I found an informative history of Lady Marian Plaza, a retail center located on North Main Street in the City of Marion in McDowell County, North Carolina, in The McDowell News article "Pierce Bradley has shaped Marion" from Saturday, 7 December 2013.

Lady Marian Plaza opened Wednesday, 13 November 1971, with department store Kress, Northwestern Bank, superamrket Harris Teeter, a Sears catalog store, drugstore Revco, Connie Fashions, Gordon’s Jewelry, The Gent Shop, Brady Brooks’ insurance office, and a Union 76 gas station.

The 40,000-square-foot Kress was destroyed by a fire on Thursday, 2 December 1971. It would be succeeded by a Rose's discount department store. Rose's would relocate to Marion City Square, 600 North Main Street, Marion, North Carolina 28752-3142, in 1986.

I do not know when Harris Teeter closed. It is today limited assortment/discount grocer Grocery Outlet, 1155 North Main Street, Marion, North Carolina 28752-4503.

A cause was not determined.

It could have mattered at the time. A cause of a fire may never be determined.

Could have mattered at the time ?? Maybe , but today means ZERO today .

In general local people know about a business in trouble or closing long before it hits a news or this site thanks to face book and local chit chat as secrets really aren't secret for long so info found here tends to be old news to those it effects . We knew bi-lo was doomed and closing in Burnsville before ingles even closed on there property .
