The new Harris Teeter anchored shopping center at the southeast corner of Wards Corner has a new name: K & K Square at Wards Corner.
K & K Toys, which existed on the property beginning in the 1970s, was the basis of the future “everything for a dollar” concept that gave birth to Dollar Tree.
The current tenant list for the new shopping center (from left to right, looking at the shopping center): Starbucks, Subway, Great Clips, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Sleepy’s Mattresses, Harris Teeter, Albano Cleaners, GNC, nTelos Wireless, and a vacant 2100sf location. The out-parcel will be a TowneBank branch.
Harris Teeter and the rest of the shopping center tenants are expected to open in February 2014. TowneBank is expected to open in early summer 2014.
