Wilmington's airport is also referred to as an "international airport", despite having zero international passenger flights.

There's no need to enumerate every airport that has "international" status. Everybody understands how the system works, and those with critical thinking abilities understand how meaningless it is.

You sir are a pirate douche bag. The reason for my post is to clarify that a "pirate" could in fact sail his ship from Europe to Wilmington, up the Cape Fear river, into downtown Wilmington. That would be considered an international voyage. That would not be possible in "Greensboro".

I wonder if you are a real pirate or an actual douche bag.

From the TBJ (See they DO have articles about W-S):

"Flywheel has signed a long-term lease for the entire eighth floor at 500 W. Fifth St., which will more than double space available for its growing coworking member community.

The downtown Winston-Salem tower, the former National General Insurance headquarters, was purchased by auto dealer Don Flow in 2017. Flow moved his company's shared services to the top of the 18-story building, and has devoted space to Winston Starts, an incubator for new businesses. CBRE (NYSE: CBRE) Triad partner Greg Wilson represents the property.

Flywheel said it expected to move from the Center for Design Innovation at the Wake Forest Innovation Quarter in October. Founded in 2014, Flywheel was the first coworking enterprise in Winston-Salem."

I don't wonder the same about you, you've confirmed it!

Talk of a downtown grocery store appears to be getting serious. Don Flow's properties surrounding 500 W 5th could include apartments w/ retail on 4th St and a possible grocery store with other retail w/ residential at 5th and Spruce. Lowes Foods is the only name circling around at this time.

Winston Salem is not large enough at this time to support a grocery store downtown. At some point in the future, possibly. There are not enough residents currently living downtown to support a grocery store at this time.

One opened in Raleigh several years ago (at Seabord Station) but it didn't last long. Not enough business, apparently.

Publix is getting ready to open on Peace-Glenwood, but there are many more residents living downtown now, and Seabord Station will soon be getting a $ 250,000,000.000 (million) renovation by PN Hoffman, a developer from Washington, DC. The whole Peace-Glenwood area is undergoing an enormous transformation.

It will be interesting to see how the new Publix does.

Actually I think Winston-Salem can support one. Don't know if it would be a chain store. Greensboro has had a full service grocery store downtown for several years now and another one could be coming to Carroll's project. But the Deep Roots Market on the north end of downtown Greensboro near the ballpark is a higher price grocery store (like a mini Whole Foods) with bakery and deli and its thriving. So I say Winston-Salem can support a grocery store downtown.
