Mount Pleasant Upholds Big Box Restrictions



The town Planning Commission upheld limits on “big box” retailers Wednesday night after it heard from more than a dozen people who supported keeping the restrictions.

The residents said they feared scrapping the prohibition would pave the way for large retailers on The Gregg Tract across from Town Centre and possibly in other locations. “It’s changing the character of Mount Pleasant. We don’t want any more big box stores,” said Amy Hardee.

David Meek noted that the town has two Walmarts, a Kmart and a Lowe’s. “It is a protection for us. We don’t need more development in our backyard,” said Ted Summerford.
