I have heard so much, I heard that walmart was buying the mall, lowes coming to walmart, applesbees beside the bbt bank and krogers where belks was, and I know now that shilohs and coal fired pizza is for sure coming and shoe show is getting bigger but does anyone really know if all the rest of the rumors is true.

I heard today that the mall was definitely being sold. The part where Big Lots the Clinic and the mexican place will remain but be remodeled and a walmart will be built where the mall part is from Belk to Goodys. I also heard that Goodys, and the rest of the stores from the mall will be relocated to a new place beside bb&t bank. Also I noticed my last trip to town that the for sale sign at the old Data Futures place was gone. Whats going on there? Thats a good piece of property. I also had heard before that Otis Doan and someone else were trying to get a Sonic franchise. Of course this is all rumors I wish these things would happen for our town though. The mall is dead.

what are they doing beside the gas station under the hill if anything? Just seen some dozier work going on there the other day. I was in walmart one day and heard a girl who works at shoe show talking about they are moving to a furniture building but not sure which one she said and was talking about how big it will be. Evarts is supposed to be getting a subway by the family dollar also.

The rumor is Lowes will go in the old Walmart building. Shoe Show is going in the old Lee furniture place by Food City.

A super walmart and a Kroger in the same complex? Not going to happen. Lowes in harlan, yeah for all the new home construction and all the extra money us struggling people have to spend fixing up our HUD houses. I swear you people kill me with all this hype. I am lmao about all these rumors. Shilos, yes. Pizza place, yes. Tractor supply, yes. All the rest is just speculation and rumors people. Coal is dying and so goes the communities that are supported by coal.

I know there are rumors of all kinds of things coming to town right now. more than I can ever remember. Last night I was reading this forum and thought about the fast food place Pals that they have around teh Tri Cities and over in Norton and thought hmmm that would be awesome in Harlan. So I emailed them and got a reply today!

**********their reply**********

Areas in south east Kentucky are on our list of places to build including Harlan. We do not have a set timeline but we have look twice in the past two years at property in that area and look forward to expanding to your town

Everyone should email Mr Crosby and let him know we would love to see them in Harlan. I know these arent the highest paying jobs, but any job is better than no job! And Harlan is apparently on their radar. More business is good for our town and especially outside investments. Contact Mr. Crosby at [email protected]

Lets make things happen for this place!

All this positive thinking is great, but lets be honest the economy and Harlans main resource is in the tank. No smart business representative would locate to a ghost town. I think the Tractor Supply will be alright because people are tired of Southern Wholesale. If you bring in fast food they will just cancel some other fast food place out so as many jobs would be lost as would be brought in. What Harlan actually needs is some sustainable employment such as an established company factory. Harlan needs real paying jobs and without them lets fact it there is just not any money to spend.
