Does anyone know if if either Sams or Costco are planning to open any stores in the New Bern area? I I had heard that Sams was planning on opening a store where the big Coca Cola building is now, next to the former bowling alley on HWY 17 South.

For that matter, does anyone know of any new retail or restaurant chains coming to New Bern? We keep seeing commercials for Carrabbas, Whole Foods and Homegoods. Any news about these companies coming to our area? Would love to see a Trader Joe's, too! Thanks!

I suspect those tv channels are located in Raleigh, Wilmington, Greenville, etc. and the commercials are intended for those markets where those companies have current locations. I wouldn't assume they are an indicator that the companies are coming to New Bern.

I would be very surprised if Trader Joe's opened a New Bern store any time in the foreseeable future.

Whole Foods will never come to New Bern due to it's demographics. The nearest Whole Foods future location (that I'm aware of) is on the western side of Cary, which will be Cary's second location. The median household income in Cary over $110k. New Bern's is $40k.

Yup. Other commercials include Boston Market, Kohl's, Macy's, etc. None of those retailers are located in New Bern or opening locations there.

There is a Kohl's in Jacksonville as well as other national chains that don't have a New Bern location, they would be close enough to the New Bern tv viewing area. I would agree with the posters above though, most of those ads are for the Raleigh area (especially if the TV provider is TWC / Spectrum).
