yeah the Goodwill news is not the most exciting... imagine if that Kmart is one of 100s that are going to be closing soon that plaza will be turning into a wasteland

I was just wondering if they would consider moving from the "old" part of Easley to the "new" side of Easley where Powdersville growth is about to explode. Eventually 123 from Easley to Greenville will be developed. I imagine a real mall/lifestyle center to be built between them in the next 15-20 years, especially if Greenville's downtown keeps revitalizing and moving West. The current JC Penny's store is not up to par and that whole shopping center is looking rough. The only nice store in it is the Belk's and I guess Hobby Lobby (because that is the quality of all of their stores).

The Goodwill at it's present location, is pretty old looking inside and I believe they are going to make it bigger and better near Walmart, with a new Job Connection to boot...

By the way, I HATE this new light. When i go to work its still on a timer(as opposed to changing as cars pull up), so I have to wait when there is absolutely NO traffic coming either way, EVERY morning. It is driving me nuts!

I've found that MOST lights in this whole area are apparently on timers as opposed to having traffic sensors (this IS the 21st century, isn't it??). One of my biggest traffic peeves. It infuriates me to see a light go thru a needless turn signal when there's no one in turn lanes on either side. We could reduce pollution and fuel consumption with smarter traffic grids and traffic lights that respond to traffic flow vs arbitrary timing. <rant over - sorry for hijacking!>

Sounds like the one from Pope Field Rd to Highway 8 in Easley. Drives me crazy too.

That light would be more effective if it were just gone.

Default red light

I think the light will change when the new school gets everyone in there and up and running all grades. I still see the police out there on Sun. morning due to the church traffic so I am assuming it is not completely functional yet.

I can confirm that the JCPenneys will remain at is current location. I know the manager and my mother works there and there have been no talk of it moving.

I walked in that JCPenny once. Then walked right out the men's section is horribly small. I know now to visit the Haywood mall location.
