We have PF Changs, Ruth Chris Steakhouse and Wolfgang Pucks...what gives?
There is a Bentley dealership in Charlotte, as well.

Yep, Bentley of Charlotte, The only City in NC that can truly claim to having the only exclusive exotic dealership sold in the state of NC is Greensboro With Lamborghini, Charlotte has had Bentley for many years, and It's also got a subdivision of foreign cars italia, albeit Very small compared to the one here. Just like concord has a subdivision of Lamborghini carolinas called NC autosports.
Raleigh also has a Bentley dealer/Rolls and they also have a Maserati dealer.

Funfact: About the "all under one roof" Foreign cars italia and their respecters dealers are certified by the automanufactures, meaning they can sell new and used just like a regular single dealer. infact before the "exotic supermall" was built, Ferrari,Aston,Maserati and porsche were supposed to be split up and placed along wendover. but they decided to put them all underone roof, which was a good idea, and build in a area with high traffic to get more sales and "Drive & Out". I asked the manager of FCI(good friend of mine) when we were speaking at Cars & Coffee, apparently the old wendover location was to small and absolutely horrible for buisness. so if you have been in FCI now, you know how magical that place is it's that way for a reason. thus making it one of the biggest and most impressive ways to buy exotic cars in the country, to the likes of Bugatti/lamborghini/ferrari/bentley/rolls royce in new york that follows the same structure a high end automotive supermall.

But yea, anyway back to topic.

i drove by friendly today and asked some questions about was going in cold water,The other tenants, they were pretty tight lipped but big grins.

I've always thought the location of the Lamborghini dealership in Greensboro was odd. Its located at Wendover Ave and Battleground, miles away from the interstate and just where its located is strange considering the establishments around it.

Not to mention what a b***h ingress and egress can be.
Before Rolls and Bentley split High Point had both at the same location. The reason there is/was RR/Bentley in High Point is because of the old money.

It seems to hold it's own there but the lot size is not very conducive for much of a used car inventory.

The old Ann Taylor space at Shops at Friendly is currently under renovation. The new store will be an upscale women's apparel, accessories, and furniture store called "Soft Surroundings" which is currently only has 30 stores in the U.S. and locates in upscale malls and lifestyle centers. The first stores in the state will be located in Friendly Center and in Charlotte and will open around the same time. Soft Surroundings is a direct competitor with Ann Taylor, so this seems like a natural replacement for the space and seems to be a good upscale addition and fit for Friendly Center. The remaining 1,500 square feet will be filled by another unknown tenant at this time. Soft Surroundings should open sometime in February 2016. This will also be the only Soft Surroundings store in the CBL Properties portfolio of malls and shopping centers.

Also a new 14,000 square foot expansion in Friendly Center should be announced soon to be located between Anthropologie and Whole Foods. The Greensboro Planning and Rezoning board approved the expansion to CBL in October. Again it is unknown at this time what tenant or tenants will be located in this expansion. I would personally would like to see a store like LL Bean. LL Bean stores are in the 14,000 square foot range on average, so I guess its a possibility.
