In a move to stem financial losses at two stores, A Southern Season has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection while it reorganizes its gourmet food business to focus on smaller outlets and growing online sales.
The proposal to develop the Lloyd property on N.C. 54 between Old Fayetteville Road and James Street was first presented about five years ago. The Carrboro Planning Board recommended the property be developed under the existing zoning, but no serious attempt to do that was made. The developers seek rezoning for a major commercial and residential development in Plantation Acres, our family’s home for more than 30 years.
The Town Council will consider some Ephesus-Fordham district changes Monday but also asked staff to spend the summer planning for other updates, including guidelines for building and streetscape design.
Southern Season, the longtime Chapel Hill retailer, plans to revamp and expand its e-commerce offerings to boost sales. The strategy is part of an effort to rejuvenate sales in light of its Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.
