Publix? Yawn. I’d rather see a Harris Teeter.

Having recently relocated to Inman, SC I am disappointed there is no Publix nearby. Only Duncan and Hillcrest appear to be the closest options. Other choices are BI-LO and Ingle's, and a Food Lion in Lyman. They need a Publix near Lyman or Inman.

I hope Harris Teeter continues to expand in the Upstate. There Lewis Plaza store is very nice and I have found good pricing on sale items, even the bakery. Very good bakery there. But I still prefer Publix for supermarket fried chicken, and they now have a hot and spicy version which satisfies my Bojangle's or Popeyes craving at a lower cost. Publix chicken is very good.

Harris Teeter needs to execute intelligence in opening a quantity of stores.

Lyman and Inman lack quality supermarkets with BI-LO and Food Lion present. I would like to see Ingle's and Publix open stores in Inman and/or Lyman. (Ingle's has been in Lyman before.)

I'm still hopeful Wegmans will find its way here one day!

The Food Lion site is too new and there’s no real incentive, financially, to entertain demolition. Food Lion still ongoing concern, still paying the lease. That being said, I agree with you. It’s Probably not large enough for the pent up demand in Greer for Publix SEG grocers will need cash soon.

Agreed, with the caveat that I could see the smaller prototype as a 2nd store DT Greenville.

True if you only consider wade hampton or want to turn left onto buncombe from the back road.

The Five Forks store is a great example as to why this is a bad idea. In the words of yogi Berra nobody goes there anymore it’s too crowded. Lol but I certainly understand the sentiment. Maybe as a 2nd store serving the Greer Lyman Duncan area.
