SHALLOTTE — Frank and Lena Mae Causey own Shallotte Marine Supply, yet it’s someone else who runs the show.
That someone is Lucky.
Lucky is a 5-year-old yellow lab mix, but he’s far from an ordinary dog.
Von, Frank and Lena Mae’s daughter, who has helped in the store as it prepares to close after 46 years in business, is Lucky’s owner.
Frank Causey, who returned from working on the dredge almost 50 years ago and opened Shallotte Marine Supply, said he’ll miss a lot of things about the store.
