From what I've heard it will be behind the new McDonald's. I'm very excited to see it moving in as well. Another good business for our youth to work at while staying close to home.

Food Giant is overall, more expensive than Kroger. A new Kroger would have been much better.

Who cares what chain of store it is dude?!?! As long as it has meat, fresh fruit, and veggies what does it matter? It beats Dollar General any day of the week

There will be more businesses to come fill up that area as Medina continues to support whats there. Anyone know what's next?

That's good that the city is setting itself up for responsible growth, or at least I hope it is. I kind of think a DG is kind of a cheap fix, but Chik-fil-a is decent and maybe a steak house will be put up too. I think it shold be important that Medina have a building code. Not something that's too uptight like the ones in Germantown.

Any talk of turning hwy152 and 45 intersection into a bridge with exit ramp? It might be cheaper to do now, than a decade down the line, should the daily traffic count increase. Which I believe is trending towards that way. I heard Milan has close to 5,000 people these days, and might become thefirst official burb of Jackson. Just pondering, but how much groth can the city support at the moment?

The town can hold much new growth..People love to criticize but the leaders in Medina are all about growth and keep looking and planning into the future.They are making contacts to better meet the needs of the citizens...Jackson should take notes

More chains isn't really 'good' growth. I've never understood the clamor for a "wendy's" or something else like that. Is the ability to get the same stale tasteless food that you can get on any corner in Jackson really all that exciting? A healthy Medina is one with multiple quality locally owned business.

it's called being good for sales tax, DUH!!!!!! Are you really that dumb? Anyway you can get them, you do it. Since you want locally owned stores, why don't you open one up? Until then, allow them to come in, but don't do it with no plan for sustainability. That's why I mentioned some kind of building code, so you could ween out some of less desirable chains, AKA Dollar General
