QT store passes Planning Board

March 15. By Dave Vieser. The proposed 5,700 square foot QT Convenience Store at Catawba Avenue and Holiday Lane in Cornelius moved closer to reality when the Planning Board unanimously approved the project, sending it to the Town Board for an April 17 rezoning hearing.

As first reported by Cornelius Today, plans call for the Acropolis Greek Restaurant, a mainstay in Cornelius for decades, to be torn down, as well as the adjacent Citgo and two homes on Burton Lane.

The site is just east of the mast and sail design on the Diverging Diamond Interchange and across Catawba from Cashion’s Quick Stop.

John DiBernardo, real estate manager for QT, said the Oklahoma-based company will continue to expand in the area. A Huntersville resident, he said QT has two locations in Mooresville and six in Cabarrus County.

The Cornelius store will have a total of 15-20 employees, including five or six store managers. Clerks are generally high school and college students, he said. “We had a lot of requests for a location in Cornelius,” he said.

  1. Of course it was approved!! Cornelius will approve anything regardless of the negative impact it may have
    on the residents or the environment.

  2. Will miss the Acropolis a lot. Sad. But understand the owner is retiring and moving back to Greece. Many blessings and thank you for all the wonderful meals and meetings held there over the years. I think I’ll have dinner there tonight. Where will I find chicken lemon rice soup for colds and just to be yummy! Maybe the owner will share the recipe. Wishing them all the best. I sure wish a restaurant was going in there. And not a dang QT. ugh. No more chains in Cornelius please! Except for a Trader Joes. Always want one here.
