There's something very weird going on with Lowes Foods. They ran out of Shelby where the only competition was Ingles, a couple of Food Lions & an independent.

I would agree. In the span of three years, Lowe's Foods traded just about all of its Charlotte market stores to Harris Teeter, closed the stores it acquired from Harris Teeter, and will have left Cleveland and Gaston counties. Now, it plans to enter the Greenville, South Carolina market. ("Lowes Foods coming to Greenville.")

I wonder if Lowe's Foods departure from Gaston County could make way for the arrival of additional Publix stores.

Honestly, I think that whoever is running Lowes Foods is nuts.

Lowe's Foods is having to find ways to step up against increased competition from larger and better competitors in Kroger/Haris Teeter and Publix.

Their biggest competition in Gastonia is Wal-Mart. That won't change in Greenville. They'll have more competition in Greenville. It just seems crazy to me.

I liked Lowes better when their stores were the smaller neighborhood, less upscale, format than the large "lifestyle" format they adopted to go head to head with Harris Teeter. Used to be one of these in Cornelius. I hated to see it go.

Lowes Foods is popular in Gastonia. There is one Harris Teeter going in, in south Gastonia. People protested zoning approval for the Teeter. Now they're going to Greenville, SC. I think that whoever is making their decisions is nuts.

Lowe's tried to compete with Harris Teeter south of Charlotte. They were new, modern stores. Always clean and well-stocked. But you could throw a rock and not hit anyone in there in the middle of the day.
I don't know what it was, but they just couldn't build any market share here.

Yeah Lowes going to Greenville does seem odd. If they go down, at least they aren't giving up without a fight though, they are definitely investing in a lot of their stores with the large-scale remodels they've been doing, of which I believe the one in Harrisburg is getting one.
