Someone really named a shopping center that? I want to know the history behind that name. Anyway, the center itself looks cool, and includes a Roses along with a Food Lion in Burlington...

Wow. I'm really surprised the name was allowed. Very weird.

Didn't they "update" the center's main sign maybe 5ish years ago? I seem to remember it being larger and older looking with perhaps an outline of a tree on it...?

Being that I did attend Cummings High School next door to sprite-Park Plaza for two years, we always suggested that they change the name to Cummings Park plaza. I heard too many jokes about that place growing up.

It's been a while since I've headed out that way but I'd occasionally head into Burlington on Hwy 70 back when I lived in Hillsborough in the mid-late '90s....I am pretty sure I recall this being a Schewels although I also remember there being a Heilig Meyers in the plaza....doesn't this store front 70 and is a seperate building from the main part of the plaza? If I recall Heilig Meyers was opposite Roses in the main part of the plaza (over by Wendys) and the Schewels was it's own building fronting 70....that would mean the plaza had 2 furniture stores at once although I doubt that would be too unusual....or maybe I'm confused and this was actually Heilig Meyers for part of the '90s and Schewels for the other part....I'm sure somebody here can clarify :-)

ah ok, that's where I recall them being! So it looks like the store pictured above (1/28) is the old Heilig Meyers location I was speaking of! I doubt Heilig Meyers was the original tenant....have no idea although as a side note I read somewhere that Roses actually opened with the plaza decades ago

It's no worse than the folks in charge of store placement for Alamance Crossing putting a BJ's and a Dick's right next to each other........

If you're around here and have never been to C*m Park Grill, you're missing out.
