I also would be thrilled to see a Publix open in Greer. Since I never went in Food Lion after Bloom closed, I won't miss it at all.

Sad that Greenvillians didn't support this store. Cool company, and unfortunately they will be closing the Greenville location.

I'd love to see a used books store open in that space again. Downtown lost a gem when Bentley's Bookshop closed years ago. A combination bookshop, map shop, gift shop, music shop, and coffee/tea café would be especially nice.

Not gonna happen. Bookstores are going the way of the dinosaurs. Borders is gone and Barnes & Noble will be closing 30% of their stores: Barnes & Noble expects to trim 30% of its stores over next 10 years, report says - Business on NBCNews.com

That is really sad. I am all for technology but I hate what it is doing to the brick and mortar bookstores. Its kind of a social thing for many people hanging out at these large bookstores. I have always favored BooksAMillion/JoeMuggs they are just in a weak center. BAM maybe playing it smart and see what happens on Laurens Rd with all the growth at Verdae and ICAR.

I would really like to see a Publix on the scale of those in Florida. Every Publix I've seen there is bigger and better stocked than any one I've seen in the Upstate.

Marketplace needs a new wave of tenants. Petsmart, Old Time Pottery and Guitar Center do well for convenience and accessibility. Extend Marketplace out to the old Sam's Club and the pad that previously included Goody's, there is ample redevelopment to consider.

I will make a bold idea. Extend Marketplace Drive, adjacent to Books-a-Million, across the CSX railroad via bridge into Verdae.

It will be nice to see Publix add several new locations throughout the region, especially with their Charlotte region entry and Charlotte Division now in operation.

This was the first 24-hour CVS in Greenville. After the store on East North Street, a Revco at the time, moved across the street to its present location at North Pleasantburg Drive, the store stopped its 24-hour schedule.

CVS has struggled with pharmacy operation and store operation issues.

Our favorite Greek restaurant - Yia Yia's At Night - is closing March 30. They are open Thursday - Saturday nights at the Corporate Deli location on Pelham Road. It is by far the best, most authentic Greek food I've had in Greenville. The owner said that he's going to focus on the deli and catering businesses. We will be going back as many times as we can before the 30th!
