Before summer is over Peachtree Corners shoppers will have new places to eat and shop.

Construction on the Peachtree Corners Market, a new retail center located on S.R. 141 across from The Forum, is expected to be ready to open in July.

Six new businesses are slated to open their doors; Sprouts, a 27,000 square foot boutique grocery store, Verizon Wireless, Piedmont Salon, Sleep Number Beds, PNC Bank and Zoe's Kitchen.

Oh Oh Oh...a Mad Italian would be nice. Keep it young and happy!

I'm interested in Sprouts, but visiting and purchasing items over there would be a rare treat indeed due to high prices. The food looks delicious over at Zoe's Kitchen, but still, high prices. I would go maybe once a month, tops. It seems that both The Forum and Peachtree Corners Market wish to cater to an older, wealthier crowd also known as "the wine and cheese set." One need not look too far up the road to see how those businesses near the Regal Cinemas failed including a health food store and a wine outlet. I wonder if there is enough interest from that demographic to support these businesses. Meanwhile, the younger set do not have choices and the entire area is not pedestrian-friendly.

Every time I drive by there I get angry and sad, seeing all the 'green' gone. Now what do we get to look at? A big cinder-block box. Lovely...NOT!! We DON'T need more retail, another bank and mattress store? Really? I have a feeling this is a preview of what's to come with the parcel the city owns.

What happened to the "smart growth" and proper planning promised by our new city??? Almost everything going into that strip mall is unnecessary and already available within a short distance from this site. Sorry, but aside from "Sprouts" I don't see anything to get excited about. What a waste of greenspace, and what an utter shame that this type of development is allowed to continue unimpeded. I thought the City of PTC truly wanted to thwart the "Golden Rule of Gwinnett" ("Thou shalt not stand between a developer and a tree").
