I am surprised these retailers, restaurants, and entertainment options are not between Taylors and Greer yet.

I also moved here recently from FL, so I know what you are saying about wanting to be close to things. There was definitely a convenience factor there that isn't as obvious here, despite actually having most of the same things.
It would really be nice if that would happen. Like you mentioned, you have to go all the way to Easley which I know is a PIA. It's just nice to know, when you come home from work, you can go 5 minutes down the road and get all of your shopping done It's also a plus to know there are restaurants and entertainment near. I am all for the concept of town centers. Being you lived in FL, you know what I am talking about

Not sure what you're asking, sorry. It's an official list from the Office of Management and Budget. They list the top 100 MSA's, ours is Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson. If you look at the link and each city, to the third column it lists all of the cities/suburbs that make up an MSA. We are 45th in the nation, much larger than many people realize.

Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson is not a metropolitan statistical area, but it is listed as a combined statistical area. Combined, metropolitan, and micropolitan statistical areas do not mean much.

Some of those retailers have had 15 years to move forward.

G-S-A is a metro statistical area. There are 10 counties that make up the combined statistical area. The two are different.

You're wrong. Greenville is smaller than all of those, except Richmond, and that's just barely. (Greenville is 63 and Richmond is 64)

If there were a Wegman's and/or a Sprouts here, I'd stop going to our Whole Foods. When I travel around, I like to check out the local Whole Foods and we have the worst one that I have ever been to. Less selection, highest pricing (compared to local competition), lower quality...

The Office of Management and Budget, which defines statistical areas, disagrees with you:
  • Greenville-Anderson-Mauldin, South Carolina Metropolitan Statistical Area (Greenville, Anderson, Pickens, and Laurens counties)
  • Spartanburg, South Carolina Metropolitan Statistical Area (Spartanburg and Union counties)
  • Greenwood, South Carolina Micropolitan Statistical Area (Greenwood and Abbeville counties)
  • Seneca, South Carolina Micropolitan Statistical Area (Oconee County)
  • Gaffney, South Carolina Micropolitan Statistical Area (Cherokee County)
