That area is due for an upgrade. Maxwell Pointe is about 30 years old. Reminds me of Coney Island.

I guess its finally going happen. Who knew all it would take was for the developer to buy off South Side Christian. They were against every other project at that site until suddenly their offered a few acres of land for free and then they are all for it.

I think Maxwell Pointe opened in the 1970's. Winn-Dixie #1273, 2131 Woodruff Road, Greenville, South Carolina, 29607-5934, was the first supermarket on Woodruff Road.

Looking at property records, it was probably around 83 when it was built.

The Bilo at the corner of Woodruff/Butler was next, around 91-92 and while the Maxwell Pointe Winn-Dixie was never great, it started a death spiral when Bilo opened. I don't remember what year it closed, but especially after the Publix opened at Woodruff/Butler, we never stepped foot into the Winn-Dixie.

Interesting they voted down Harris Teeter but approved Sprouts Farmers Market. Perhaps a smaller footprint. But I still would like to see a Harris Teeter somewhere along the Woodruff Rd. corridor. They could close both BI-LO locations and replace one with a new Harris Teeter, and along with 2 Publix locations, Lowe's Foods, Walmart, Aldi, and soon Lidl, that would be a good selection of various segment strong grocers.

BI-LO #5273, 1818 Woodruff Road, Greenville, South Carolina 29607-5935, opened in 1991 or 1992 indeed. Publix #530, Publix at Woodruff, 1750 Woodruff Road, Greenville, South Carolina 29607-5933, opened in 1995.

Winn-Dixie expanded Winn-Dixie #1273 into a Winn-Dixie Marketplace in 1994. Winn-Dixie #1273 closed in 2000.

Winn-Dixie would have been smart to replace Winn-Dixie #1273 with a new store on the eastbound side of Woodruff Road.

Harris Teeter has problems spectating in a market with existing and announced stores rather than participating with active new store construction. The Kroger Company either needs Harris Teeter to continue opening stores, or it needs to acquire an existing supermarket participant that can open stores.

I would not mind seeing Ingle's get involved in the Woodruff Road trade area. It missed the boat 25 to 30 years ago.

I can see the rage angle from those who live directly around the area. When the neighborhoods off 14 were built, that entire parcel was cemetery. They had the expectation that it would remain cemetery because it's not often that land for a cemetery is sold for development. I worked there for a short while in between graduation from high school and when I left for college and they were talking abut putting in a mortuary on part of that corner, to offer more "full service" like its sister cemetery, Graceland on White Horse Rd.

I don't think Southside Christian won any friends from the surrounding area by changing their tune so easily when it became a benefit to them.

In the early 90's before Harris Teeter pulled out of the region, we'd hoped they'd have built one in that area. We'd go to the one at Pelham/85 a few times a month and then later the Roper Mtn Rd/385 one which was closer to our neighborhood behind Mauldin High. I think it would have done spectacularly in that area, especially since the closest other option was the original Ingles and old horrible Bilo in Mauldin.
