Stratford Arms basically fell into ECU's lap. It is a large parcel of land adjacent to a lot of ECU property. They couldn't say no to it. But, IIRC, there isn't anything near term in the pipeline in development, minus parking. But I wouldn't be surprised if something eventually goes there.

That list is not necessarily up to date. Alltel is listed as building in Surprise, AZ - they were bought out by Verizon over 3 years ago and though a spinoff using the Alltel brand ended up in some areas, Phoenix wasn't one of them.

Sadly, good call. The copyright is to 2011 as well.

I called PF Changs Corporate office last month & was told they don't have any plans to open up here in the near future.

I'm surprised they (PF Changs) were even exploring the idea of a restaurant here, or was it just a company that attempted to lure them here?

But has anyone ever been to this health foods store in the Carolinian Center (I believe that's the name of it, it's directly across the street from Kohls), the store is beside the DMV. Well anyways I've never been but the store is always packed every time o do see it, do you guys think a store similar to that would do good in Uptown? I have no experience with business but I've always said that I would open a small health foods store someday and I realized Uptown would be the perfect location. If that health foods store that isn't even visible by road, and not in a very diserable shopping center can do well, then I'm positive Uptown would be support it well but anyways, what are your thoughts on this?
What in the world are you talking about? I didn't think there was a health foods store over there. The only thing even close that I'm aware of is the Asain Market place that sells Asian groceries and a lot of that is NOT health food. The only health food stores I've seen in Greenville is Oakmont Health Food Store on Charles. I actually don't know how he stays in business. He's a nice guy but his selection is minmal at best and his prices our ridiculous. And I mean absolutely, completely, insanely over priced.

The best option for a health food store needs to be a co-op. Greenville is hugely lacking in affordable, healthy options. Especially since the farmers market is pretty weak too. And if anyone suggests that Fresh Market is a health food store, you should be slapped! I'm not even going to go off on that rabbit trail. Anyways, Co-op, plain and simple would be awesome! It's the only way to get reasonable, local and health specialty items at affordable prices unless Whole Foods comes into town. But let's be honest, there is no way that's going to happen in an area that is competeing for the fast-food, obesity and diabetes capital of the country. Plus this area could use a community centered grocer that could help bring the few health conscience people in the area together while helping to educate those that are interested.

I was told by relatives older than me that years ago first years living on campus were not allowed to have cars. ECU didn't have the parking to support it. Then they fenced in that gravel lot out by the Salvation Army and started allowing it.
