As a student at the University of South Carolina, Rock Hills Tyler LePhew ate at Jimmy Johns Gourmet Sandwiches many times.
The franchise promotes itself as a shop that offers fresh meats and vegetables with no additives or fillers, and with more than 2,000 shops across the country, LePhew thinks it could be a catalyst for bringing more people and businesses to downtown Rock Hill.

Rock Hill's ChristmasVille came to a close Sunday evening, and organizers are calling it the best ever.
Featuring several new additions, including a 40-foot Ferris wheel, free pony rides and the Dickens Ball, the 4-day annual holiday festival attracted more people than last year, said festival and events manager Candy Clapp.
Last year, attendance estimates were in the range of 15,000 to 30,000 people. This year, said Clapp, the crowds were heavy since ChristmasVille kicked off Thursday night.

It's time to say goodbye to the Old Town Market - a place to "buy local" since it opened in May. But tonight it will close for the season with a little something for everyone.
All of the farmers who have participated in the market are from York, Chester and Lancaster counties, and nearly all of the artisans and crafters are based in York County.
"The available items - food products, as well as arts and crafts - are high-quality and unique," said Chrys Tuttle, market manager. "People can even begin holiday shopping at Old Town Market!"
Residents have been able to buy farm-fresh eggs, cut flowers and herbs, handmade aprons and hanging baskets at the market, but something new will be at the finale.
