Mickey Chance, who owns the Wilmington Golden Corral at 5130 New Centre Drive, has been working on bringing a Golden Corral to Shallotte for more than a year. Plans for a site near Beach House Harley-Davidson fell through last spring, but Golden Corral’s Development Committee approved Chance for the site near Naber Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM on Dec. 5.
“Site work was to begin April 12. However, Mr. Chance is still awaiting final approval with a couple of issues,” said Barbie Wolf, executive assistant for Golden Corral Corp. in Raleigh. “Should be under way soon. After construction actually begins, it takes anywhere from 120 to 185 days to build and open.”
A more specific time frame for completion will be available in late June or July, she added.
UPDATE: The restaurant opened on Aug. 3, 2012.
