he will once it dies from no major anchor. Look for Sears and Dick's to go next and JCP will dissolve on its own. It will be cheap property then.

Why would Belk move to a 9.5% sales tax location when Bristol Va Falls project will only have 5% sales Tax.
The 2 projects are only 10-min drives apart? I think Belk's has made a mistake on that score...

I agree. Belk loses my business as I refuse to pay the Tennessee tax rate. Most of the local Tennessee residents shop on the Virginia side due to the lower rate, especially where grocery purchases are concerned.

Unless Belk knows something we don't. I'm sure they made that choice because of something and I agree, logic would say put it at exit 5 with lower tax and more PR towards the development, but something made them close closer to kingsport. The Belks in Kingsport just signed a new 5 year lease, so I think they picked johnsons for one of two reasons. A. His has a better chance of filling up since its underway. B. eventually close down Kingsports for one central market location. Or it could be both, unsure.
