Stuart Greenbaum spoke at last night's Maple Lawn annual meeting, and he said that Harris Teeter on Rte 216 has that official start date five months in the future. Like me, he says that the store looks like they could open far sooner. He says the developers have finished their work on the site, and they would love Harris Teeter to open before October. But the schedule has some connection to Harris Teeter's fiscal year.
Harris Teeter's parent company appears to have a fiscal year that starts October 1.
In other Maple Lawn news, the developers said they're in talks with two people about replacing the Daily Grind coffee shop with a morning/breakfast restaurant. Mrs. HowChow would love a Starbucks. No one mentioned the name of the possible tenant, but Greenbaum talked about how Starbucks is closing stores, so that dream doesn't appear likely. They said they hope to have some news in a few weeks because they want that site occupied for their commercial tenants.
