There is a RUMOR that I haven't verified, but the supposed retail near Kohl's is Belk's moving from the mall. I usually post only facts, but I figured a if I bold the word rumor, then its ok.

Fresh Market is probably enough for Greenville. I'd have thought Earth Fare would've made their way out there by now.

If that turns out to be true that really sucks for the mall; losing an anchor tenant is never good.

If they do move, then expect for the mall to be leveled within a decade after Belk leaving. When Belk leaves a smaller mall, that mall always falls.

I completely agree, most of them are prone to be demolished over the next two decades while some such as Crabtree Town Center may survive the test of time.

In what way is Fresh Market enough? If by enough of a pseudo-health food grocerer that is way overpriced then I'd agree but this area wood really benefit from a Trader Joe's or Whole Foods. But I agree that that is wishful thinking. This city is still very dependent on cheap food and hasn't been educate enough or doesn't care enough to pay for healthy (not just overpriced, like Fresh Market) options.

We've got to try to keep this thread on topic. It has been running for a long time and we don't want the mods to .

I think what the poster meant was the market for upscale and natural foods stores in Greenville is only large enough to support one of the bigger chains.

Macy's would never open in the Greenville market, well unless a income boom happens along with a population boom. I honestly don't even want anymore retail positions in Greenville unless more white collar or high-tech manufacturing companies move in. Retail positions don't create wealth within a city, the jobs I mentioned in the previous sentence do. Greenville leaders are utilizing the cities assets properly.
