Sam Greenwood, the Franklin Town Manager, sent out a memo to Town Aldermen and members of the press that indicated the loan on the new ABC Store had been denied by BB&T. I have embedded a copy of it below.

The video of the recent meetings of the Town Board of Aldermen where the ABC Store has been discussed can be accessed via the links below:
