I shop in the Union Road Aldi. In conversations with other customers, they have all speculated that the Union Road Bi-Lo can't survive the addition of the Lidl.

Default BI-LO #5206, 2204 Union Road, Gastonia, North Carolina 28054-6014

BI-LO #5206 opened in 1993. If it was initially on a 20-year lease and renewed it with a five-year extension, the lease should be up in 2018.

BI-LO stores across North Carolina have closed, are in the process of closing, or have converted to another Southeastern Grocers banner: Harvey's Supermarket.

2018 should be convenient for a closure.

Most of the customers in Aldi who have speculated on the closure were residents of Gastonia.

Default BI-LO in Gaston County, North Carolina

I think two other Gaston County stores opened in 1993 and could be up for similar fates as BI-LO #5206:
  • BI-LO #5093, Belmont Village, 6507 West Wilkinson Boulevard, Belmont, North Carolina 28012-2891
  • BI-LO #5605, 1955 Davis Park Road, Gastonia, North Carolina 28052-5063
BI-LO #5582, 421 South Highway 27, Stanley, North Carolina 28164-2044, opened in the late 1990's. It is the only BI-LO store in Gaston County without a pharmacy.

The Davis Park Road store is in west Gastonia. It's close to Wow Supermarket & a Walmart supercenter. When I stop into the Wow Supermarket I'm not the only non-Hispanic in the store. Those people, both black & white, are not shopping in the Davis Park Bi-Lo, which is a depressing looking place, in my opinion.

Default BI-LO in Gaston County, North Carolina

BI-LO stores 5093, 5206, and 5605 opened between 1993 and 1994. They are the same store prototype.

I do not know how much business BI-LO #5093 could lose when Harris Teeter #386, Belmont Town Center, 905 South Point Road, Belmont, North Carolina 28012-9520, opens later this year.

Food Lion withdrew from Belmont a couple of years ago. If Bi-Lo withdraws from Gastonia, I can't see it being smart for Bi-Lo to keep the Belmont store open.

Could Belmont handle another supermarket like Publix?
