Chapel Hill, N.C. (AP) - Elizabeth Edwards is planning to open a furniture store near her North Carolina home.
 
The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Wednesday that the wife of former presidential candidate and senator John Edwards has leased space in downtown Chapel Hill. The Edwards live outside the town.
 
Elizabeth Edwards was recently on a book tour for her memoir "Resilience," which tells of her battle with incurable breast cancer and her discovery last year that her husband had been having an affair. She had talked during the tour about buying furniture for the planned store.
 
Edwards plans to open the store in October. It will be called Red Window and town officials said it would be similar to a charity store Edwards' mother managed when she lived in Japan.
