Plans for New Grocery Store Approved


Plans for the construction of a new grocery store in Emerald Isle were formally approved by the Board of Commissioners at its November meeting.  The new store is expected to begin construction in the coming months, with a goal to open in spring 2018.

The new, ~ 31,000 sq. ft. store will be constructed on a mostly vacant 6-acre tract located on NC 58 and Crew Drive in front of the Emerald Landing subdivision.  (An existing small building located on the corner of NC 58 and Mallard Drive will be demolished as part of the project.)  As part of the project, the developer has committed to make significant road and sidewalk improvements along Crew Drive (that will remain a public street) and Mallard Drive, and will also construct a new traffic roundabout on NC 58 at its intersection with Mallard Drive.
