Trader Joe's Portrays Sense of Community With Graylyn Mural

When Winston-Salem introduced Trader Joe's last year many thought it was a step toward big city life - as most large cities in the nation have a TJ's. However, Frank Kirkland, general manger of the Winston-Salem Trader Joe's, had another idea. His idea? To create a grocery store in Winston-Salem that portrays a sense of community.
Mr. Kirkland approached Graylyn several months ago with hopes of painting a large mural of Graylyn on the walls of his store. His vision was to have murals of prominent and historic sites found within Winston-Salem, and what a vision it was! 
This mural would be around 8ft wide by 3ft tall and display all the main features of the Graylyn Estate, including the stone and ironwork. 
The mural was completed recently and is an amazing sight to see. Be sure to stop by and take a look for  yourself! 
A special thanks to our friends at Trader Joe's for this wonderful opportunity.
