I haven't heard a peep about ANY retail / restaurants that plan to move into the spaces below the Boundary.

I don't think that there's enough traffic at the Hollywood Crossroads intersection (Worthington and NC 43) to support a small shopping center with a major chain grocery store. The car counts there are somewhere around 10 to 11 thousand (estimated based on counts north and south of that intersection) while there are counts in the Bells Fork area of 30,000 plus.

I think that you'll first see a chain gas station/C store go like Sheetz or Kangaroo.

Speaking of Kangaroo, the location at County Home and Firetower has closed.

I have noticed several Kangaroo Express store locations in North Carolina and South Carolina have closed. I do not know if leases are expiring, and/or they are low performing locations Alimentation Couche-Tard, Incorporated, parent of Circle K and acquirer of The Pantr, parent of Kangaroo Express, is closing.

Completely understand...but I equate 43 from Bells Fork to being similar to the 10th St extension...before Food Lion located at Portertown Rd there was nothing there but houses. Now there is a Wal-Mart with more coming. The widening of 10th St accelerated the development and increased traffic count.

I see the same happening from Hollywood Crossroads to Bells Fork. Single Family housing continues to be constructed...and with Conley, Hope Middle School and the Soccerplex there are destination points there for traffic.

That makes a boat load of us. Lord knows we do not need another mattress store in Greenville. How do people come up with these ideas that a town of just at 100k need 20 mattress stores???

And I agree with others who've mentioned Rivergate for Publix. That may be a great area, but the traffic is horrendous. I do not shop in that area at all. Too hard getting in and out and I was hit in a wreck there a year ago. Too much multifamily housing and the traffic flow has been poorly planned, if at all.

Courtside Cafe on Evans St downtown next to courthouse has reopened. Appears to be a convenience store now. The store is still pretty bare bones and I'm interested to see how it will turn out.

The reflector had an article about a new Mexican restaurant opening on 10th st.

Does anyone have any info on the building at 418 Evans Street? It's listed for lease on the Uptown Greenville website. Overtime I walk by there I wonder about the possibilities. It's such a big space with wood floors/exposed brick. It would make an awesome location for a restaurant downtown.

They have finally started street-scaping the Boundary. The lights are a nice touch. The parking deck still looks so incomplete, I don't know what I expected but it seems like it's missing something to blend in with the building.
