Also nearby is this building (above) which is undergoing a major renovation. Word on the street is that it is going to be transformed into a high-end art gallery.
In this same section of Merrimon, the market Dough opend at 372 Merrimon; Frazier’s Tavern took over for another bar at 389 Merrimon and Bar of Soap, the laundromat/book shop/restaurant, opened at 333 Merrimon. All this over the past three two or three years.
And of course we are all familiar with the big changes along Merrimon just a bit closer to town: A new Trader Joe’s opened next door to a new Harris Teeter last year, with a new Chick-fil-A opening next door to the HT just a couple weeks back. And there’s more development coming to that Teeter complex.
