Dollar General

I dont understand the location either. There's one serving the area 2.5 miles away on 264-A. This new DG is smaller and sits at a weird angle, looks awkward and misplaced; plus it's an invite to similar business being setup nearby.

Great to see these new developments!

The "Gather Uptown" building is going up really quickly. I was in Greenville a couple a weeks ago and ate out on the patio at Winslow's. As I was sitting outside, I could clearly see the GU building and for a bit, it felt like a real city environment. I can't wait until it's completed. I'll be glad when the Sidewalk Development gets underway.


I am glad to see more communication with the Coastal Plain League. They seem to be very interested in the Greenville market. I never thought Guy Smith was a great location, even on a temporary basis. I think the PCC stadium may work for a year or two at the most, but something permanent should be done quickly. IMO, a 2,000 seat stadium (with room to grow) somewhere in the Dickinson Ave area would be ideal. My 2nd pick would be to create a "Sports and Entertainment" complex to be built somewhere near the highway. Combining retail, family attractions, hotels, and the "triangle and rectangle" youth sports fields they've been talking about, a multi-sport "championship" stadium could be constructed to host the CPL team along with other concerts, festivals and sporting events. It would be the ultimate public/private partnership.

I"m glad they are moving forward with the Evans St. project. It all worked out in the end. taking away 6 ft. of median space and 4 total feet of lane space definitely helps fit it between the wall and the berm.The ECU Life Sciences building will be a wonderful addition. I'd love to see a hotel across from it on the Evans/9th Street block once the 10th street connector is done.

I can't decide who's worse at oversaturating an area with stores, Walmart or Dollar General.

DG is rapidly gaining on WM in that category...

I was thinking the same thing. I don't know how much property is or could be zoned commercial. I'd love to see more commercial over there but sadly I doubt many other quality businesses would see a lot of value in setting up next to a Dollar General.

I honestly don't have as much of an issue with Wal-mart. They have a lot of organic and healthier food options. DG is a smorgasbord of chemical cocktails and pseudo-food products.

Those four homes ECU purchased on Fieldside St. have been razed in preparation to expand the football stadium.

The apartment building that is in the curve on Charles, right across from Domino's/The Buzz and State Farm, is being gutted and renovated. And it has a new name.

The Edge of Campus.

It's like when you plagiarize something in a paper but change it so the teacher can't really say it's straight up copied.

^It would have been much better if they would have just bulldozed the thing & started from scratch.
