Demolition begins to make way for new BB&T facility


Crews begin demolition of the former bowling alley on J.K. Powell Boulevard in Whiteville Monday morning to make way for construction of a $20 million BB&T facility that will consolidate the bank’s various Whiteville-area support operations under one roof. A building at the former flea market will also be torn down as part of the project.
