McCombs and Company open in Faith
Kim Mahaffey Shores has opened a new business in Faith with a familiar name.
McCombs and Company will specialize in the items made in McCombs Grocery by Vern McCombs and his brother, the late Eugene McCombs.
Shores, a niece of the McCombs brothers, will sell Vern’s famous pimento cheese, which is made with five different cheeses, along with chicken salad, egg salad, red slaw and a new item, roasted jalapeno pimento cheese.
All of the salads and the pimento cheese are made fresh each week from the original recipes. The store will also offer seasonal specials, such as soups in the winter and potato salad and deviled egg trays when it’s warmer.
Rita Shive Lefler will share the kitchen with her Carolina Sweets bakery. She makes all her cakes, pies and cookies from scratch with real butter and fresh eggs. Nothing is prepackaged or premixed. Customers can sample her soft and creamy whoopee pie and special order favorite cakes.
Bag lunches will be available each day, consisting of a toasted or untoasted pimento cheese, chicken salad or egg salad sandwich served with pickle, chips and homemade dessert. Call-in orders are available for quick pickups, and deliveries will be made with a five-order minimum.
The new store is at 113 Main St., Faith, between Faith Soda Shop and Tom’s Hairport. Hours are 11 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday. The phone number is 704-279-9776.
