A rumor has been floating around for sometime McAlister’s Deli will take the spot of the closed Pepper’s Deli on Market Street in Baxter Village. As it turns out, McAlister’s Deli has announced on their website they will be opening soon in Fort Mill, SC – Baxter Village.
The Fort Mil Times and Rock Hill Herald reported Thursday McAlister’s Deli after renovations, will open mid July2012. The article also confirmed McAlister’s had tried to buy Peppers Deli for quite some time but could never come to terms. Clear Springs Development, leasing company and developer for Baxter Village, had lease offer from another restaurant but could not take leasing action due to legal issues surrounding Peppers Deli. Obviously, the legal issue has been resolved. (link to Fort Mil Times Story).
It will be nice to see the vacant space on Market Street in Baxter Village filled with an operating business. We are seeing signs of positive growth in our area with new businesses opening. Another restaurant has a planned opening later this month in Tega Cay called Carlos Cafe, see our post Carlos Cafe Coming to Teg Cay
