I think Ingle's Markets has been in stagnation for over three years after the passing of its founder Robert Pierce "Bob" Ingle in March 2011 and the expansion of its distribution center in Black Mountain, North Carolina in 2012. The distribution center is large enough to support additional stores. As Kroger, Publix and Walmart add stores to increase their market share, so should Ingle's.

Ingle's owns several sites in Greenville County and elsewhere throughout the upstate South Carolina regional market for additional and relocating stores. It is concentrating on improving existing locations with updates and pharmacy additions instead of undergoing expenses to replace them with newer stores.

Stagnation is a good word for it.

Bob Ingle had pulled a construction permit for the Lincoln County store just before he died. The store was built this year. It makes sense to upgrade stores but under the current circumstances they should have a schedule to allow construction of a new store in the Upstate & a new store in NC each year, at a minimum, as well.

Recently, Bi-Lo and Ingles stores that used to be open 24 hours are no longer. We need at least 1 24-hour supermarket within a reasonable driving distance from the Greer/Duncan area. I've been asked "why not Walmart?", but I tend to buy a month's worth of food at a time, so it wouldn't be practical considering there are only 2 or 3 registers open late at night. I used to be able to go to the Bi-Lo on Pelham Rd after work at midnight but now they close at 11pm. The Ingles in Duncan on E Main St gave up their 24 hour service at least a year ago. The one on Highway 29 near Westgate Mall started closing at midnight just a couple months ago.

Default Twenty-four Hour Stores in the Greenville, South Carolina Area

Twenty-four hour stores has their advantages and disadvantages. The advantages are being convenient for customers who work at odd times during the day and can only shop at night, and for workers who need work and are willing to work third shift. The disadvantages is not having enough labor on hand for processing and stocking groceries, attraction for criminal activity, and not enough sales to warrant staying open all night.

At the present, no Bi-Lo or Ingle's stores in Greenville County are open 24 hours. Publix does not operate any 24-hour stores chain wide.

I thought it was too - I've been at the Verdae Bi-Lo late at night years ago - thanks CK for the update

I'm wondering if they are going to open one closer to downtown.

I would not be surprised to see Walmart open a store in Greenville's downtown. A Neighborhood Market store would provide the necessities of food and pharmacy. The trade area is distant enough from other stores to consider a Supercenter store. A Supercenter store would have to be vertically expansive.
