just to clarify this last post, Schoolkids didn't buy out Monster, it was the other way around. Mike Phillips owned the Schoolkids locations in Raleigh and Cary but Chapel Hill was owned by Pepper with Pepper's Pizza. Monster opened (on Halloween 1994) because we were getting a lot of business in Raleigh (I worked about both stores) and knew there were some needs in Chapel Hill.. and Franklin Street was starting to grow West.. obviously it could not be called Schoolkids so we named it Monster b/c we were going to open on Halloween. Eventually Pepper wanted out and sold his location to Phillips and it was changed back to schoolkids, but the Monster staff moved into East Franklin. Sad to see the store go.
