Sup Dogs is adding a large cover over its porch overlooking Reade...so they won't be moving.

I actually saw them removing some of the shingles as they started and the roof had some rotten spots, so they probably took advantage of that necessary repair.

Found this video on FB tonight. An aerial overview of what the 10th Street connector will look like.

Great response. But I don't think there's an issue with what you've said . I think Greenville is perceived in general as the chain restaurant capitol of the East. I've heard a few people on this forum and plenty of negative comments on various websites (reflector, witn, wnct, etc.) every single time a new restaurant is announced for Greenville. I personally don't mind chain restaurants. I think there is a good mix of chain, regional, and mom & pop restaurants in Greenville. I'm always excited when any new restaurant comes to town, because I know it means that the city is growing.

I'm just hoping now for some brave souls to try to bring some more entertainment to the city. Museums, fun parks , minor league baseball, an amphitheater & new festivals. That is the next step for the city, IMO. We all want better for Greenville and I think we all agree it will take time for it all to fall in line. No Worries, Bmore!
What he said ^^^^^

Agree completely.

Video is not entirely accurate...there are some buildings gone like Beach Bingo and corner of Evans/10th...and there are some still there, like the Church on Dickinson beside the bridge (which I hope will be removed).

What you take from the video the most is the expected Green Space/Sidewalks this project should create. That division will make the overall neighborhoods much safer (especially around the Elementary School).

What I don't see is lighting. I had thought that lamp posts would be installed, similar to the 5th St project.

Not surprise. I never knew what Lowe's food market was. There store isn't as nice as Harris Teeter, nor are their prices are even as good as Food Lion, much less all the new Wal-Marts. I only ever been to a Lowe's food twice and the one here in Greenville only once and I've lived here the past 3 years regularly going to grocery stores.

I'd echo your sentiments too. Lowes was uninspiring. It is a good location, I wonder with the new development at Evans and firetower will another grocery store fill this spot.

When Lowes opened, it became my store of choice for a few years...until Teeter opened up across the street. I think that's the case for most people that shopped there.

I liked lowes. Solid beer selection, and treated their employees well.

Default Lowe's Foods #204, Lynncroft, 3160 Evans Street Suite A, Greenville, North Carolina 27834-6935

I wonder if the closing of Lowe's Foods #204 may open the door to Publix coming to Greenville. Publix acquired two former Lowe's Foods sites across North Carolina for future stores opening in 2016.
