What is a boutique grocer? I think it would be a small store selling premium or specific grocery products to a specific clientele.

I would not consider The Fresh Market and Trader Joe's to be boutique grocers.

It seems the Sedgefield trade area is currently served by one supermarket, Harris Teeter #64, Adams Farm, 5710 High Point Road, Greensboro, North Carolina 27407-7031. The store, open 24 hours, has neither pharmacy nor Starbucks. I do not know if Harris Teeter intends to add them to this store, or if it plans on replacing the store.

I wonder if Pilot at Sedgefield would be a site under consideration by Publix. It has not announced any stores in Greensboro and Guilford County yet.

I would be interested in knowing how big the upscale grocer planned for Pilot at Sedgefield will be.
The HT at Adams Farm is undergoing an expansion right now.

Default Harris Teeter #64, Adams Farm, 5710 High Point Road, Greensboro, North Carolina 27407-7031

Harris Teeter #64 is getting a pharmacy and Starbucks in its expansion. It should be a very nice store when its expansion is complete.

Its safe to say this store wont be a Harris Teeter, Food Lion, Lowes or Publix. There really aren't that many options other than Fresh Market or Trader Joe's. But I'm just going by what the Business Journal reported. I'm sure its a site Trader Joe's would highly be interested in. A nice quality development in southern Greensboro with the right demographics, interstate access and close proximity to High Point which in effect would serve both cities.

Looking beyond the Pilot at Sedgefield site, are there any sites in the Sedgefield trade area where Publix could consider opening a store?

I can't think of any off the top of my head but I'm sure the Pilot development will help attract other retail to the area. Down the road a second Publix store in the area wouldn't be out of the question. The grocery chain will be expanding rapidly in North Carolina.

so it's going to explode with development like the Elm Eugene area? what with all the new fancy apartment complexes and retail seemingly sprouting up overnight. i always knew that area would explode one day, i predict a partial annexation there aswell because they are seriously running out of room.

Will that happen with this area? Elm Eugene seems to be the definition of Urban Sprawl.

yeah developers will be foaming at the mouth to build new projects at major interstate interchanges. I think Roy Carroll had one time planned a lifestyle center almost as big as Friendly Center at the South Elm-Eugene street. I-85/loop interchange but the residential mass was not there yet.

and now it is, that area took like a rocket, the apartments are gorgeous aswell.
Infact, i'm thinking a lifestyle center there now could work, even though there is a walmart right down the street, They are just going to keep building apartments, more and more people will move in.

That side of town is about to become a mini wendover. Too bad cone can't follow suit. Cone essentially feels forgotten

Not a development out there since the big box walmart venture.

I remember when elm eugene...was nothing, now it's, it's own little town.
