(GREENSBORO, N.C.) - Lorraine Dodds is 94 years old. She’s a businesswoman, soft and elegant like the cozy, boutique-like store she owns and loves. And she has no plans to retire anytime soon.
Her shop, nicely situated between a busy commercial avenue and the stately Irving Park neighborhood in the city of Greensboro, N.C., Lorraine’s Karat Gold Corner stands quietly and modestly as it has for decades. Nestled between Edward Jones Investments and the popular clothing shop Dress Code, its emerald green awning welcomes customers from all over, time and time again.
