There are already a lot of fast food and retail chains that have a lot of locations around Greenville. I hope that whatever national retailer is locating downtown will be something unique and different that does not currently exist in the Greenville market. Becomes very boring seeing the same (cookie cutter development) stores everywhere!

I think we can all agree with that sentiment! But the original story did say that the retailer would be something new to Greenville.

Personally, I think the last thing downtown needs is another restaurant. It reminds me of Seattle/Tacoma in that it seems that every other store is a restaurant. Don't get me wrong, I love downtown, it is beautiful, but the shopping is mediocre, so I hope the new biz is a good one!

Sistajane, I'm confused by your post. Above you say downtown shopping is limited, but below is your quote from the Main Street thread where you say downtown is nothing BUT shops:

"Great honor, but compared to other cities a I think we could do much better. Basically, its just a bunch of shops! At least the curfew is helping control the riots on the weekends."

Very confused. Have you been to downtown Greenville? Do you really live here? Just curious.

Shopping IS limited downtown. Where would someone go to buy a tv or a book? If you want outdoor gear or cute trinkets, sure there are plenty of shops.

I doubt it's Borders seeing how they're technically already located in Greenville at Haywood Mall and they aren't doing well financially right now.
