In the North Hampton Market and in the former location of the Tutti Frutti will be opening a Kay Jewelers. Also, the old Papa Murphy’s space looks like it’s getting renovated as well. Not sure what will be going in there.

Down by the Hampton Village area in Taylors is a coming soon sign for the Highway 55 burger location that will be occupying 2 spaces of the new retail space that’s just finished being built. Starbucks is supposedly occupying the last space in that new area.

And it looks like the construction going on in front of the Wade Hampton HS and off WHB is the rumored Lidl grocery store and some other shops. And only a few more days till the newly renovated Aldi’s will be back open in Taylors!

There is also a good bit of construction happening down near the IHOP. That old hotel area is totally cleared out and looks like infrastructure is starting to be laid down for maybe retail or offices? Not sure.
