Well, since I last posted the Sonic on 611 is up and running! The shopping center (strip mall) next to it opened up over the summer as well. It has a Verizon Wireless Kiosk Store, a puppy store, Moe’s Mexican Grill, Dunkin Donuts, Hair cutting place, and a Hibachi place. Personally my 2 experiences with Sonic have not been that great, I’ve been told its what you order but for 2 adult meals and a kids meal that came to $35 I’d rather go to Olive Garden and do their $7 soup/salad lunch.
Across from Lowes is the newest construction going up on 611 – the much needed Giant – the produce in this area is HORRIBLE. Here is to hoping that their fruits and vegetables have an edge on the competition, and honestly it wouldn’t take that much. We personally will take the time to drive up or down(Carbondale or Easton) to Wegmans for their fresh produce. I’d kill to get one in the area! The majority of fruits/vegetables I get from local supermakets goes bad literally within a day or two of getting it. Wegmans produce…lasts literally 10 times longer. Even their bagged potatoes/apples are so far superior. What is “odd” is some of the products are even made by the same manufacturers.
Anyway, so yes, a Giant Supermarket is going in on 611 where the truck stop (Crossroads) use to be. Also going in is a Red Lobster(not a seafood fan so I’m not too pumped), and what appears to be a variety of additional stores. I’ll keep you updated.
