The Subway currently located in the Times Food Store and gas station on East Main Street in Lincolnton will soon be relocating to the old Generation Bean facility in the Carolina Shopping Center.
Construction on the facility has been under way for a few weeks.
Willie Heafner, who owns the property which will be rented by Subway franchise owner Alvin Long, told the Times-News that the entire building is being remodeled.
â€œItâ€™s a total renovation of the interior,â€ he said, adding that some improvements are also being made to the facilityâ€™s exterior.
Additionally, he noted that new ADA-compliant restrooms are being put in. Previously, the Generation Bean facility received criticism for lacking easily accessible and indoor public restrooms.
Heafner said the opening date for the new location should be sometime in late March. When customers enter the renovated building, Heafner said they will see a â€œtotally new space.â€
Liz Coyle, director of marketing for Times Oil Corporation, which owns the Times Food Store, said they do not plan to seek a new tenant following the departure of Subway. Instead, Coyle said they will expand the retail space of their store.
