What are they building behind the Walmart at Monkey Junction?

Q. What are they building almost directly behind the Walmart on Carolina Beach Road at Monkey Junction?

A. What drivers see out there, at 5111 Carolina Beach Road, is the framing and beginning construction for Monkey Market. The new business, according to the Facebook page, is a drive-thru convenience store with “the best slushies around.”

Owner Stephen Ohm, who will run the business with his wife, Brittni, said the couple have been looking to open a drive-thru convenience store for a while and they were drawn to Wilmington because they love the area.

And the store? Well, it’s going to sell everything a traditional convenience store would sell.

The right side will have 21 coolers and several frozen coolers, too. The left side will have dry snacks and the slushie machine.

For the drive-thru aspect of the store, Stephen said customers should expect to drive around back and through the center of the store.

The Ohm’s hope to open the store early next year.
