I moved from Jersey to Union County. I have never seen more strip malls and supermarkets in my life. HWY 74 is overloaded, and quite excessive in many respects since a lot of major stores are duplicated within a very small area. But how far cannot be answered by anyone, without knowing your exact location.

There are tons of stores on 74 and even a mall on 74 in Monroe. I prefer to go to the mall in Pineville(Carolina Place) or the one in Concord (Concord Mills). Supermarkets are every where. I do not think you will have to go far to find one of those! I used smartpages.com a lot when I moved here to find some of the particular stores that I like. When you find the store, they give you a map so you can see wherte it is located. Best of luck!

Ok.... Shopping if you are in Cureton.... The Harris Teeter will open there in Spring 2007 and there is suppose to be a super target and borders books going in too... in the meantime--- you can brave the food lion on 16 in waxhaw for bread and milk... or go towards 485 on 16 and you'll find another Harris teeter...or you can take gray byrum to waxhaw marvin out to the back roads to the target and harris teeter in blakeney... are you getting it yet... harris teeter has a monopoly here. And they know it so food shopping can be pricey... we feed a family of 5 so I also like Bi/Lo because it is close to St. Matthews our church and we can grab on our way back home. I hate to sound so gung ho on where we live but that is the other reason I think this side (cureton,quellin etc.) of 16 is better than the other side because you can easily take the back roads to ballantyne, RTE 521 (also shopping here) and get out to 485 via johnston road instead of your only option being providence road and 485. As far as malls go... if you want to outlet it... Concord Mills (25 minutes on 485) South Park mall in Charlotte has Nordstroms, Neimans, Pottery Barn -- your typical malls mall is in Pineville.. Hects departments stores, Macy's etc. Now, there are a lot of other shopping options at the arboretum (25 minutes) down providence road that will send you to old navy. childrens place etc. hope that helps.

did you see my earlier message about the neighbors picketting the neighbor in wesley oaks because he is a sex offender and they want him out of the neighborhood...be careful with that neighborhood, they are offering great deals to out of towners hoping to lure them into that neighborhood.
