R&M Sandwich Shop's 40th anniversary is Tuesday, but there is no celebration planned.
That's because Canton's oldest single owner business is on the brink of serving its last hoagie, according to a report in Saturday's Cherokee Tribune.
On R&M's Facebook page, longtime patrons are sharing their memories and sadness.

Cherokee County Solicitor General David Cannon Jr. worked at R&M when he was a student at Cherokee High. For an hour's work, he got $5 and a hoagie.
"The best job i ever had," he wrote. "We can not let this happen!"
