

You ignorant ass wipe. Who the hell do you think financed Pickers you idiot. Gastonia is all over LaVecchia to come downtown and he's got two other projects in the works. That probably one of the many reasons they wont let you in that place either you jerk.

Why did they open another ice cream place in the train station? My children and wife love it and said she is the same woman who had the ice cream shop at the General Store. The new one is a little different but seems to be doing very well. does she own both?

Second Fiddle is a really interesting shop if you enjoy cool and unusual things. Clothing, antiques, jewelry and all kinds of cool WW II things. Cherubs is the best little place to eat in town and Jolie is pricey but the girls love it.For dessert or some good music and a fun place I like the new Ice Cream Shop. Sammys is a town staple and will always be on the top ten list. The General Store has lost its appeal because theres nothing there anymore but the building is an attraction to people just because its been here for forever. Piccolo probably cant be beat as far as upscale selection and really cool and rare merchandise, but its a little pricey. Studio 33 should have made the list.

I like Cherub's too but wish they were open a little later. Its always clean and the people are friendly. Caravan is a good place to hang out and people watch and the bakery next door has great sweet treats. The Stowe Mercantile and General Store seems to have lost peoples interest and has nothing much to offer except a key service. Spy Tech is a mystery to me and Friends seems to be inheriting all of the bad habits of Jax. For shopping essentials its Piccolo and for flowers its the florist on Main

I think you are on the wrong street buddy. The Kimbrell building was bought and closed on last August and it is not going to be anything close to another antique place on Main. Pickers is nice but he and Lavecchia have no intention of opening another place on Main Street. He's focusing in Gastonia now and is not stupid enough to compete with his other businesses. You are ill informed and an obvious rumor starter with no life.
