HH Gregg would be nice...I don't know if Greenville is a large enough market for them.

I would think so too, but Hickory has one. I know Hickory is a bigger metro area though. Until Circuit City as a company started having major financial woes, the one here did pretty well even with Best Buy across the street.

You know, Hickory is a bigger metro, but it encompasses 4 counties. Greenville's metro contains 2 (Pitt & Greene). If Greenville was grouped with Wilson, Rocky Mount & their 3 counties, it would be a slightly bigger metro than the Hickory metro. That would give all 3 cities more leverage to attract major stores and industries.

I would prefer that Greenville not be associated with Rocky Mount. I'll do without an HH Greg.

The two county metro area for Greenville is too small...we that live here know that people come from many other nearby counties to eat and shop in Greenville.

Saw that a new Kia dealership is going in the old Mazda dealership location on Greenville Blvd.

The new store at Greenville Blvd & Arlington Blvd is going to be a vitamin store as someone posted earlier. I'm quite sure it's going to be a Vitamin Shoppe. They're already advertising for employees and the store in their ad is almost identical to this building.

I suspect there are way more people coming from Lenoir, Beaufort, Martin, etc. than come from Edgecombe. There's actually a good bit of shopping in Rocky Mount. It's kinda like 2 towns in one. You have the old town that got stuck in the 40's. It looks quite blighted and run down, kinda like NW Greenville. Then you have the section nearer to I-95 that has a whole lot of newer development going on.

And I really, really wish they'd force the owners of that burned out tire store to tear it down. It's one of the first things people see when they visit Greenville and it looks absolutely awful. It does not leave you with a good impression of Greenville.

I totally agree. Wonder what is taking so long?
