That would be the second Dick's in the triad now. In comparison, Charlotte area has like 9 and the Raleigh-Durham area has 5 or 6.

There aren't a lot of great spots in the Triad for a Dick's. Winston-Salem and Greensboro could get one on their respective north sides, Burlington and High Point could each stand one, but that's only about four additonal locations at best.

Where's the Ashley Furniture coming? I swear I saw a sign for it somewhere, but for the life of me can't remember where

It's not going in the old Rhodes Furniture on High Point Road in Greensboro. That's where Badcock Furniture is locating.

Man, I wish there was a Jimmy John's in Charlotte. I found myself craving that the other day. I know it's just a turkey sandwich, but something about it is very delicious!

I don't think there is another Chipotle in NC, but they don't have any NC locations on their website yet, so I'm not sure.

I would kill for a Wild Wings Cafe in Greensboro. They are all over S.C. and they have one in Charlotte and Asheville. Need a Cheesecake Factory for the Triad also, hmmmmm I am making myself hungry.

^ i think so too. P.F. Changs is a good indicator of what type of restaurants are now considering Greensboro.

I would not be surprised if a Friendly landed Cheesecake Factory. I know Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware are old news in other markets, but I believe Greensboro could support either or both. I think I may have seen an ad in Career Builder for a management position for a Maggiano's Little Italy for Greensboro, this is another chain that would fit well.

Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn's parent, has three stores in the Triad, and adding a Pottery Barn in Greensboro would be a good logistical move. Restoration Hardware is finally moving back into expansion mode, so that's a possibility too.

Maggiano's Little Italy...that would be wonderful :)

today's journal said that the Sagebrush on stratford rd. will be replaced by another restaurant. i can understand the reasoning...a lot of newer steak restaurants are in that area. i wonder what they have in mind.

Sagebrush proabably got a real estate offer it coudn't refuse. Hard to say what will replace it, but it's certainly a good location.

New Sheetz's Gas Station Comeing to Winston-Salem

Sheetzs is kind of an upscale gas station. There is one on Guilford College Road and Wendover Ave in Greensboro.

Its a good possibilty. Friendly Center is actually the perfect place to put one. But you know what, I love Junior's Cheesecakes. They only have Juniors in the northeast though. Cheesecakes by Alex in downtown Greensboro makes great cheesecakes too. Try the Key Lime. :P

FYI, I don't think there's mention of a single locally-owned, non-chain restaurant or store on this whole thread.

How about Strader's Shoe Store in Reidsville at Pennrose Mall? I went by there tonight and was pretty impressed. It's not the fanciest store or in a prosperous mall, but it is a great local business.

So there :P

Is the only one in Forsyth county the Walkertown location? I was shocked that they chose there instead of Winston. But then again, Kernersville/Walkertown area has grown faster than any other in the Triad.
