They have a lot of crap but fun to look through. They are kind of like how Big Lots used to be before they started cleaning up their act.
Nothing on this end sadly.

Outside of Greenville County, Ingle's is dominant. Check out Anderson, Cherokee, Oconee, Pickens, and Spartanburg counties.

You mentioned that there are several grocery stores around Ingles...I think Ingles needs to do something different to bring in customers. Publix has the best customer service and experience. Maybe Ingles could transfrom itself into something like a Wegmans.
West Georgia Road remains a great corridor for a Bi-Lo, Ingle's, or Publix. Food Lion is already there, and it has its limitations. Either chains can benefit from an additional location here.

Years ago Ingles had a location at W. Georgia Rd and 385. Of course, that was before anything was on W Georgia Rd and I remember the few times we stopped in, it was never crowded.

I remember this location. Ingle's opened in the late 1970s on the eastern side of I-385 with a drugstore, likely Rite Aid. It relocated to Fairview Station in the late 1980s when Kmart opened a Simpsonville location. (Kmart closed in 2004, and its space is now Kohl's.) The former Ingle's was demolished four years ago.

Ingle's was once the only supermarket along the Fairview Road corridor west of I-385. Three competitors have joined the field in the late 1990s/early 2000s: Bi-Lo, Publix, and Walmart.

I disagree Bilo has lead the marketshare in the upstate and the entire state for that matter for a long time. Wal-mart is fast catching up.

Actually on second thought Wal-mart has probably pulled ahead of everyone. Someone publishes those numbers. I think it is called "Shelby Report"

I said nothing about marketshare. Clarifying myself, Ingle's has more locations than Bi-Lo outside Greenville County. Ingle's has no locations in Greenwood or Laurens Counties.

Until its store closures recently, Food Lion had more locations than Bi-Lo. If you are looking at marketshare by the amount of locations, Bi-Lo is followed by Publix, Piggly Wiggly, and Ingle's. Walmart is not included because it does not fit under the traditional supermarket classification.
