North Independence Demolished Shopping Center

10 posts in this topic

Anyone have any idea whats going up at the previous shopping center site at the corner of Independence and North Witchduck ? They have completely leveled the entire corner including the area behind Red Lobster leaving a large footprint. I'm thinking (hoping) Target or Walmart. Any ideas ?

Is that where the old Farm Fresh was? If so there was talk a few years ago about a Lowes going in there.

Exactly. The Farm Fresh, a C&M Cafeteria, and the strip center across, as well as, the outer parcel structures have all been demolished. That leaves a huge footprint. There has to be some info somewhere, I have checked the VB.gov site. Nothing.

Yeah as you can see. This was back in 2007.. Lowes is nolonger building anymore stores because of the economy. They are barely making any sales now. why would they build another store?

That area is underserved with regards to home improvement or big box stores. I could easily see a Walmart or a Lowes store going in there.

And why don't think it's Lowes? I see that it was in '07. They are now just getting around to building it. Unless you know otherwise Lowes still owns the land, so who else would be building on it?

It's gonna put that Taylor's Do-it Center on Indi and Haygood out of business. You think?

I could see a Target going there. I love the ones on First Colonial and the other one on the other end of Independence, but that's a bit of a hike from Haygood.

I called one of the Lowes stores was told it wouldn't open until 2013 so they must own the land. I called the Red Lobster on Indy and they said it's not going up for some time either. Could be they are just clearing the land? :dontknow:
