In about a year, residents of Mint Hill and Matthews may have a new spot to do their grocery shopping. Publix is looking to open a store in Mint Hill. If all goes well, construction is expected to start as early as the first quarter of 2014.
The proposed Mint HIll Commons shopping center would include four other retail/office buildings and is expected to create 132 new morning peak hour trips and 331 new afternoon/evening peak hour trips. For the Essex Communities of Belle Grove Manor, Grove Hall, and Summerwood, the proposed shopping center would be less than ten minutes away and less than 20 minutes away for those living in Canterbury Place.
