Since then, Walmart in Taylors expanded into a supercenter, Target entered the area, and Winn Dixie closed.



The Mauldin Kmart remains quite busy, especially when Walmart and Target are not nearby.
We changed our target city because the Kmart in Spartanburg was closed in 2003.

Mauldin needs this store!

I wouldn't be surprised to find out the Easley Kmart is closing, with Kohls and Walmart opening new stores so close by. They closed their Sears appliance store across the street from Kmart just a couple years ago

I think Sears has/had an appliance store, which it calls Hometown Stores, in Greenwood's Crosscreek/Greenwood Mall.

It appears the Wendys on The Parkway at Pelham and 85 has closed. Or at least the sign has been covered up and they were not open today.

Maybe Five Guys was hurting their business?

Not specific to Greenville but could mean closings in the future; Yum Brands announced plans to sell A&W and Long John Silver.

The K Mart Closing on Wade Hampton has been needed for so long and I predict we will see this corridor get a huge retail upgrade and revamping over the next five years.

That K Mart was preventing anything from happening in that location which has really good traffic numbers and is a under served market. I think you will see a domino effect of the Kmart and Winn Dixie center getting a couple of national big box chains and then you will see the old Bijou site get developed and lastly the Save A Lot store will be replaced along with the old steak house..Five to Six years and you will not recognize that area....just my prediction.

Wendy's still has the location listed on its website. Maybe the location is closed for remodeling, or it has closed for good.

Access to this Wendy's has been bad at times.

Five Guys does not compete directly with Wendy's. That is more of McDonald's, Jack in the Box, Hardee's, and Burger King.

A&W and Long John Silver's have lacked a presence in the area for years. Selling them off to someone who can help market and expand the brand better may have been Yum Brands' last option. Yum Brands will be left with Pizza Hut/Wingstreet (dine-in), Taco Bell, and KFC.

Rite Aid/Sav-A-Lot is located up the street. I think you're referring to Ingle's Sav-Mor discount chain, which is doing well successfully.

While this seems true...the Haywood Rd. Wendy's did move. Maybe this one is moving for better access. It's really hard to get in and out of this one.
