Some locations might be good for them though, even if they tear it down to the studs. A good one would be the Bilo on Pelham. I think they would complement Walmart and Earth Fare pretty well.

True. HT seems to favor locations in higher income areas. They may be interested in that Woodruff Rd slot too if it's a complete re-do even though that area is saturated with grocers.

I read in the Greenville News article BI-LO's 3 year plan is to do "stunning" remodels in a significant portion of their remaining footprint.

ScGuy89, I'm sure you are being metaphorical about the "down to the studs" comment.The Winn Dixie in Mauldin that was not that old, was torn down so publix could build another square concrete box of about the same size in the same spot.I clearly don't understand the economics of this real estate.Isn't one square box pretty much the same as another, obviously not.

I know, I was referring to the entire Upstate. I wasn't saying they should take over Bilo's either. HT is one of my favorites and a clear step, or two, or three, above Bilo.

I don't think the Woodruff Road Bi-Lo location is big enough for an HT, unless they take over some of the adjacent real estate.

I think these "stunning" remodels would be closed stores or stores divested to competitors.

I have a feeling many of these locations will just sit empty and dark for some time. The closed Easley BI-LO is still empty after all this time. Some of them have become thrift stores.

Drove by again tonight and saw one of those yellow alcohol license application posted on the door. The applicant was Roma Invictus LLC. I think there's a way to look up llc's and see what the new restaurants actual name is, but i don't know how to do it. One would assume by the name it's going to be another Italian restaurant.

I took a long time to get the one filled in Taylors. The Habitat for Humanity recently opened there. Hopefully, someone will come along that is useful

The Easley Bi Lo has been vacant for a while
