Quaker Village is owned by Ashton Properties in Charlotte. They have worked hard to update the property and bring in new tenants like the Wal-Mart neighborhood store. They have also renovated 44,000 sq. ft. of small shops, expanding the Quaker Village footprint. Quaker Village opened in 1964 and suffered bankruptcy in 2010. It looks as if they are recovering nicely. We sure hope, so as it is nice to see places that have been around for over fifty years get updated, as needed, and continue to thrive.
The QV strip mall is very convenient to people living off West Friendly Avenue and the New Garden/College Road area. There are stores like Starbucks and Menchie's Frozen Yogurt that encourage people to linger and socialize. There are plenty of restaurant options from Mexican, Taquería El Azteca, to Italian at Elizabeth's Pizza. There are other shops like Quaker Village Barber and Style Shop that have a good reputation for keeping clients happy through the generations. With Guilford College just across the street, students are able to enjoy time off-campus even if they don't have a vehicle.
