Look for the region’s next RaceTrac to rise on sizzling Main Street in Cartersville just off the exit for I-75. Bids are at 2 p.m. Dec. 17 for the store near the McDonald’s and the hotels at the exit, just down from Main Street Marketplace retail center (the new Kroger, etc.). LDI reports the store will be more than 5,000 square feet.
RaceTrac’s most recent opening was back in June in Armuchee at the intersection of Martha Berry and the Connector. That store, at 5,500 square feet, also features its Swirl World frozen treats and prepared foods.
Charbucks Almost Famous Grill opens today in Shannon. The restaurant, which features a marriage of the Charbucks food truck menu and the Almost Famous restaurant in Armuchee, is in the one-time home of Opi’s and On the Bayou just below the Ga. 140/Ga. 53 intersection. “We will be opening up 11-9 Wednesday, Dec. 5.
