Wish there was more space on one end of this development for a new Target. 50,000 sq ft won't cut it.
If a grocery goes into one of the 50K stores, what would go into the other? A furniture store or a replacement location for an already existing store like Office Depot or Dunham's? Unless the developers have two major tenants already in place, I think they're better of planning for only one large store, with one (or maybe two?) 20k stores. It's very hard to find large scale tenants (How long were Circuit City and Home Depot empty?), so this plan seems risky.

Of course, they could just open the largest mattress store/frozen yogurt shop on the east coast.

Publix has opened several new stores that are 45,600 or 49,098 square feet or larger. Some new stores have pharmacy drive through.

Thalhimer does have one retail center anchored by Publix, store 459, Saint James Shopping Center, 208 Saint James Avenue Suite C, Goose Creek, South Carolina 29445-2994.

Publix would succeed in Greenville and Pitt County.
Publix is already being constructed in New Bern. Not sure they would want two stores that close.

45 Miles between Publix stores is not close. Also, Greenville does not have several big box stores, like Marshalls, HomeGoods, Sports Authority, hh gregg, Conn's Home Plus, Cost Plus World Market, etc. So it may not have a supermarket anchor at all.

Greenville can do better, but I view Red Robin as a bit more upscale of a chain eatery than some we have here. There was a time 20 years ago Greenville couldn't have paid to bring a RR here. As long as we're moving forward, that's progress.

Red Robin doesn't seem like an upscale eatery in my opinion, but with them coming to Greenville shows the demographics have shifted in favor of opening their restaurant there. As I've said time and time again in the past, Greenville has enough jobs from enough restaurants and retail, but I'm glad Greenville is now seeking more "high-paying positions."

Red Robin prices are certainly upscale!

I don't know, I guess living in the DC Metropolitan area my definition of expensive/upscale has changed. Hell, I love the Cheesecake Factory and especially their Cheesecakes, but I don't even consider them to be "upscale" anymore but more or less to be a more pricey option (at least regarding their meals) that doesn't meet up to their food quality. At Red Robin one may get a burger for less than $15, that's priced relative to other burgers in Greenville, but upscale is stretch. I know one thing for sure, I could go for one of those good ol' Bubba's Burgers right now, I wish we had that up here because it's better than most places I've tried and far less expensive.

I asked this a while back but since the Boundary project downtown just opened, does anyone know what retail tenants they plan to have on the first level?
