Hi-lites to close location in downtown Bennettsville
Officials with Hi-lites, a ladies' clothing store, announced Wednesday that it will close after more than 25 years in Bennettsville.
Todd Griffin, who works with the company's corporate office and helped to open the store originally, said the closing is due to economics and lack of sales at the location.
He added a final closing date has not been determined.
"But the store will be opened for a few more weeks," Griffin said. "The entire store is on sale. We appreciate the many, many loyal customers we have had."

Sherika Stuckey-Harry, a native of Bennettsville, will be the new health care provider at the McColl Free Clinic beginning in July.
