If Kroger chooses to expand into Pickens County and open its Marketplace hypermarket stores through its own banner, Harris Teeter or through an acquired competitor, it would likely have Starbucks Coffee, bank, fuel center, pharmacy with drive through, groceries, fresh foods, apparel, Fred Meyer Jewelers, indoor living products, etc.

If Kroger were to locate at Easley Village Shopping Center, both former Kmart #3645 and Bi-Lo #5199 would have to be demolished. As Hamrick's will open a new store in the former Kmart #3645's space, the idea is unrealistic.

There was a time when many restaurants and stores offered free candy for the kids. And complimentary mints for the adults. It would be nice to see that more often again.

And I don't think Mr. ATL is trolling. He just has many enthusiastic ideas regarding retail and restaurants, and possible redevelopment and revitalization opportunities. And the mods created his own special thread to share his thoughts and suggestions. So I say just keep those great ideas coming! Sounds like a Cheesecake Factory may finally be on the way, and maybe one day we will eventually get a Popeyes.

It remains to be seen how Kroger plans to infill the western Carolinas. But they definitely seem to have Harris Teeter in mind, but is yet to be determined if the Kroger flagship banner may appear. But I speculate they are seriously evaluating the Upstate SC market for future expansion, and it may come at the expense of Bi-Lo.

But he is a troll; did you not see his response for my comment? I literally called him a troll and rather than responding, he says:

LOL, it's entertaining though. I believe he started off with good intentions, now just makes a list (all the list bare resemblance, copy and paste?) of stores that truly don't make sense such as building a three story mall in Cowpens or however it's spelled. I have to say it's trolling.

I've reviewed a few of ATL Fan's post from the past as well as their responses and I'm issuing an apology to him. I don't believe you're a troll, I apologize. Keep up the good work with your posting! You really have great ideas for the area, and I can tell you've done your studying on stores that should be located to this or that city; in other words, you truly love South Carolina and someone like me shouldn't call you a troll for that.

I find the article "Kroger: Harris Teeter Could Impact Kroger Expansion Plans" a good read. Kroger had planned to enter a new market in 2012. The acquisition of Harris Teeter has triggered focused in the southeastern and mid-Atlantic United States.
