      UPDATE: Hours after The Saunders Report initially published this story, we learned that a longtime and beloved Chapel Hill store, Southern Season, is shutting its downs for good. 

      By a show of hands, who else feels sad every time you see a business going belly-up, especially one right in your neighborhood?
