Shopping centers to add new stores

| Saturday, Nov. 30, 2002

Two shopping centers at the junction of interstates 70 and 79 and Route 19 are about to see new construction.

The Giant Eagle at Strabane Square will construct a fueling station and small convenience store, according to a plan approved by South Strabane supervisors.

And land near the Sam's Club at Trinity Point, directly across Route 19 from Strabane Square, will be developed into retail stores including a Famous Footwear, a Dress Barn, a Deals discount store and a Blockbuster Video. Supervisors also approved these plans at their meeting Tuesday night.

Another piece of land, behind the Sam's Club, eventually is to become a fueling station, although Brian Rohleder of Mosites Corp., the developer, said the project has been delayed due to legal issues involving the financing. Construction could begin in the spring and the station could open by summer, he said.

Rohleder said that an Aldi's grocery store and a Red Lobster restaurant are to open in early January at Trinity Point, followed by a Krispy Kreme doughnut shop and a pizza restaurant.

Construction on the Cottrill Pizza Restaurant, to be built behind the McDonald's, could begin by the end of February or March, and owner Sue Cottrill said the opening is expected in June or July. The Krispy Kreme officials plan to open a shop in March or April.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
