  1. Is Haywood the next McAlister?

    Panera is moving into a freestanding location out in the parking lot near Wells Fargo in the next year or so. The new location will have a drive thru. I asked one of the employees why they were moving and she said "the mall is kicking us and lens crafters out. I guess Cheesecake Factory can pay more per square foot". I asked if I heard her right and she said "you didn't hear it from me". Not necessarily 100% confidence but she obviously heard it from somewhere. She was older and said she had never even heard of Cheesecake Factory until panera got the news. Take it as you will...
  2. I heard Orvis was interested in the large space on the back corner (Laurens and Washington). When I called the Asheville location the associate said there was a rumor that Greenville would be getting a location but she wouldn't specify where. Orvis would be great there!!
  3. South Ridge (Church St. and University Ridge)

    Why "value oriented" retail? Does that mean something like Family Dollar?

    You are both correct. When the two stores first closed they emptied them out and took all the furniture back to the warehouses. A liquidation company bought the all the furniture in the warehouses including brands other than Thomasville and Drexel. The liquidation company is now renting the buildings and using then to sell all the furniture. I only saw 1 piece of actual thomasville furniture in the thomasville store. The rest of it was junk. Sad.
  5. CONSTRUCTION THREAD: Magnolia Park Town Center

    What is Babaziki Restaurant Services? The UBJ says they are at Magnolia Park with Firebirds and Bad Daddy's. It doesn't speak of Toby Keith's or Dave and Busters at all.
  6. CONSTRUCTION THREAD: Magnolia Park Town Center

    Or maybe they are trying to create more of a lifestyle center than just retail. Even though they don't have housing I guess BCBS might bring in people who wouldn't ordinarily visit MP to shop. The whole development seems to be catering to a broader band of people. Maybe it will work. I'm still just confused...
  7. CONSTRUCTION THREAD: Magnolia Park Town Center

    I can't figure out what direction this development is going (other that the downward spiral from what we were initially given). I guess any kind of business is welcome, retail or not.
  8. CONSTRUCTION THREAD: Magnolia Park Town Center

    Menin has signed leases with Jared, Golfsmith, and Blue Cross Blue Shield according to the Menin website. I wonder if Golfsmith will go into one of the buildings between Toys R Us and Cabela's?
  9. Haywood Mall Retail

    I heard yesterday that Victoria's Secret will soon be renovating and downsizing, leaving a substantial available space. Also they wanted to use the old Bakers spot as a temporary location but the landlord said it had already been leased. Anyone know anything?

    Sports Authority will be closing for good on February 23rd. They are not reopening anywhere else on the site.

    I've searched for the logo that looks like a guitar but I can't find it. Is there any way to enlarge the map without making the images blury?
  12. CONSTRUCTION THREAD: Magnolia Park Town Center

    Is it odd that with all the press releases in the past few days, Dave and Busters hasn't been mentioned in any of them? Toys R Us and others have been mentioned. Was it approved? Is it still in the works?

    By the way, any new news on Dave and Busters??
  14. CONSTRUCTION THREAD: Magnolia Park Town Center

    With all the new announcements coming soon downtown and the recent additions to Haywood, I wonder when Magnolia Park will make some substantial announcements...
  15. I called the Brooks Brothers Asheville store today and the manager said they are definitely going into One and will be open on September 15th.
