Adam & Eve touts success after 1986 raid

Not many companies want to mark this sort of anniversary.

It was 25 years ago, on May 29, 1986, that law enforcement agents raided the Triangle offices of Adam & Eve.

The Hillsborough-based company issued a press release today describing the raid and thumbing its nose at the "Reagan adminstration's Meese Commission."

"Despite the government's attempts to shut it down, Adam & Eve has grown and flourished," the company wrote.

Founded in 1970 as a mail-order business, Adam & Eve is one of the country's largest and oldest sex products company. It now employs 375 people at its Hillsborough headquarters and is known for its employee benefits and philanthropic efforts.

Clement closes case on sex shop

Durham city councilman Howard Clement has suspended his effort to arrange a meeting between owners of an Adam & Eve sex-wares store and displeased neighbors.

Clement takes on sex shop

Durham City Councilman Howard Clement is taking the lead in trying to bring an accord between owners of the Adam & Eve sex-merchandise business and citizens who want to keep their store from opening in south Durham.

“I don’t mind,” Clement said during Monday night’s council meeting.

Welcome to Durham?

If you frequent the area of Fayetteville Road and N.C. 54 you have
Bull's Eye's sympathies — and you've no doubt noticed construction
going on at the northwest corner, that narrow, formerly tree-covered
lot the City of Durham surplus-property office tried for years to
unload.

Well, somebody bought, and now some good Durham folk are in a stew about what's coming there.
