Thrilled to see that we will be getting a Lidl. I have to admit that this really made my day.

Lidl is purchasing sites to build its stores on. At the moment, I do not see Lidl owning any sites in the City of Greenwood and Greenwood County.

We have a thriving Aldi and a newly opened Save-a-lot. It will be interesting to see how Lidl performs in this market.

Greenwood is set on limited assortment/discount grocers with Aldi, Save-A-Lot, and eventually Lidl.

I think Piggly Wiggly Carolina Company transformed store 82, 1160 Main Street South, Greenwood, South Carolina 29646-3827, into Price Wise Foods, its limited assortment/discount format. The dissolution of Piggly Wiggly Carolina Company may have shifted that store back to Piggly Wiggly with another independent owner/operator.

That is indeed a Price Wise food store. I didn't think to mention it with Aldi and Save-a-lot since I have never been in it.

The dissolution of Piggly Wiggly Carolina Company had me thinking it reverted back to Piggly Wiggly. It is one of the three Piggly Wiggly stores operating as supermarkets. If it is still Price Wise Foods, it is time to make the correction:

Supermarket
Piggly Wiggly (2 stores)

Limited Assortment/discount
Price Wise Foods (1 store)

Lidl's Greenwood store will be in the ZIP code 29649. This narrows down the location to Bypass 72 Northwest, Montague Avenue, or Highway 72/221 East.

From the site plan Lidl looks like it will be next to the Crosscreek Connector across 72 from the mall and the new Chick-Fil-A.
I wouldn't expect to see these stores until late 2017 or 2018. I don't even think they have their distribution center going yet or other infrastructure like distributors/manufactures for their products. Could be a while yet.
