I'm also a little mystified why Wal*Mart put a neighborhood center on 279/321 when it's so close to the Wal*Mart on Myrtle in west Gastonia.
The Dallas Ingles gets people going to & from Hickory. I've stopped in there during the evening rush hour & the place is hopping. I've been in conversations with people at the Gastonia Aldi who have mentioned going to Ingles. Depending on where you live in Gastonia & what you want will determine which Ingles you go to.

Wal-Mart Neighborhood Markets opened in Gastonia, Kings Mountain, & Dallas. Trust me, Kings Mountain is much closer to the west Gastonia Wal-Mart than Dallas.

I wonder how soon Food Lion #263, 3123 Dallas High Shoals Highway Dallas, North Carolina 28034, will close. It has no cars in its parking lot when compared to Ingle's #146, 715 West Trade Street, Dallas, North Carolina 28034-1544, and Walmart Neighborhood Market #7004, 1300 Dallas Cherryville Highway, Dallas, North Carolina 28034-8714.

Oh yeah. I'll go in there once in a while for some milk, and chuckle to myself in bemusement that it's still a functioning store.

I can only guess that it's stayed open with an ulta-cheap lease in an ageing shopping center. The Wal*Mart is kind of a hassle to turn left out of, and head back to 321. The road is busy and wide there. So maybe the F.L. is convenient for just enough people to hang on.

Anyone who wants to feel like a kid again following your parents to the grocery... visit that Food Lion. Low ceilings and very short aisles.

Wow Supermarket still isn't open. The owner can't be happy about this.

An article in the Gaston Gazette listed several unanticipated things that have to be done.
