Wait, since when can downtown W-S not support a Grocery store?

Downtown would benefit greatly from one.

Ha, ha - that was a good one.

Smaller grocery stores are generally called "convenience stores".

Gsoboi78 says :"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."

The CBD is expanding northward (Peace - Glenwood) and south towards 440 Beltline; this project, South Saunders project, etc. Most cities expand their CBD districts over time.

And no, neither Greensboro or Winston-Salem can support a downtown full-sized grocery store at this time. Mini-stores yes.

Obviously what is meant is something smaller than a supermarket that sells a standard variety of groceries, not QT or Sheetz. The technical term would either be a limited assortment supermarket like Aldi or a specialty grocer/health food store like Deep Roots.

Understood. That would be a better first step IMO. Only a matter of time before a full sized store will enter the market; possibly as part of a new apartment-condo project etc.

He posts on a Winston-Salem forum. He's one of the few that don't like Greensboro topics polluting Winston-Salem topics. Its the reason why all the Triad forums are heavily one side with primarily Greensboro posts. However there are a few that engage in Winston-Salem conversations here.
