Greenville for the most part makes me happy. I went through the I hate Greenville phase growing up here, but after living in Raleigh / Cary for 8 years, I came back & haven't missed Raleigh...if I do it's only an hour away.
Well said! I'm so over the "I hate Greenville crowd." You're totally right, life is way too short to live unhappy. I consider myself very blessed to live in Greenville. We're not perfect by any means but hate is too strong a word.

I firmly agree with the idea of if you are not happy living somewhere, then move. While I can't speak for other folks in the area, I was on a contract that I felt I should in good faith honor. I however have resigned as of May, 2012 and am currently job searching. My goal is to get back to a larger city more in line with what I was used to before Greenville (ala Tampa, Philly, etc.)

Greenville has certainly grown in the six years I have been here and it has made many positive strides. I hope it can catch up the growth in population with its roadways, city services, etc. If it does, it will be a good little place to live.

They started tearing down homes and moving barns on the property of the future Wal-Mart today.

of course...my feelings toward the area are very strong so it makes sense. plus im subscribed to "coastal north carolina" bc there are many places within that geographic that i do love. i lived in beaufort and had the time of my life there. i think most people on here subscribe to/check forums for areas in which they've lived to help give advice. im glad greenville is getting a new wal-mart at least.

Dicks is moving along nicely. They already have a large portion of one of the walls built. I'll try to take a picture and post it soon.

i see in the Daily Reflector today that Atlantic Grill has closed due to Finelli being unable to find a suitable chef / manager. I never ate there but hears it was good...at least when the original chef was there. Maybe he will concentrate on making Finelli's better now..the food had really gone down hill last time I ate there & the prices up.

I think an office environment would help, but there are so many open office spaces around town right now, I don't see a need. I still think a Chuck E Cheese type place geared toward kids & parents would do blockbuster here...there is no where like it in a town filled with families. If I had the capital I'd attempt to open one or something similar...even a Dave & Busters type place on a smaller scale I think would do good.
