Construction in front of MacArthur Wal-Mart

You are right that there has been a lot of expansion and replication, but there has also been tons of NEW businesses locating in the region that are NOT replication. The list is quite extensive...Olive Garden, Cheddar's, Panera Bread, Five Guys, Dickey's BBQ, Dick's Sporting Goods, Buffalo Wild Wings, Boston Beanery, Sheetz, Qdoba. These are all NEW businesses. They were not here 3 years ago. How do you explain this? Why do these places want to locate in the Beckley area? Do you not think these companies do a lot of research and investigating before investing money in an area?  (Mar 22, 2014 | post #32)

It is going to be another pain clinic. Here's a link for the article that was in the Register-Herald this past November. http://www.registe r-herald.com/today sfrontpage/x296455 944/Some-doctors-c oncerned-about-new est-pain-clinic  (Feb 1, 2014 | post #4)

Cabell-Huntington Hospital OR expansion??

Does anyone have any SPECIFIC information regarding the Cabell-Huntington Hospital OR expansion? I am guessing that the new addition being built in the rear of the hospital will be three stories tall (given that the OR is on the 2nd floor of the hospital, but is actually the third story because of the ground floor). The only thing I have heard reported is that it is an expansion of the OR. However, if it is going to be 3 stories, what will occupy the ground and first floors??  (Jan 21, 2014 | post #1)

Development near Crossroads Chevy

I have been wondering the same thing. Someone had said that a church is building there, but it seems to be much more than just that. I wish some of the local news media would actually investigate and report on these things.  (Jan 13, 2014 | post #3)

Construction Next to Dr. Jafary's office?

Is something going to be built next to Dr. Jafary's and Dr. Amjad's new clinic next to Freedom Skate Park? The lot next to the clinic is fenced off with yellow metal construction fencing and it looks like there are some markers (flags) in the ground on the site. Just curious if anyone has any information?  (Jan 12, 2014 | post #1)

Affliction Clothing Store coming to Cranberry Creek

No one is forced to shop or eat at any particular place. Why not just be supportive of any economic development that comes to the area? Bottom line, people have to work at these places, that means jobs. Period. Yes, it may not be the best job in the world, but it's a job nonetheless. Just be thankful for the economic growth.  (Jan 8, 2014 | post #11)

Affliction Clothing Store coming to Cranberry Creek

Once again, people are never happy and always find a way to complain and criticize about anything. Everyone always complains about the only new businesses that locate to the area are restaurants, gas stations, banks, and car lots. Well, here we have a new clothing store moving in and people are complaining about that too. What a shock.  (Jan 7, 2014 | post #7)

Affliction Clothing Store coming to Cranberry Creek

Noticed that a new Affliction clothing store is going in the Cranberry Creek Shopping Center between Eye Mart and GameStop. Should be opening before too much longer.  (Jan 3, 2014 | post #1)

Pinecrest Business and Technology Park??

With a new road open through the Pinecrest Business and Industrial Park, what's next? This massive piece of land between Pinecrest Hospital, Beckley-Stratton Middle School, and the East Beckley Bypass has huge economic potential. It's layout along the East Beckley Bypass reminds me of Corridor G in Charleston. Does anyone know of any businesses that are planning on building there? Also, as hilarious as the Red Lobster, Target, and all the other typical responses are, please control your impulses and refrain just this one time.  (Dec 8, 2013 | post #1)

Construction starting next to Grand (formerly John Eye's)??

Thanks! This is very helpful information! Do you know when they are actually going to award a contract to begin construction? I had heard that it would be sometime this winter and work would begin in the "spring. "  (Dec 8, 2013 | post #5)

Construction at the Crossroads Mall??

That's interesting. Guess it would be a better overall location for them. I think they have certainly outgrown their current location at the Beckley Crossing. It's just going to be a bit strange having the SSA in an actual indoor mall.  (Dec 5, 2013 | post #4)

Construction starting next to Grand (formerly John Eye's)??

Thanks! I had wondered if the work going on there may be related to the next phase of the East Beckley Bypass. They are supposed to award the bid for construction of that phase this winter and begin construction in the spring.  (Dec 5, 2013 | post #3)

Construction starting next to Grand (formerly John Eye's)??

Looks like some excavation is starting on the upper side of Grand Home Furnishings (former John Eye's Big Sandy Superstore) on Industrial Drive. Does anyone know what is going to be built there?  (Dec 4, 2013 | post #1)

Construction at the Crossroads Mall??

It appears that there is some construction underway on the backside of the Crossroads Mall where Marquee Cinemas used to be. There is a large portion of parking lot fenced off in that area as well. Does anyone have any information regarding this construction?  (Dec 4, 2013 | post #1)

Road between East Beckley Bypass and DMV

There is a very nice road open now just off the East Beckley Bypass and running to the DMV. It is lined by some very nice street lamp posts all the way through. From that road, there are numerous branches throughout the property that are under construction. It is obvious that this property is going to undergo some major development. Lots of money is being put into its development. I know this is where Dr. Paine's outpatient surgery center is supposed to be built. Does anyone know anything else about this development??  (Nov 17, 2013 | post #1)
