They closed 80 locations this year and over 90 last year. Time to reinvent or shut them all down.

That's going to be an unusual amount of vacancies for a Walmart-based shopping center: Applebee's, Toys R Us (huge space to fill, maybe create smaller stores within the building?), Arby's (empty how long now?). Applebee's should be the easiest to replace.

I always hate when these types of closings happen. People losing jobs is never fun. That being said, Applebee's isn't exactly quality dining. There are plenty of other places in Greenville that you can get a good meal for two people for $20. I would assume the owner of Mi Cabana is plotting right now a way to open his 85th Greenville location in that space!

That area really is going through some issues. Just thinking a little outside the box, but I wonder if the Convention center folks would be interested in the Toys R Us space as an addition to the "convention center campus."

I think that building should be demolished completely and build it a little bit taller. They need to redo the whole Walmart shopping center.

The former Arby's building is becoming a chicken wing joint.

Itís a start. I hope the firm actually delivers the truth and not what they think management wants to hear.

I noticed that a pet store (not one I've heard of) is coming soon in the corner space to the right of Fresh Market.

Glad something is going in there. That center has been slow to develop. Similar to the Greenville Grande shops.
