New but familiar

North Wilkesboro had a Roses discount store for decades before it moved to the Wilkes Mall in Wilkesboro in 1984, and closed a few years later. Now, Roses is returning to North Wilkesboro by occupying the former Lowes Foods supermarket at Midtown Plaza. Roses signage went up this month and renovations of the former supermarket facility are underway. Roses was founded and is still based in Henderson, but was purchased by Variety Wholesalers in 1997. There are about 175 Roses stores, primarily in southeastern states.
