Shoppers to get more Options

Tri-Cities shoppers will soon have even more options as the Pinnacle development in Bristol, Tennessee announced the addition of the Crescent and Tower Shops.

This next phase of retail and development will include retailers like Carter’s, Party City, GAP, Old Navy, Yankee Candle and much more.

Construction of this phase is expected to be complete by spring 2016.

It was also announced on Thursday that the region’s only CarMax will open in the summer of 2016.

When we spoke to developer Steve Johnson Thursday he says this is really just the beginning.

“I have a strong desire to build a amphitheater to host the biggest acts in the country, and we get music events in here, you know 15,000 strong on a monthly basis, that is the vision,” said Johnson.

Another venue coming to the Pinnacle will be a movie theater.

The Pinnacle 12 by Marquee Cinemas is expected to open sometime this fall.

It will be the region’s largest cinema at 54,000 square feet.

Officials also say construction should soon begin on restaurants like Steak and Shake and Panda Express.
