Can we please keep the discussion on Winston Salem in this thread. We get it...Carroll is single-handedly revitalizing downtown Greensboro with plans of a grocery store with highrise in 2035. The fact is, no matter how you try to look at it, no city in the Triad has a downtown grocery store. Deep Roots, though nice, is not downtown.

Back to Winston-Salem...Lowes Foods has been looking around for a while. For those who dont know, check out this article from early 2018.

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.
I disagree. Downtown Winstonís Stats indicate it is time for a grocery store:

2017 Population
1 Mile: 11,674
3 Miles: 82,554
5 Miles: 169,343
2010 Population
1 Mile: 8,207
3 Miles: 67,812
5 Miles: 151,019
Employees
1 Mile: 18,882
3 Miles: 76,154
5 Miles: 131,211

Yes it is. It relocated to 600 N. Eugene Street, in downtown, in 2013.

I think they know where they're located.

This is not about Greensboro. I don’t care about Greensboro.

Anyone can "say" or "label" themselves as whatever but OFFICIAL city maps are factual. Even the Fisher Park neighborhood website says Deep Roots is in their neighborhood.

LOL, yes anyone can say whatever...kind of like the Fisher Park neighborhood.

Downtown Greensboro, Inc. says its in downtown: https://downtowngreensboro.org/listing-category/shops/

By the way foursquare.com isn't an "OFFICIAL city map".

Anything within the greenway loop is "downtown". Just like Winston-Salem's ballpark is "downtown" but not technically.

The funny thing is the store is technically out of the central Business district border by half a block and some are saying its not downtown yet Raleigh proposes a soccer stadium for "downtown" and the site is at least 2 miles south of the central business district and is no where near downtown lol. Kinda like saying the Greensboro Coliseum is downtown. Seems that technicalities only apply to Greensboro. But there is a difference between central Business district boundaries and downtown boundaries. Deep Roots is not in the central Business district boundaries but it is in the downtown boundaries.

But back on topic........................

There was a statement made that Winston-Salem could not support a grocery store and I disagree. There is enough existing and new residential for one. Winston-Salem is not saturated with grocery stores and probably the nearest one is near Trader Joe's, Winston's unofficial midtown area

I'd say Winston-Salem is certainly large enough to support a downtown grocery store, at the least something on the smaller side like Trader Joe's.
