Randleman Road

Recommended Posts

What's your opinion on this road? Some of it looks like "the land time forgot" (as someone dubbed the Freedom Rd area of Charlotte)... Is that really old Harris Teeter still open? I didn't drive south of 40 on Randleman, but I drove down towards town and there's one of the oldest Taco Bell's i've seen plus other vintage looking stuff. Well I'll drive down it sometime in the daytime soon and probably write more about what i see

There is alot more modern commercial development on Randleman Rd South of I-40. Randleman Rd North of I-40 looks more run down.

My father owned a convience store on Randleman Rd from 1989-2003. He closed it due to an overload of break-ins. That's not the best area in town.

As far as commerical development goes, Randleman Road is very '60s.

The former Kmart, (now Furniture Liquidators) even after renovation still looks like an old 1960's Kmart. Even some of the street lights on Randleman Rd look like the original ones from the '60s!

that's cool. I guess that Food Lion relocated to the Elm Eugene/Meadowview corner. I'm gonna try this weekend go go around that area and get some pics and hopefully a cool photo tour :)

I wish I had a picture of the old Southside shopping center sign before they replaced it. It was lit in blue neon, and was actually kind of retro-cool. Southside is where Auto Zone once was.

That'll be great! Looking forward to those pictures.

If you happen to stop in that Food Lion shopping center and need some new sneakers for school, there's a Fashion Avenue store there that's suprisingly good.

I recently took my first trip on Randleman Road. It has seen better days within three or four blocks away in each direction from its I-40/I-85 Business interchange. Captain D's, Shoney's, Burger King, Dairy Queen and Taco Bell closed up in recent years. In their places are Chinese and Hispanic eateries and retailers and some urban clubs.
