Lynchburg, VA – A Lynchburg project two and a half years in the making is now coming to fruition. The Economic Development office has announced a Fresh Market is coming to the corner of Lakeside Drive and Old Forest Road.
There will also be a PetCo, Panera Bread and a few other retailers in that same development.
S.J. Collins Enterprises, based in Georgia, petitioned city council to buy a piece of property in that location. Fresh Market will be a 51,000 square foot development that specializes in exceptional service, quality and freshness.
“I would do the happy dance for you right now because we’ve been working on this for so long, so I’m just really excited,” Marjette Upshur, the director of economic development in Lynchburg.
The Economic Development Office says they hope to see it open in the fall of 2013.
