In a Facebook post sharing our story about Tri-City Inc.’s plans to revitalize Richmond Plaza in a $2.5 million to $3.5 million makeover — which will include several new tenants — we asked readers which restaurants and retail stores they would like to see in Richmond County. Here’s what they had to say:
I’d love to see a good sushi place!
Would be nice. Bringing back the theater would be great, and maybe a few nicer stores. We need some incentive for other corporations to bring more business.
Coffee shop like Dunkin’ Donuts or Starbucks.
Kohl’s would be awesome and Hobby Lobby!
Something that stays open past 6 on a Sunday. Seriously.
Ross, Target, Marshall’s, Sam’s Club, Sears, PetSmart, Home Depot
Torrid, Forever 21, Panera Bread, Jersey Mike’s, Shoe Carnival, Foot Action… A MOVIE THEATER!
I would love to see Goody’s come back…a coffee shop/pastry place…bringing the theater back would be a good idea too.
Please reopen the movie theater. Much needed for children and teenagers around here!
Kmart, movie theater, Red Lobster, TGI Friday’s Men’s Wearhouse.
Target, Red Robin, Krispy Kreme, Cheddar’s…anything surrounding counties DON’T have. We need a specific variety and our community needs something Moore County doesn’t have that will promote spending and growth in our own community.
Bring back Bi-Lo. I lived in Rockingham in the early ’90s and it was the best grocery store there!
A movie theater like the one in Pinehurst.
Movie theater, Bath and Body Works, Panera, Kohl’s, Hollister, Lane Bryant, Sears, Starbucks, Bed Bath and Beyond.
Target. It’s laughable that we have to drive an an hour and a half (Fayetteville) to two hours (Monroe) just to get to a Target from here.

I hope they reopen the theater, even if it is just two or three movies, it would be something. And they could show more releases, just with staggered listings/times. Even if it was a discount theater that shows not-so-current releases.
Marshall’s and a Longhorn Steakhouse. We have enough chicken places…there’s nowhere to have a good steak around here, we’re taking all of our money to Southern Pines and Fayetteville.
We need businesses that Moore County doesn’t have! Let’s take a few of their dollars for a change.
A new movie theater, Target and Dress Barn would be nice. Wouldn’t have to travel to Monroe, Matthews and Pinehurst to spend our money.

Bed, Bath & Beyond, Bath and Bodyworks, Sears, Texas Roadhouse and a movie theater.
