Q: Rumor has it that the new building under construction on Hanes Mall Boulevard in front of Lowes Hardware is going to be a new P.F. Chang’s. I hope this is true.
Answer: Sorry to disappoint you, but that rumor is false. According to city building permits, the site location you are most likely referring to, at 920 Hanes Mall Blvd., will be a mattress store.
“We do not currently have plans to build a new P.F. Chang’s location in the Winston-Salem market,” Allison Schulder, vice president of finance for P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, replied when asked if there were any plans to put a restaurant here.
The nearest P.F. Chang’s is in Greensboro, at 3338 W. Friendly Ave.
