My grandfather's, Lewis Graeber's, niece, Mary, was Everette McKinley's wife. Mary was Charles Harris Graeber's daughter. Charles Graeber and Charlie Cannon were very good friends....I believe childhood and later business friends. Charles Graeber talked Charlie Cannon into allowing Mary and Everette McKinley to take his factory "seconds" and sell them by the pound in one of the first factory outlet stores. The first outlet store was on the east side of Cannon Blvd. between Kannapolis and Landis, NC. Mary and Everette lived near there in a large house....also on the west side of the Blvd.
