I hope this is true, we need some new stores in Welch. They never should have taken our Big Lots to begin with. That store was always packed with people and it was the best Big Lots that I have ever been too, bad mistake when they closed it on whoevers part.

closed many stores in rural areas the last decade, the Big Lots a few miles outside Mullens closed about 10 years ago. Also Big Lots tended to move into aging facilities and never built their own buildings, the one in Welch used to be Super S Discoumt, my feeling is the buliding was damged in the floods of 10 years ago

We do need a Autozone or Advance Auto in Welch, either would do good business.

A Welch Preacher at one time was wanting to buy the building for his church. The owners in Mercer County were asking $100,000.00 for it. Rent was $800.00 a month. I'd say now they want more.

Welch had a auto parts store before. The owner of the building went was up on the rent. They had to close down.

If anyone opens a business in the Welch area, They should build their own building. Like the Dollar store next to the subway store.

And we sure don't need another cheap/junk store like Family dollar.

ADVANCE AUTO AND FAMILY DOLLAR IS MOVING IN THERE THEY ARE SPLITING THE STORE UP. THE FAMILY DOLLAR ON THE MAIN ROAD NEXT TO MCDONALD'S IS MOVING OUTTA THAT STORE AND MOVING DOWN THERE. I TOO WISH THEY HAD A DOLLAR TREE OR BIG LOTS. SOMETHING OTHER THAN WALMART. WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOME OF THE OTHER SHOPS LIKE THEY HAVE AT THE BLUEFIELD WALMART COME AND BE BUILT AROUND THIS WALMART HERE SO WE CAN KEEP THE MONEY HERE IN THE COUNTY. LIKE CATO, BURKES, OTHER STORES . I HATE RUNNIING ALL THE WAY TO BLUEFIELD TO EAT A GOOD STEAK. WE NEED A TEXAS STEAK HOUSE OR APPLEBEES OR SOME GOOD FINE DINNING RESTURANT HERE . TOURISM WOULD PICK UP MORE IF WE HAD THAT. KFC IS ABOUT TO BUY THIER LAND AND THE COUNTY IS ABOUT TO BUY THE OLD HARDEE'S BUILDING ON OUT BUT WHAT THEY DO WITH IT I DONT KNOW. THAT IS WHAT I HEARD . HOPEFULLY THEY WILL BRING SOME MORE BETTER RESTRAUNTS IN OR SOMETHING .

Tudor's was supposed to go in the Hardee's bldg. Haven't heard anything else about it. I surely do miss Hardee's. Can't stand McDonald's breakfasts. The gravy is like white paste. What is really needed here is Taco Bell. I'm sure they won't come here, though. I believe people think that McDowell countians don't eat! I think they would do great business here. When Big Lots closed, the mgr. told me that they paid $6,000 a month rent. That was the best store in the county. Walmart or anyone else can't compare to their Christmas and fall stuff. Absolutely beautiful.

I agree, the mgr knew how to run Big Lots successfully, bottom line is someone screwed up letting that store leave McDowell County. McDonalds breakfast suck, you may as well just ask for an egg biscuit instead of bacon & egg because they put 1/3 of a piece of bacon on the biscuit. I don't know what happened to Tudors coming in, I heard they said it wouldn't get the business that Pineville gets, another excuse to not do something good in the county. Tudors would do great here. It was probably McDonalds bucking against it.

FROM WHAT I HEARD AND WAS TOLD TUDORS WAS NOT WANTING TO MAKE REPAIRS THIERSELF AND DID NOT WANT TO PAY HIGH RENT IF SHE MADE THE REPAIRS SO IT WAS STILL BEING WORKED THROUGH. THE COUNTY GETTING THE LAND IS A NEW ONE TO ME I WAS JUST TOLD YESTERDAY THEY WERE GOING TO SELL FROM THE OLD HARDEE'S BUILDING OUT AND KFC WAS GOING TO BUY THIER LOT STRAIGHT OUT. TACO BELL IS NEEDED HERE. ALONG WITH OTHER PLACES TO EAT. NOT ONLY WILL BE BE MORE REVENUE COMING IN FOR THE COUNTY BUT ALSO MORE JOBS THAT ARE NEEDED.

I read in BDT last month that target is looking to purchase land in McDowell county in hopes of opening a target store in 2013-2014. Hope it works out. Also,across from WCH, is that the location for the 12 bed women's drug rehab?

i think that if they torn down the old abandon buildings and rebuild them where there would be a parking underneath the buildings and have the buildings raised in case of a flood. been done in dc on the water front where flooding is prone and many business have come in to do business. just an ideal. build more homes that are up to grade like southern council of the mountains are doing that people can own.

I don't think that any big business will invest here because there just isn't any money here.
