Incorrect the aforementioned website is indeed. MCBH LSC LLC is listed as the owner of Lynncroft.

Lowe's Foods likely never had any traction in Greenville because it was an expansion market for them...but only one store. Greenville was filled with Food Lions.

In Wilmington and some along the Coast, Lowe's Foods has more traction, because about 15 years ago, it acquired a number of former Hannaford Stores when they had to sell off. Wilmington has at least 3 Lowe's Foods now.

Not surprising Lowe's Foods would abandon the market with Publix set to come in. If Publix fills that LF spot, then you have to wonder what is going in at the new shopping center at Evans/Firetower?

Lowe's Foods has announced expansion into Greenville and Charleston counties in South Carolina:It will be going up against Bi-Lo, Harris Teeter, Ingle's, Publix, and Walmart in those markets.

Lowe's Foods acquired several Hannaford stores with pharmacies. The pharmacy space in these stores were leased to the Medicine Shoppe.

It'd be hard enough to fill two 50K sq ft stores, so I don't see this development happening (as planned) without one of them being a grocery.

Walmart Neighborhood Market and Harris Teeter stores are already in the trade area. If a new grocer is moving into Greenville, would it be wise to open a new store in the Firetower Evans Development, or would it take over Lowe's Foods #204, make modifications to the store, and reopen quickly?

I don't see Publix opening just 1 store. Harris Teeter has 3 of them and I heard at one point they wanted a 4th.

Take over the Lowe's store...its on G-ville BLVD...that's the better spot overall. I agree that they will look to open multiple stores in a market like Greenville. But where on the East side of town would they go if FL isnt abandoning their locales. I still think there is a market on the west side of town (Hospital area/264) for either HT, Publix or both...

On another note, the Gateway project at ECU has transformed College Hill into a much more pedestrian friendly area, where the kids are all over the place. Unfortunately, the Boundary project downtown still looks a long way from being completed. The kids may be in there, but it is basically still a construction site...and looks to be that way for at least another month. Shame with upcoming football season that the commercial sites aren't ready.
