The open-air center offers a mix of nationally and locally owned merchants and restaurants, as well as numerous national and region banks like Wells Fargo, Regions Bank, First Citizens Bank and BB&T. The national anchors include JC Penney, which opened in 2005, The Home Depot, which opened in 2006 and Belk, which opened in 2007.
