Sam’s Club Readies for Opening, Theaters Rain-Delayed until March

FAYETTEVILLE, GA -- (The Citizen) Time is getting close for the opening of the first businesses at east Coweta County’s new Fischer Crossings commercial development at Fischer Road and Ga. highways 34 and 54, less than a mile west of Peachtree City.

Sam’s Club is expected to open later this month but the NCG Cinemas will be delayed for a few weeks due significant rain in recent weeks that made the installation of the parking lot problematic.

The opening of the 136,000 square-foot Sam’s Club is still on track for later this month. The store’s fueling center on the north side of the store opened in mid-December.

Developer Scott Seymour said the inclement weather and rain-soaked ground around the theater will likely postpone the opening until sometime in March.
