A while back we posted here and here about Lowes Foods coming into the Upstate. Seems they finally broke ground yesterday.
Lowes will be atypical of its new prototype, built from the ground up, with products added between now and its scheduled opening in late summer or early fall 2016. About 100 “hosts” will be employed with “casting calls” for the more “entertaining jobs”.
So for folks living in the Riverside area – Suber/Hammett Bridge Road area – you’ll be excited to see this finally coming to fruition over the next year or so!
Although Greer will be their first location it won’t be the last. They are aiming to open around 5 stores in the Upstate! Nice!
Edit: April, 24 – Looks like the construction/coming soon sign is up! Awesome!
A while back we posted about the rumors that Aldi will be opening up a store in Greer. Well it’s now confirmed news! Awesome!
Here’s the full scoop:
Aldi is entering the Greer market with a 17,000-square-foot grocery store to be built at Poinsett and Wade Hampton Blvd, at the former site of the D & D Motors used car lot.
The store will occupy 1.9 acres of the 7.9-acre parcel. The remaining six acres will be developed later.
Construction will begin in mid-March and the store is tentatively scheduled for a fourth-quarter opening.
This is fantastic news! Again showing that Greer is hopping! (I’m biased since I live in Greer).
So Harris Teeter is coming back to the Upstate! That’s fantastic news for everyone. Their new location will be at the redesigned Lewis Plaza off Augusta Road. Tentative open date will be sometime in 2016. Reason why it’s so far off is that they are totally redoing Lewis Plaza. So there is a lot of construction that will need to happen to prepare for their anchor client.
It sounds like a fancy grocery store to boot! 2 story, outdoor seating, etc. Great news for those off Augusta Road and near Downtown area.
A longer article with all the details is posted on UBJ.
So rumors have been swirling for a while that The Fresh Market would be opening a 2nd store in the Upstate area. Well, a couple of savvy peeps have put 2 and 2 together and looks like that the second Fresh Market will be coming to the Upstate!
Here’s the scoop from Carolina Knight
I am presently reading the listing for The Woodruff Center, located at 1635 Woodruff Road, Greenville, South Carolina 29607-5930. The Fresh Market appears as a highlight, “located near the new Fresh Market grocery store,” and in the description, “0.2 miles from the new Fresh Market grocery site at the corner of Woodruff Road and Rocky Creek Road.”
Although The Fresh Market has not announced the new location through an official press release, the aforementioned listing confirms the chain is proceeding with a new store.
More to come as our Upstate Internet sleuths dig up the juicy details!
Edit: It has been confirmed! This document shows a master plan for some development off Woodruff Road and Fresh Market is listed on it. Pretty cool!
