I believe you may still see Safeway stores in Northern Virginia and Maryland, but they no longer seem to have such a strong presence due to competition from longtime rival Giant Landover and newer arrival of Harris Teeter. I think Safeway may now be stronger on the West coast in places such as California. Parent company Albertson's has mostly abandoned Florida where Publix now dominates.

Good news the Willy Taco is now open at the old Feed and Seed. I know this site has been a concern for a good while and nice to see something new down there.

I have heard from multiple sources that the Gville Trader Joe's is barely hitting corporate sales goals. I seriously doubt that they would ever consider diluting the market by adding a second store locally.

First you must consider does the Berea trade area have a need or demand for another supermarket participant? Then, most likely, it would be a chain already firmly established within the local market area, rather than a new participant. Which would primarily include Bi-Lo, Publix, Ingle's, or Walmart. And Bi-Lo is already closing underperforming stores in that area, and the demographics may not be the ideal fit for Publix. As for Ingle's, isn't there already a location on White Horse Rd. nearby? And with the Walmart Supercenter on White Horse, is there a nearby need for a Walmart Neighborhood Market? And is there an Aldi in the area? So after examining these current statistics, I am not sure there is a need for another supermarket in Berea, however nice the idea may sound. And although Lowe's Foods and Harris Teeter are entering the Upstate market, I do not necessarily see Berea as one of their target areas. And while Food Lion may seem a good fit for Berea, they have unfortunately been unsuccessful in the Upstate region.

But do not be discouraged. Keep up the creative ideas. We finally got the Cheesecake Factory and the Willy Taco has opened at the old Feed and Seed. And Popeyes is on the way. So keep on planning the good ideas.

Sprouts Farmers Market, a specialty organic grocer, has stores in Georgia and is expanding into North Carolina. It could expand into South Carolina to compete against Earth Fare and Whole Foods Markets.

I would like to see a specialty organic/gourmet grocery store in northwestern Greenville County. The Berea community may not be the best trade area. Travelers Rest or Cherrydale could be better options.
