St. Pauls is currently experiencing a sudden and welcome economic uptick, with several new businesses choosing to locate here.

The depressed national and state economies of the past few years trickled down and affected municipalities of all sizes and especially small towns like St. Pauls, stymieing growth and development for several years.  But that is changing and changing rapidly, resulting in St. Pauls seeing new economic activity all across the community.

St. Pauls recently welcomed an approximately 42,000 sq. ft. Neighborhood Market, a Walmart grocery and pharmacy. The store, located near McDonald’s just off W. Broad Street, opened in mid-December. , and is now welcoming customers from all across the region and travellers off I-95. The entrance into the store is between McDonald’s (which recently received a total make-over) and the Days Inn Motel.

A Fayetteville-based pediatrician’s office is currently renovating and adapting the former Tar Heel Diabetic Supply building on E. Broad Street. This new professional practice, KidzCare Pediatrics, will fill a big void in care for young patients and is expected to serve a large geographical area.

For those who love pizza to go, there will be two new options in St. Pauls soon. Pizza Hut is readying to occupy its take-out and delivery pizzeria in one of the four bays that will comprise a new business center on S. Fifth Street, beside the brand new Auto Zone. The Auto Zone has transformed the area, replacing a former carwash on its site.  The new development, being called Fifth Street Shops, will further rejuvenate the S. Fifth Street corridor, one of the major entrances into town.

And further down Fifth Street, in the Cedar Plaza Shopping Center anchored by the Piggly Wiggly Grocery Store, Domino’s Pizza has converted one of the vacant spaces into a take-out pizza restaurant featuring a small seating area and delivery, and is eyeing an upcoming opening date. Tailgating just got easier in St. Pauls with not one but two new eateries.

Along Broad Street, in the Central Business District, a new specialty shop, AZ Accessories opened in the building that formerly housed Petal Pushers. This shop was for a time open just west of the new location and returns to St. Pauls by popular demand.

The state certified Industrial Park on NC Highway 20 West is getting some close scrutiny from potential occupants.

All of these developments bode well for the future of St. Pauls, and in part because they could mean more development to come. Stay tuned and watch as St. Pauls continues to grow and prosper.
