Carolina Circle Mall - No groceries anymore?

Recommended Posts

Ok, so with the demise of the Carolina Circle Mall, and the redevelopment of this area put on hold via Mr. Linder, and with the closing of the Winn-Dixie on Cone Blvd. (tentative date - Aug. 31) where are people who live in the 10 sq. miles around the mall area supposed to shop for groceries. It's kind of far to have to drive all the way to Battleground Ave. If someone knows of the closest grocery store other than the Winn Dixie which is going to close, please post your info.

here's a 2-mile radius map around CCM, of chain grocers. (there's also a food lion at Lees Chapel and Church which i forgot to add to this image)

Now, there IS a Save-A-Lot store near that Winn-Dixie..

And there's the weirdest shopping center ever that has a HT and Food Lion in the same strip...

Thanks for that map!

Of course I really didn't mean they'd have to drive 10 miles, but that HT/Food Lion plaza is pretty far considering a lot of the people that live near the CCM ride the bus and don't have a car. Plus I have heard there are serious doubts about how long that Harris Teeter will stay open in that area of town. The Sav-A-Lot may be the only saving grace for the people around the CCM if the Wal-Mart thing doesn't go through.

That harris teeter is crappy.. but it's the closest to the upscale Irving and Fishe Park neighborhoods. I SAY... Build a MUCH nicer Harris Teeter in the CBD

That crappy Harris Teeter at Golden Gate and High Point might do better for a while after the Winn Dixies close, but those areas aren't exactly Ht's favorite spots either. Like I have mentioned previously in some forums, Harris Teeter seems to favor the upper class clientel and usually exits all the lower to middle class neighborhoods eventually. Even though their employment philosophy tries to convey that they are "diverse," what diverse company keeps shutting down stores in all lower class areas of town? Thanks for the lesson in diversity HT!

^yes it is.

There is also a shopping center in High Point with a crappy Harris Teeter and Winn-Dixie in the same strip

Oh yeah, High Point Mall! It's on Eastchester Drive, but the Winn-Dixie's been gone for some time. The replaced it with a Books-A-Million for a while, and I think that's gone now and there's something else (like a PetsMart) in its place.

What's funny is that most of the early large suburban shopping centers would have two supermarkets and a lot of them would have two drug stores and two variety stores, also. I can think of several examples like this.

Harris Teeter is ruining their once nice store on the corner of Pisgah Church and North Elm street. It is undergoing a "renovation" that is making it look more like a Food Lion than a Harris Teeter. Any other Harris Teeters that anyone knows of that have gone through this .

^ It's funny how stores like Harris Teeter will put so much money into renovating certain stores that are in good shape (cough, Morrocroft, cough) but yet invest no money in others that need the help.

Here's the front of the Harris Teeter Eastland store from the Mecklenburg County Tax website.

According to it the 34774 square foot store opened in 1976

They haven't updated it [the logo] on Providence Commons' store either though

If I was one of those properties' landlords, I'd be a little concerned about whether HT was going to stick around.

The new logo is on their website, but the funniest thing is their new jingle..."It's part of you and part of me..My Harris Teeter." Classic! Especially when the customer smiles when he looks at the meat...It's been on local TV all week...

Here's a better pic of the Providence Commons store.. STILL has the old Harris Teeter logo (it was built right before the switch).. but at the corner of Ballantyne Commons and Providence. There is a Harris Teeter store at Rea Village (.75 miles away)

Believe it or not this store does less business than the Weddington Rd. HT or the HT at Rea Village. I think because it is fairly hard to get to from the other side of the road during rush hours.
