Now Open: Platform 42 (Greer)


Good news for all you gamers out there! A brand new store has opened up in downtown Greer called Platform 42. Pretty awesome location right there in the Greer Station area.

Here’s a blurb on Greenville Online about the store and one from Greer Today.

You can find them on Facebook as Platform 42

Their grand opening times and normal hours will be:

Platform 42 is opening a games, comics and collectibles shop at The Depot, 300 Randall Street Suite E. A 12-hour, 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. opening is scheduled on Saturday.

Store hours are 5:30 – 9:30 p.m. weekdays except Tuesday. Saturday and Sunday hours are 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.

Contact the store at 864-655-7316.


Coming Soon: Firehouse Subs (Powdersville, SC)


Looks like Firehouse Subs is expanding in the Upstate!

New Firehouse subs coming to Powdersville

There is no confirmed date listed on the site on when the location will be open. Check back here in the future as we’ll post it as soon as we find out!

Thanks to Lorri for the tip!



Coming Soon: Biscuit Head (Downtown Greenville)


Yay for more local/regional restaurants! Especially with unique themes. So with that let’s get right to it: Biscuit Head, an Asheville-based restaurant, will be opening up a location here in Greenville. The location will be at South Ridge development which is right off University and Church Street (across from NEXT Center).

Pretty cool concept and hope they do well! IMO you can never go wrong with breakfast places. More details on the restaurant can be found on this UBJ article.

So check out their corporate site and get your belly’s ready for some biscuits!

Building Soon: Bass Pro Shops (I-85/US 101)

Looks like Bass Pro Shops has sealed the real estate deal for their new store! Fantastic news for Upstate peeps! I love Bass Pro! I can drool over fishing and outdoor gear all day long…

More details can be found here. What I find interesting is how aggressive Spartanburg  County is in trying to keep the City of Greer (which spans both Greenville and Spartanburg counties) from annexing the property. Greer has a reputation of being pretty aggressive in that department (just look at their city boundaries and you’ll go huh?).



Coming Soon: Aspen Dental (Greer, SC)

Aspen Dental

Two new retail/service places are opening up on Wade Hampton Blvd across from the Target. One is an Aspen Dental and the other store is supposedly a health foods/vitamin/supplement type of store. I do not know all the info yet on that but will update as soon as I find out.

Edit: Just found out today (10/31/14) that The Vitamin Shoppe will be coming up next to AspenDental.
