A business that has been part of the Grafton landscape for nine years will be closing its doors at the end of the month. Jim and Carla Newton announced their decision to end their run as owners of Mississippi Half Step last week. In a statement posted on their Facebook page, they thanked their employees, family members and the community for their support over the years.

The Mississippi Half Step will close on June 30th.
