Moves were slated in the near future for two Albemarle businesses and possibly a third.

Honeycutt’s Shoes, which has occupied a space in Quenby Mall ever since its opening, was moving downtown to 142 W. Main St. in a store building formerly occupied by Cato’s.

Harris-Teeter Supermarkets was moving into the space formerly occupied by Belk in Quenby Mall. The supermarket would also utilize the space vacated by Honeycutt’s Shoes. Harris-Teeter had already been an occupant of Quenby since the mall opened.

There were also reports that Eckerd’s Drug Store may occupy the present Harris-Teeter facility.
