New and seasoned residents at Lake Boone Shopping Center

City Editor Cat recently popped over to Lake Boone Shopping Center to check out what’s new and coming soon, and to try a few established eateries.

City Editor Cat here. I recently moved from downtown to near the NCMA — I have been getting familiar with my new marketplaces, including Lake Boone Shopping Center.

A hidden gem near UNC REX Hospital, this complex is outfitted with local businesses like Randy’s Pizza and Chubby’s Tacosyum, I frequent both — but will soon include a new row of both local and national eateries to its retail lineup.

Popular fast-casual chain Chicken Salad Chick will be the first to welcome guests with its grand opening set for next Tuesday, Nov. 14.

Other additions include two NC-based eateries, The Butcher’s Market — opening Dec. 1 — and Duck Donuts.

Additionally, the McDonald’s was recently demolished to be rebuilt, and the Chick-Fil-A is currently closed for renovations.

Two more places I have grown to love in this shopping center are Unleashed for my pup Tucker’s treats + food, and family owned restaurant Sushi-Thai for dishes like General Tso’s Chicken and creative sushi rolls + burritos.
