Yay: https://www.wyff4.com/article/southe...osing/26454232 Walmart is eating them alive. After they screwed over this area and moved the corporate headquarters to Jacksonville I have refused to step foot inside one. Hopefully the whole chain goes under to teach them a lesson.

Id say S Pleasantburg has more been eaten alive by the new Harris Teeter on Augusta and the Publix at McAllister. Even more business for them both. Wonder why they didn't shutter the old store at Haywood and Howell Rd. It like the S. Pleasantburg store were both former A&P Sav-a Centers. Those stores are very old.

Correct- the S. Pleasantburg store was a BI-LO beginning in the 1980s.

Yep. I thought so.
Those two old A&P stores were around since the 70's . The S. Pleasantburg store frankly looked the better of the two. The exterior and signage of the one at the old Vaughns at E. North shopping center looks faded and bad and hasn't been touched in some time. I don't know why they don't close that one and remodel the store at East North and Pleasantburg. Puzzling why they need two that close together.

I grew up in that industry and left Winn Dixie in 1993.


I would never have guessed in my wildest dreams that Ingle's would be on the march and BiLo "on the ropes"


Those old Sav-A -Center Bilo's are old as dirt, maybe close to 40 years old?


Bilo and Winn Dixie are the K-mart and Sears of the grocery business, "two drunk guys trying to hold each other up"


The new Harris Teeter on Augusta Rd is taking the area by storm. Greenville CC members are meeting their friends at the HT for a glass of wine.Who woulda thunk it?

I don't see a way out for SE Grocers, Bilo and WD.All the Bilo locations are dead as hell at prime time.


In Powdersville, close to me, they turn the lights out in the deli at 5:00pm five days a week.

I live equidistant from the Bi-Lo on S Pleasantburg and Publix at McAlister - never shop at Bi Lo after I've bought several items in the past there that were expired (shame on me for not checking)

I mainly do my grocery shopping at Lidl and buy a few items at Publix/Amazon that Lidl does not carry or the BOGO's at Publix - Lidl is amazing (much better than Aldi IMO) - Lidl is the reason I dropped my Costco membership (will be doing the same with Amazon next month)

EDIT: I also shop at Trader Joe's (but not as near as frequently as Lidl/Publix)

In a market with every kind of botique supermarket you could imagine, and some you couldn't, Bilo offers nothing special, and they aren't even particularly cheap, either.

The new Harris Teeter took the rest of the upscale market in that area that the Publix didn't already have. I imagine the opening of the Aldi just down the street that took the other end of the market was probably a bigger deal for the Bi-Lo on Pleasantburg, though. That Aldi store next to Home Depot is busy every time I've ever driven past there.
