Jim's Party Store lives

Jim's lives on. View from Trent, December 24, 2014.

As of 2014, this building was under renovation to house a new (second) location of "Cocoa Cinnamon," a café that started on the northeast corner of W. Geer and Foster Streets.


Jim's Party Store ???   First place I ever purchased alcohol .

Yes, this is the old Jim's Party store.  Does anyone remember their T-shirts?  They use to quite popular - i know I wore out at least 3 of them.

So Glad to see this is here.Thanks to you guys for keeping Jims party store alive. I am still in the Raleigh durham area. Thanks to all my wonderfull customs and friends. I would do it all over again. Jim

Jim's Party Store Tee Shirts! Man-o-man...have not thought about those beautiful shirts in decades! They were the go-to fashion item for the casual/cool teen in the '70's. Can you replicate and sell them on-line Jim? Anyone able to post one of those on this site?

I remember Jim's. Loved going in there. What a great store that was. Funny seeing that picture of Lancer"s Wine. Never found much wine that I liked but Lancer's Vin Rose in those ceramic type bottles was really good. Across the street from Jim's there was a Chinese restaurant that we liked, and the Saki was good too.

what was the restaurant that this became? i remember as a kid it was quite popular with the after-work crowd.

Jim's Party Store - my grandpa's favorite place to get his beer!

Fond memories - let me charge my beer until my monthly check from my parents came in.  Duke '69
