Here’s a quick look at what the construction sites for the new Trader Joe’s and Harris Teeter stores on Merrimon Avenue. Both stores should be opening later this year. The two sites are adjacent to one another at the intersection of Merrimon and Chestnut.
There’s on ongoing debate about what else might locate on the Harris Teeter site. Asheville City Council debated the topic on Tuesday. Word on the street is that a Chick-fil-A and a Chipotle want to put restaurants on the site.
