New Business's Opening

Lincolnton, NC

A&B Sweepstakes (I believe is the name) over at Bilo. Just like the other 7 we have. Go in spend your money. Lose your money. Go home.

El Patron (spelling?) behind bilo. Place has been repainted and new sign and everything. Mexican Resturant.

L-Town Grill coming soon to the old BiG J...Git N Go...Hannnas...Moooses....etc etc... I personally feel this actually is not the best location for a eating place but the kind of store that would go good there is considered outdated here in the year 2012 ... oh well...

In the last week or so the LTNews has had three new items of interest.

1. Ingles being delayed because of Distrubition Center being built for them else where. Building Permit has been had for 6 months and was suppose to start back in March but hasnt.

2. A second Dollar General which LTN reports as a Third for lincolnton. Personally, the one on Gastonia HWY I consider to be in Cherryville but whatever.

3. McDonalds seemingly being eyed in the old Buck Saver lot. Its been cleared off and tanks dug up years ago so its time for something to go in there. I can see people getting mad esp on here about another "burger joint" but.. I think the way its looked at as Boger City and Lincoln County are two different places.

It should also be noted that this should of been expected because of the new hospital. Resturants, Stores and other things will drive toward the new hospital it might take 5-10 years but it will grow around the hospital.

And another point to make is that once a store is built it could replace an older store. Like with Dollar General considering most DGs are stand alones now if a new one is built it could close down the other. Also, there is new group of DGs called Dollar General Market thats being tested in other parts of the states. The market verison could come as well.

Yeah, see the Cherryville Walmart is on Lincolnton Highway, for some reason I was thinking the Dollar General near it was on the same road and then I confused it with Gastonia Highway.

Im not good with roads just landmarks.

and apparently Charter is messing with my location on Topix.

I'm thrilled about Pizza Hut, it's been the same since I was a child..and they will be delivering when they reopen!:)

I havent noticed Pizza Hut but I have to agree its a wonderful idea. The current pizza hut is kind of pointless with out the delivery portion.

I was actually hopeing that they would open one of those delivery only Pizza Huts next door to Dunkin Doughnuts. You know something on this side (Boger City) of town and its different because its just take out and delivery.

I am curious if the remodeling will address this and allow delivery. I swear I have seen online and instore "now accepting applications for drivers" and it was like...they dont deliever do they?

Im not seeing anything on the bakerys facebook page. They do a lot of town meetings and wine tasting, its probably needed.

Hibbett Sports next to Bi-Lo is gone now. But SageSports will be opening soon in its place.

Otto's Pets also moved out and ofcourse Tractor Supply started work.

You can check out the LamarCompanies website and see this color coded map that shows you a list of the stores in the shopping center it sometimes shows you stores that arent even there yet before they are annouced as well as stores that are closing. The ones that are up for lease are most likely going to close if they are trying to shop it around to be leased to someone else.

The Lamar site does list Sage Sports as the replacement for Hibbett. After a google search it appears to be a very similar store with a very similar lay out and style.

The Mexican joints are very nice and the food is prepared fresh. The service is excellent and fast and the food is wonderful. Ain't no soggy s&$t from taco bell gonna compete with any one of them.

I heard someone else over the 4th of July say this same thing about West Virginia transplants, and, little did she know who she was talking to. The guy was from West Virginia and he also had another guy standing there from West Virginia. At the same time without any hesitation, both of the West Virginia guys said,"North Carolina IS the capitol of West Virginia. Did YOU NOT know that?"
The look on her face was priceless.

You should pack up and go back to the 19th century.

There is an add on this site that is causing my typing to skip letters. Sorry in Advance..

Got Pizza Hut a few nights ago website claims it will have a wingstreet but didnt ask. They werent dong the any size any topping deal (or maybe they didnt understand what I was trying order *rolls eyes) delievery starts soon.

Chick Fil A' eh? Old Its? Thats a very odd spot for one and for two this is an old rumor unless it has started up again. Back in may of last year the student advisory started a facebook to get the resturant to come to lincolnton and apparently Chick Fil A' reponsded with "Planning Stages". This was posted on The Carolina Scoop website and you can find the facebook page as well.

The placement is very hard for me to understand as the part of mainstreet has become over crowded with the obvious even with the missing Its the best place for a newer eatting place would be closer to the hospital. Its a double edge sword. Sure, you want people coming off the interstate to see your resturant/fast food place but at the same time those visiting love ones and sick ones at the hospital are very important too and dont forget short drives or even walking distances from Hotels (another win for Its) The better place would probably be further down like around Sentry Drug somewhere.

There are tons of land located around the new hospital that have already been offically zoned for Office and Retail so in theory over night the trucks could move and clear out some space and start the building....and then the complaining will start. lol I have no Beef with Chick Fil A, I have only ate there a few times when I have visited the mall.

The City nor The County website has posted the agendas yet...should be soon considering when they occur.

Yeah, there was that statement in the lincolnton times about mcdonalds a few months ago. Its not unheard of.

If people remember The New Walmart was days from being annouced when they started remodeling the current walmart...seemed a little pointless. And Bojangles just before it moved went through a makeover as well.

So, its certainly possible that the make over mcdonalds is just a "hold" until a new McDonalds could be built in the next two years...and its not like we didnt have two burger kings at once....a long long time ago...:(

The Dollar General was suppose to start in "Expected" August 2012. Its now been updated and says "Permitting" and Expected September.

They are employees at the current DG in Lincolnton (and others I would assume) that are actually in training for when the new one opens. I dont know how long training is suppose to last. But I havent seen anywhere where land has been cleared off for a DG to start. I am guessing it hasnt even broke ground yet.

The New McDonalds should start building in Feb2013 although it could always start earlier or be pushed back. Interesting note the size is of theplace is differen than what the news paper reported. ConstructionJournal places it just a bit bigger and refers to it as a shopping center. Which kind of makes sense if you consider it might be more than just a McDonalds there.

Bankof America ATM has gone up infront of the CashPoints ATM in the family dollar parking lot...odd to be in the exact spot as another ATM but what is intersting is the construction going on behind that ATM across the street. Possible Dolar General?

Murphy Oil Express should start building at the end of October.

QuikTrip is listed as biding in Lincolnton but this couldbe East Lincolnton. I dont travel to East so I wouldnt know. All I know is the listing says Lincolnton. I know there is one in Mooresville his is most likely East Lincolnton though.

A new Medical building or future Medical park is being bid on as well with construction being started at the end of Nov of this year. The bid for this was kind of vague made it sound more like one of those places that build for the future and noting moves into it ever. We have quite a few of those retail wise around lincolnton.

Tanning Place between DOllar General and Dollar Tree is for sale this is intresting to note because up at Big Lots in one of the empty spaces a building permit for a taning salon has been posted for a few months now. Maybe they are moving.
