With the traffic on Bear Wallow now, adding even more will make a bad situation worse. Having an entrance to a store so close to the intersection with Roebling will cause long back ups at the Bear Wallow split. With an entrance to a "major" store so close to the 17/29 light I can see a substantial bottleneck for those cars entering Warrenton from Rt 17. The noise issue of trucks delivering goods as well as trucks emptying the dumpsters (usually a night) will make life in the houses near the store very unbearable.
Please be aware that Wear Wallow is not a commercial street and handles primarily residential traffic to include school busses.
With 5 major grocery store chains in Warrenton already is there a viable need for a 6th? The ultimate result of adding another is a further shrinkage of customers at the existing stores. I guess the question then becomes which will close first. Does Warrenton need another empty large building that in this case used to be a grocery store?
