I rarely shop @ Food Lion, but I would have to imagine that Aldi took a serious chunk of their business away from them.

Personally - I keep hoping for a Trader Joe's!

No way could Belmont support a Trader Joe's. I don't see anything taking that Food Lion spot really. That shopping center is dead ugly, as the one across the road. Nobody moved into the auto whatever store vacancy either. It's too bad, I don't really know what they could do to make that area more desirable.

How much you want to be it becomes a thrift store? Maybe a Goodwill at best. That would serve the community at large unlike a Trader Joes. I went there once and thought what's the big deal? They have about 1/3 of what I buy on a weekly basis and the prices weren't that great. I say we should be happy to have Aldi's and quit wishing for something our demographics don't support.

Wake up people; Belmont doesn't even support Belmont. The people from Gastonia, Charlotte, Mt. Holly, Lake Wylie, Clover and people coming off 85 support most of downtown. Yea, we have our regular old spinster drunks at BF&B, the smelly redneck trailer park drunks at Friends, the Ghosts of Belmont at JAX LOL, The I don't know what kind of regulars at The Bean. I hope they have a better business plan with their brewery. I think The Belmont Brewery is adequate and their signature specialty drink should be Beer Enegmas Daily. That will get all the drunks get drunk quicker and out of downtown quicker too. What do ya thunk?

Trader Joe's isn't expensive, nor is it incredibly cheap. I wasn't all that impressed the first time I went to one either. I used to go by the one in the Universty area once every other week when I was working in the area as it was convenient, and now I miss their prepared meals and frozen foods. Bi Lo would still be my goto store though.

Belmont's demographics is changing and becoming more affluent. I could see a Trader Joes being supported before a Harris Teeter or Lowe's Food.

Let's see- before the growth spurt, Belmont had Harris-Teeter, Winn-Dixie, Bi-Lo and Food Lion. Now we are left with Bi-Lo and Walmart ( Aldi doesn't count). What did our grocery market in? One word - WALMART. We told ya so.

Also- Belmont is a " sick" place....we can only support a couple of grocery stores but we have six pharmacies ( would have been 7 if Rite Aid was still open)?

Not necessarily "sick", just over medicated! Compliments of SPFP and doctors in general. It's the way the system works.

Make the entire area part of Mt Holly or Charlotte; just have to reconfigure/extend the Catawba bridge up to Taco Bell. It goes with that part of 74 going east right up to Nichols at Old Dowd.

I'm pretty surprised the Sake Express has done so well over there. It's got no direct road access and it's pretty expensive. Do they have I-85 signage? I never noticed any.

I have never seen interstate signage. Call it good food at good prices, word of mouth, and they do advertise in Gaston Alive CONSISTENTLY. Good for them. Now, they have three or four locations after the first one opened at the locale we are speaking of across from Food Lion.

Sake has several billboards on wilkinson blvd and multiple locations but they could be more consistent with food quality.

Sake is one of the best restaurants in Belmont. Consistently great food at good prices. And - the kids are friendly and mannerable and take care of their customers.
