Kannapolis was just one of several NC cities that relied heavily on manufacturing and textile jobs. When those jobs went overseas the economy was in bad shape. So Im glad that Kannapolis is seeing positive changes for its economy. However....

I was in Cabarrus county during the Cabarrus county fair about 2 months ago and was surprised by all of the neighborhoods that are already there. The entire county is inundated with new houses and neighborhoods, and more popping up all over the place.

Kannapolis has been in a real bad spot recently with all the mill jobs going away. The economy took a big hit especially with that Pillotex shutdown. Once they finish that Biotech Research Center though, good things are sure to follow.
