  • Innovation in the Service of Convenience

    Store allows night-time access to key card holders   By Christopher Sinclair It is difficult to envision a 7-Eleven, Cumberland Farms, or other 24-hour store popping up in Norfolk’s downtown center.

Treasures From the Rare Book Room   By Lucy Mookerjee Plenty of Norfolkians know a rare bird when they see one. But many birders would be hard-pressed to identify the markings of a “rare” book. What makes a rare book rare? It depends—age, scarcity, market value. Whether you’ve spotted it or not, the Norfolk Library […]

Convenience Store and Deli Opens in Downtown Norfolk

Residents Offer Strong Show of Support   By Wiley Wood It’s not the Corner Store. The musty gray carpet is gone, the cave-like interior, the flat fluorescent lighting. The Berkshire Country Store—bright, cheerful and inviting—is something else. It opened without fanfare in the pre-dawn dusk of January 4. Within minutes, the grill was delivering hot […]
