Jimmy John’s has confirmed its intention to be City Plaza’s first commercial tenant. The sandwich shop will operate from the Northeast pavilion when the Plaza is opened in October.
However, with all due respect to the purveyors of “the greatest sandwich in the world”, we have plenty of lunch in the downtown area - let’s get some retail in those other three pavilions! As much as I hate to admit it, it’s time for Fayetteville Street to have some big name shopping again. It would be nice if the City’s economy could be based entirely on local business, but that’s probably not going to happen for a long while. In the meantime, people need options for buying stuff downtown.
So, NewRaleigh readers: what major retail outlets would you “like” to see on the 500 block?
