Will a grocery store take the place of the former Dilworth Blacklion?

While it's not known what will take the place of the former Blacklion space in the Dilworth Gardens shopping center, it’s looking more likely a small grocery store could move in.

According to public records, engineering and land-planning firm Kimley-Horn submitted a request this week for “redevelopment of existing Blacklion tenant space for new grocery use.”

The majority of the work is “internal to existing structure,” according to the request.

The space formerly occupied by the home furnishings store, which closed Monday, is 14,200 square feet, a little bigger than the standard Trader Joe’s but about one-third the size of a traditional Charlotte-area supermarket like Harris Teeter or Publix.

Natural foods market Talley's Green Grocery previously occupied the space before it closed in 2008 after 17 years in business. 

Brad Murr – a managing partner MPV Properties, which manages the Dilworth Gardens property – said in an email to the Observer that they’re a “couple weeks away” from announcing the Blacklion replacement. Kimley-Horn could not be reached for comment.

Everyone of us commit mistakes and pay for the charges but through that we learn to know what is right from wrong. We need to be careful of our actions and we should stay humble, seek assistance from God. If you have God in you, you will forget the bad things that are happening in you life, you became strong and never affected of it. So, let God stay in your heart and mind. Have a good day! I hope I inspire everyone here.
