First, a thank-you to the readers who wrote in with suggestions for our new "Because You Asked" feature. We've got folks working on tracking down the answer to a few of them.
The answer to one of them bounced in our lap, and so, hey, let's get it out there.
BCR reader Dottie wrote in to ask:
When will the new Lowe's on Martin Luther King, Jr. Parkway and [Fayetteville Rd.] open?
Well, we didn't end up doing too much sleuthing to find this one out; the answer actually turned up in a news story printed over at Triangle Business Journal:
Lowe’s will open one of its home improvement stores in south Durham by early August, adding 175 jobs to the area.
Construction of the 117,000-square-foot facility at the intersection
of Fayetteville Road and Martin Luther King Parkway is largely
complete. All that remains is for it to be stocked and employees hired.
So -- there you have it. Early August it is.
