Partnership News Release:

Edenton/Chowan County area can support 2nd Grocery Store

A consultant specializing in grocery store location research says there is enough market potential for another grocery store in Edenton/Chowan County. Kevin R. Anderson of Greenville, SC recently presented his findings to the Edenton Chowan Partnership’s Economic Development Committee. The Partnership, plus funding from ElectriCities, hired Anderson to study the area to determine if the market is strong enough to support a second grocery store. The Town of Edenton is a member of ElectriCities, the entity that assists public power communities in managing and operating municipal electric distribution systems.  (For the rest of the News Release (Grocery Store Study News Release 051316) and to download the PowerPoint presentation on the research Grocery research Edenton 051016.)
