When you’re getting your car washed at Sanford’s new Zips Car Wash, you’ll also be able to grab a deli sandwich and a maybe even sports-themed haircut. The Rant has learned that the plot of land on South Horner Boulevard which we announced as the location of a new Zips Car Wash will also be home to a Jersey Mike’s and a Sports Clips.
The small, currently wooded lot on South Horner Boulevard is between Majestic Auto Sales and a small strip mall with a Dunkin Donuts and Jimmy John’s (there’s been no word on whether the eternal blood feud between competing hoagie barons Jimmy John and Jersey Mike will lead to violence in our streets), and sources tell the Rant that the New Jersey-based sandwich chain and the Austin, Texas-based men’s barbershop will also both occupy the space in the near future.
Many Sanfordians will be familiar with Jersey Mike’s, as a franchise operated at 1907 Bragg St. (now home to Quick Bites) in the late 90s and early 2000s. Sports Clips, where according to its website one can receive a “championship haircut experience in an exciting sports-themed environment,” is entirely new to Sanford, but has multiple Triangle locations.
