Since retailers Tuesday Morning and Rogers Brothers Fabrics left Trenholm Plaza in February, owners of the center’s smaller stores say they have been hearing rumors about all sorts of changes coming to the popular Forest Acres shopping center.

Several store owners and managers said they heard that the section of the center closest to the Trenholm Road and Forest Drive intersection would be demolished and replaced by a big-box retailer.

Others said there was talk of several stores near the intersection would be renovated to make room for an upscale restaurant.

“We haven’t heard anything official,” said Beth Pope, a manager at Corma’s health food store.

Regardless of what happens, Hooligan’s Ice Cream & Deli shop owner Ivan Roldan said, “We’re staying. We’re not going anywhere” after 28 years.

Trenholm Plaza’s owner Edens & Avant remains mum about its possible redevelopment — even keeping quiet with their tenants because plans are still preliminary.
