I frequent a business at 348 Merrimon and just found out the tenants were told to vacate the building within 30 days because it has been sold to be raised and to become part of a larger commercial complex where the Moe’s is being built next door. I live in North AVL and this is getting out of hand. I remember when Picnics was given hell for having a dancing chicken. How have we gone from that to this?
It looks like Wildflower Studio, an eco-friendly salon, is located at 348 Merrimon Ave. I haven’t heard what else might be built next to Moe’s, but I’ll check. (Moe’s construction photos.)
This section of Merrimon is changing fairly quickly. Dough was built a couple of years ago on the location of another business, Compliments to the Chef, that was in a converted house. A giant billboard was also planted in the yard of another nearby home.
Just a little bit further south, we’ve seen the opening of Trader Joe’s and Harris Teeter in just the past few months. And there’s more to come next door to Harris Teeter, including a Chick-fil-A restaurant.
Readers, what do you think? Is Merrimon Avenue development out of hand, or is this a natural evolution?
