Belk, Panera going up quickly
After years with little new development, Salisbury residents are watching quick progress on two high-profile projects — the new Belk and Panera Bread.
Belk plans to move from the Salisbury Mall in October into an expansion of Wallace Commons on Interstate 85 at Julian Road, alongside Michael’s Crafts, Ulta Beauty and Shoe Carnival.
Panera plans to open its first restaurant here by July on East Innes Street, also near the interstate.
Just behind Panera, Big Lots plans to leave the mall and move into the nearby Office Depot building in May.
