New Retail Boutique Now Open in Downtown McAdenville



 

Downtown McAdenville continues to grow, now with the addition of 115 Main Gifts & Provisions, an upscale retail boutique located in the heart of the downtown district.

Mona and Jeff Fore, husband-and-wife store owners with deep ties to McAdenville and Gaston County, celebrated the grand opening of their new shop on Sept. 30. A ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Montcross Area Chamber of Commerce, and open to the public, is scheduled for Oct. 6 at 4 p.m.

“Opening a retail space has always been a dream of mine. We wanted to create a place that felt welcoming to everyone, that provided quality products with exceptional service and served as a space that the community could gather,” says owner Mona Fore.

The family-owned boutique sells home décor, gifts and lifestyle products from a variety of lines including Mud Pie, Lizzy James, Simply Noelle, Laura Janelle, Good Paper and a variety of other speciality brands.

The Fore’s are also committed to serving their community through their new space, donating a portion of the store’s profits to local and global charitable organizations. Their first recipient is the McAdenville Elementary School, who’s PTO budget is sponsored by 115 Main Gifts & Provisions.

“McAdenville is rapidly growing and we want to be a part of that success. Our hope is that 115 Main will serve as another proof point to showcase why this town is quickly turning into one of the most desired areas in Gaston County,” says Mona Fore.

115 Main Gifts & Provisions will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. The store will be closed on Sunday.

Town and Market Logo

The owners of Sammy’s Neighborhood Pub in Belmont recently announced that their second restaurant, The McAdenville Table and Market, is coming to downtown McAdenville in late 2017.

The McAdenville Table and Market will offer patrons a market and butcher shop where they can purchase fresh foods, meats, seafood, craft beer and wine in addition to operating as a restaurant that will seat 76 and serve a variety of salads, sandwiches and entrees.

“This new space offers us an opportunity to serve McAdenville and surrounding communities. We want to be a part of the fabric of this town, to serve them good food at a good price and give them a place to purchase fresh produce and meats close to home,” says co-owner Jim Bailey.

The restaurant décor will reflect the heritage and history of McAdenville, exhibiting throughout the space memorabilia and old photographs of the town and textile mill. Additionally, the space will feature exposed brick from the vintage duplex built on the site in 1881 by R.Y. McAden and return the adjacent space to the floorplan of the original McAdenville grocery, Abernathy’s.

“We are thrilled to play a part in the redevelopment of McAdenville’s historic commercial district. We hope to play a key role in the future draw for the region, along with the recently opened salon, the new bridge and future trail system. We want to be a part of the town’s continued growth, blending the authentic and historic with some outstanding amenities” says co-owner John Bailey, Jim’s son.

The McAdenville Table and Market will be open Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

NEW ADDITIONS TO DOWNTOWN MCADENVILLE ANNOUNCED

 

McAdenville, N.C., (Nov. 28th , 2016) –Belmont Land and Investment Company recently announced the third location of William Henry Signature Salon will open on Main Street in McAdenville in 2017. Additionally, The Christmastown Thomas Kinkade Signature Gallery will relocate to a new space, remaining downtown.  
 
“We’re excited to welcome William Henry Signature Salon to Main Street McAdenville. Their decision to set roots here, along with the gallery’s continued support to grow with our downtown, serve as a catalyst for our historic downtown’s evolution to a more retail-oriented business base,” said Bill Carstarphen, president of Pharr, parent company of Belmont Land.  
 
To commemorate the announcement, Pharr Yarns and Coldwell Banker Commercial MECA will sponsor a Networking After Work event on Nov. 29. The celebration is at 131 Main Street from 4—7 p.m. to discuss growing interest in the downtown McAdenville area. Media is invited and encouraged to attend. 
 
William Henry Signature Salon has been a part of the Gaston community for over 60 years, previously known as Ballards Barber Shop, and currently has two locations, in Belmont and Mount Holly. The new salon will take residency in early 2017 and will be located at 131 Main Street, neighboring the Kinkade art gallery at 129 Main Street. 

 

 

"One of the primary reasons we chose McAdenville for our newest location is because of our passion for vision and legacy, we see the opportunity to lock arms with a town rich in this kindred spirit to continue to grow and carry on our legacies together,” said Somer Wilson, co-owner of the salon.  
 
Jay McCosh has been proprietor of The Christmastown Thomas Kinkade Signature Gallery since 2007. In 2008 they relocated from Pineville, N.C. and have called Main Street McAdenville home since. The gallery is moving two storefronts down from their current location this month. The move will allow for a reconfiguration of restaurant space downtown. 
 
“Of course it was a no-brainer to be a part of the charming downtown that Christmastown USA calls home. It’s an exciting time to be in McAdenville. This is a step in the right direction toward prosperity downtown,” said McCosh. 
 
The opening of the William Henry Signature Salon and relocation of the Christmastown Thomas Kinkade Signature Gallery are direct results of ongoing interest Belmont Land has received in regards to the downtown McAdenville area. More announcements are expected to be made in 2017.  
 
The celebration, co-hosted by the Gaston Regional Chamber and the Montcross Area Chamber, is free to attend for members, non-members interested in joining the chamber or the sponsors and media.

This is a summary report on 5, 10, and 15 minute drive times from the center of town.

Upscale Destination Restaurant:

With its rich history, quaint environment, and easy access off of I-85, McAdenville beckons to a destination restaurant that will draw foodies from near and far. With one-of-a-kind options including properties on the riverfront to accommodate water-view dining, the Old Town Library, and other historic buildings, the ambiance is guaranteed to be a hit. During the Christmas Town USA celebration of lights, your restaurant would be an ideal place for guests to linger before or after the tour of lights, while being a destination year-round for people seeking a unique experience.

Coffee & Tea Shop:

McAdenville is a town where people naturally step out of their homes and take strolls to the center of town, down along the J.M. Carstarphen Bridge and wander along the walking trails. It is a place with a deep sense of community, a place where neighbors join together, which is why they are longing for a coffee and tea shop for a “hot spot” to connect, converse, and linger.

Organic and Natural Foods Grocer or Farmers Market:

With more than three miles of walking trails in place (and the Carolina Thread Trail continuing to expand) coupled with a bordering Blueway for kayakers and canoe enthusiasts, McAdenville already attracts families and active adults living a healthy lifestyle. There is a deep desire for a marketplace that carries organic, natural, and locally-grown foods to feed our health-conscious in-town and outer lying residents who are seeking nourishment for their mind, body, and soul.

Ice Cream Parlor:

Talk to some of the regulars at the historic Village Restaurant and you will still hear stories of Mr. Pratt and his soda shop located in downtown McAdenville more than 50 years ago. Our residents’ longing for a traditional, neighborhood ice cream parlor represents a business opportunity that we would like to see licked with the right mix of flavors and flair.

Nostalgic Hardware & Mercantile:

An establishment with a blend of household necessities and nostalgic collectibles, keepsakes and souvenirs is the type of establishment every historic town should have, especially when the residents are asking for it. However, don’t just consider the residents, but also the holidays and Christmas Town USA visitors - where the right merchandising and business hours could bring good cheer to your cash register too.
