You can OWN a piece of history, and support the Carolina Theatre’s $2.5 million renovation. Before renovation begins in late June, the theater is selling its worn but usable theater seats that are 50-plus years old. The auditorium is slated to reopen in October. Purchases are tax-deductible contributions to the campaign.

For $250, buy a single seat with a back and cushion and two armrests.

A loveseat — two seat backs and cushions and three armrests — sells for $400. Or buy a sofa-sized section for $500: three seats backs and cushions and four armrests.

Some assembly will be required.  Seats will be limited by the number of usable pieces available. Sales end June 26. The seats will be removed at the end of June and ready for pickup on a first-come, first-served basis.   Orders can be placed through the theater website at or by calling the box office at 336-333-2605

Remember the ‘battery’ situation and Apple?  Apple is refunding $50 to iPhone owners who paid for an out-of-warranty battery replacement for their iPhone 6 or newer devices last year. The ‘refund’ offer is good for anyone who bought an out-of-warranty battery replacement from Jan. 1 to Dec. 28.

Apple says it will notify eligible consumers via email before July 27 on how to obtain an electronic funds transfer or a credit on the credit card used to pay for the battery replacement.
