Matthews expected to pave the way for new grocery store

MATTHEWS, N.C. — A vote by Matthews town commissioners will pave the way for a new grocery store in town.

Commissioners will approve the building materials for a proposed 13,500-square-foot grocery store in the Matthews Gateway development on East John Street.

On Monday night, town commissioners approved further discussion for a mural and other aesthetics associated with the plan.

The grocer has not been officially announced, but the renderings have a font that looks similar to a Trader Joe’s.

Channel 9 has reached out to the grocery store to ask if they are building here. A spokesperson said the grocer is always looking for new neighborhoods to expand in, but they have no news to announce for Matthews yet.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
