Only a small matter...if that, but is it now Point or Pointe? The development originated with the name Shoppes at Eagle Pointe, but the signs on the property (posted by CBL) state Shoppes at Eagle Point. Browning still lists the development as Shoppes at Eagle Pointe.

So, if we're now going with CBL's name...shouldn't it be Shops at Eagle Point? ;-)

I hope the news of this project's completion time frame spurs on the new Kroger construction.

ha I hadn't noticed that. But you're right, the signs along Walnut and Interstate do say Point and not Pointe. I don't like that name Shoppes anyway so I'd just as soon it be simplified to Shops at Eagle Point.

Anyway, I'm with you on Kroger. I was in the Cookeville Kroger on Monday evening, and the place was packed. That's got to be one of the highest grossing Krogers around. I usually avoid it (I much prefer Spring Street, Aldi, or even the Food Lion on Jackson) but Kroger does have some things that just aren't available anywhere else in Cookeville. Publix will definitely take care of that.

Considering this is a $50 million+ development that will bring upwards of 600 new jobs to town, I completely support this deal.

This is written almost assuming the reader has read the prior articles. They should write it as if the reader is new to the story and to the area. It's really not clear where it the project is based on this 'news' article.

That's our local paper for you. The project fronts Interstate Drive behind Logan's / Cheddar's / Buffalo Wild Wings. I think the main entrance will be across from Ruby Tuesday / Chick-fil-a, with a side entrance on Walnut almost across the street from the Mormon church.

My wife really likes the cream cheese muffins at Kroger. So not only did I have to stop there one time during our last visit for some for breakfast, I had to go in again on our last day to get some to take home. And it was Saturday afternoon, not a fun time trying to find a parking space. I have a feeling that it is going to be Spring Street, Food Lion, Aldi and the Farmer's Market for us for food. Except when she just has to have the cream cheese muffins.

Thanks for the info , and pictures on the mall JMT. Can't wait for the Publix since Kroger turned it's back on us Seniors doing away with the Senior discount March 15.


Also, we are ready for Academy. That was our favorite store in Texas.

I know a lot of people upset at Kroger's decision to do away with its senior discount. Publix still offers a senior discount on Wednesdays. I also like that Publix doesn't require one of those idiotic loyalty cards to take advantage of its sale prices; Publix does have some great buy-one-get-one-free deals, not to mention much higher quality store-brand products. Plus, the Publix deli and bakery are tenfold better than Kroger's deli and bakery. Before Publix entered Knoxville, I had friends in Knoxville who would drive all the way to Chattanooga just for the Publix bakery.

I'm excited about Academy, too. And since Academy came sweeping into town last year with a 1.7 million square foot distribution center (largest distribution center in the state under one roof) with 700 new jobs, Academy is a popular face around here. I know they'll do well.

I'm also excited about the restaurants that are part of this development. The ones we know about so far are Panera and Chipotle, with Five Guys rumored.

It's going to be fun to see what other stores will be joining this project.

I'm certain Publix will give Kroger a wake-up call. I like the idea of not having to scan a ridiculous card. Not to mention we already had someone plow into the front-end of our car in the Kroger parking lot.
I'm excited too about what other businesses are coming. I'm ready for Panera.

That's what I thought, too, but County Executive Randy Porter announced that Michael's is part of it. I hope he's right.
