In Powdersville, close to me, they turn the lights out in the deli at 5:00pm five days a week.
I'm honestly shocked that the Powdersville store wasn't on the list. The Walmart and new Ingles in Powdersville are constantly busy. That old Bi-Lo is never busy, and with good reason. The last time I went in there the entire store reeked of old grease that seemed to emanate from the deli - I would guess from frying chicken in a fryer with old grease. On top of the smell, they were out of stock on several of the common items I needed to make the meal I was planning for supper. I had to leave and go to another store.

If Bi-Lo closed that store, it would make a logical location for a Publix. I've heard Publix has recently ruled out Powdersville for a store based on some market survey they conducted. Based on the construction of new homes in a 5 mile radius, it would be smart to go ahead and get a store established now.

Its not all bad news for them. Some of the stores I have been in are quite busy. They have to continue to invest in refreshing and remodeling their remaining stores. Brushy Creek and the Greenwood store are much nicer.

I like some of the SE Grocers private label products like Chek Soft Drinks and Prestige Ice Cream (old Winn Dixie legacy brands). Also their new Zany Zinger dipping sauce taste like Zaxbys sauce and they have one comparable to Chick-Fil-A sauce as well.

That Aldi store next to Home Depot is busy every time I've ever driven past there.
That newer Aldi has good prices and beautiful produce.

Wow, the end of an era. I can't remember a time when the Bi-Lo on S. Pleasantburg wasn't there. But, Bi-Lo stopped living up to its name (unless you caught a sale). A very nice Food Lion moved into where I think the Harris Teeter is now, but it didn't last long at all. Then, Aldi's showed up. Now, there's the Harris Teeter and, I guess, that's all she wrote. RIP Bi-Lo. The people who worked at the pharmacy there were awesome! I hope they land on their feet very well somewhere else.

Both BI-LO #5016, Kmart Plaza, 6 Kmart Plaza, Greenville, South Carolina 29605-4442; and BI-LO #5563, 1315 South Pleasantburg Drive, Greenville, South Carolina 29605-1330, have seen sales plummet since the opening of Harris Teeter #420, Lewis Plaza, 1720 Augusta Street, Greenville, South Carolina 29605-2926. BI-LO #5563 has higher rent and requires more maintenance being an older location.

I agree ​BI-LO #5568, Powdersville Plaza, 3518 Highway 153, Greenville, South Carolina 29611-7553, would be an excellent acquisition target for Publix. A better supermarket can feast on "going home" traffic on Highway 153 and Anderson Road.

Where in Powdersville has Publix been mentioned to locate?

I wish the TR one would close. You have to look at dates on everything. Most is past sales date. Would love for Publix to move there, or Hariis Teeter.

That's why I am puzzled why they don't close the old location at Vaughns at East North. Its extremely old and identical to the S Pleasantburg store. They actually remodeled the exterior of pleasantburg years back and haven't touched Vaughns (Howell Rd) with even a can of paint. Even the Bi-Lo signs are extremely faded on that building. Their most worn looking store in Greenville.

Both BI-LO #5092, Vaughn's at East North, 3715 East North Street, Greenville, South Carolina 29615-2302, and BI-LO #5195, North Hills, 2435 East North Street, Greenville, South Carolina 29615-1400, are not performing well and are in bad shape. Publix #874, Pelham Commons, 215 Pelham Road, Greenville, South Carolina 29615-2546, is a busy store.

BI-LO #5653, Gateway Village, 148 Walnut Lane, Travelers Rest, South Carolina 29690-1600, would benefit from a tear down and rebuild if acquired by Publix.

Publix has acquired BI-LO store locations over time. Would Harris Teeter have interest in some locations?
