Joe Pecheles originally opened the doors of Joe Pecheles Motors on July 29, 1965 in Greenville with just 13 employees.
Originally a Volkswagon-only dealership, the business was the first in Greenville to sell import brand vehicles.
The business now serves three cities in eastern North Carolina and includes eight brands of vehicles.
The President of Pecheles Automotive, Brian Pecheles, says the family is "honored to have been part of the greater Greenville and eastern North Carolina community for the past 50 years."
The company also announced a new Audi facility will be built on the corner of Evans Street and Red Banks Road in Greenville. Construction is expected to begin around the summer of 2016.
So, is Morgan Printers and/or the ice skating facility coming down? Or are they using their own lot beside their VW office (which isn't exactly on the corner)? It be nice if they bought that motel and tore it down.

A building there and a hotel across the street would certainly change that end of downtown...I recall the pedestrian plan called for a pedestrian bridge to cross 5th St at the back of the site...if that is built into the project, students could access the building/parking from campus without ever crossing 5th St and it would forever change the 5th St entrance to ECU. Would love to see some renderings by ECU of this.

Hopefully this is brick and mortar talk and not just "plans". Would think this would be done before the "planned" Alumni Center and "planned" Performing Arts Center.
Oh no this one stop shop building is the real deal, and has become a big priority at ECU. You'll see designs for it between now and February, I'd assume construction will probably start next fall or winter.

Talked to a friend/contractor today...said it was going to be another phone place (BoostMobile...was not sure of the name).

Bubba's changed ownership almost a year ago. It's now owned by the same people who own TieBreakers and the new (not yet open) casual restaurant by Honey Baked Ham on Red Banks. I'd like to see Bubba's survive, but an expanded menu would be nice. Moving to a more visible location might help as well.
The restaurant going in by Honey Baked Ham is......The Rick House

My wife and I went to the new Dickinson Avenue Public House tonight and both enjoyed it. It was only half-way full so we had very quick sitting and service. The food was very good and very decently priced. I think most entrees ranged from $12-$23. The decor is the urban, industrial setting with painted concrete floors, open ceilings, Edison lighting, etc...

I didn't even realize they were open yet. My wife follows them on Facebook so that is how we knew. Maybe once they are settled in, they will advertise a bit to boost their business. Also, once the brewery opens next door, it should help both of them. Either way, I hope they both succeed.

Went to Tapped650 yesterday on Firetower and it was a very nice setup. Love the craft beer concept and it is something that Greenville desperately needed. I highly recommend checking the place out. It was very relaxing and a nice place to get a drink.

They have 20 beers on tap that are always rotated. you can see what is on tap at www.tapped650.com and it updates every 30 minutes.

Agreed. Tapped is a very friendly and professional environment that lends itself to those looking for quality beer and not the "bar scene". With all the growth and progress Greenville is quickly growing into it's own unique personality and separating itself from it's previous character of high crime, dangerous downtown and nothing to do. I did not like this city at all when I moved here six years ago but recently it is truly becoming a great place to live.

I also look forward to visiting the Dickinson Avenue Public House and the new microbrewery set to open next to them.

I got mail today for Mayor Allen Thomas' campaign for re-election, but I live in Winterville. Does that mean I can vote for the mayor race in Greenville?

Only if you live in the city of Greenville with a Winterville mailing address. I believe Mayor Thomas has a Winterville, NC mailing address, but lives in the city of Greenville. That creates a lot of confusion.
