High Point trying to lure Trader Joe

Looks like the folks in High Point want a Trader Joe's. Trader Joe's usually goes to markets that want them there...yet I don't know about the demographics. It usually goes into market areas with buyers who want exceptional differences in food choices, private branding, and educated workforce. I hope High Point wins.

Unless it's at the Palladium, I highly doubt it'll happen.

Agreed.
High Point thinks it is more important than it really is.

watch out for the carousel theater plan near Friendly Center. I think Trader Joe's will take another shot at Greensboro before it considers the Palladium in High Point. the demographics of Greensboro fits Trader Joe's more than High Point. Its not that Greensboro doesn't want Trader Joe's, a hand full of residents ruined chances for one on one site.

Wow, three years later and still nothing. I am guessing at least 2020 before Greensboro is even considered again. So maybe 2022.

Yes, it was started in G'boro, and is still headquartered there, although it was bought by Apollo Global Management in 2012, so the real headquarters are in NYC.

If hp or gso does manage to snag a Trader Joes...
I hope they can choose a better location for the store that the miserable Thruway SC in Winston.

In Greensboro, Friendly Center is out of the question now. It would probably be best now for a Trader Joe's to be located somewhere in southwest Greensboro where it can also draw shoppers from High Point asuming they decide on a Greensboro location. Right now Greensboro seems to be poised to get a Sprouts. The business journal reported Wegmans was scouting sites in Greensboro but right now nothing is confirmed.
