South of Hickory is now grocery store depleted.

WHY? Gone are Harris Teeter, Lowes Foods, Bi-Lo, Honey IGA, Galaxy, all have exited in the last four years. NOTHING in their place?

WHY? Food Lion or Walmart is it.

WHY? Is local politics responsible? Who/what is preventing grocery stores from coming to Newton, Claremont, Conover, Maiden, or Catawba? Your customers/subscribers NEED TO KNOW.

Why is this being done all of this area?
