When is Ingles going to get any of these projects done? We have been discussing them on this board for several years or more now. I am starting to have little faith in them with these projects. Seems like the interest in the Greenville market is just not there for them regarding new store development.

Ingle's Markets expanded the distribution center in Black Mountain, North Carolina two years ago. New store construction was halted for several years. Having larger facilities to support additional stores, the chain is ready to grow.

The 204th store, Ingle's Markets #148, 2130 East Main Street, Lincolnton, NC 28092-3921, is opening this summer. //www.city-data.com/forum/charl...me-ingles.html is covering the store.

Ingle's Markets does not own sites in eastern or southeastern Greenville County where growth has been for the past three decades. Missing out on markets like Pelham Road, Woodruff Road, Five Forks and Old Spartanburg Road has left Bi-Lo being dominant followed by Publix.

Is Ingle's Markets turning a corner? It is opening perhaps the first of several new stores. It has acquired sites for additional stores. It is improving existing stores that can be improved without replacing them. I think it is turning a corner slowly.

I would like to see a supermarket such as Ingles innovate instead of looking for ways to add space or build giant new stores. If Ingles should offer "click and collect", where a shopper would order online, then drive up and have their groceries put into their cars.

This would eliminate the need for so much square footage. The "store" would be more like a warehouse. It would be less of a chore for consumers, less time wasted plus easier for families. Consumers would spend less also, with less impulse buying. Retailers would make up for that loss in lower operating costs.

I heard that Walmart is trying such a concept in Arkansas. Some retailers such as Giant Food and Stop & Shop offer a similar service at their regular stores.

Harris Teeter and Lowes Foods both offered this service for a small fee when we lived in the Raleigh area - never knew anyone that used it, though.

Ingle's Markets has owned two sites totaling 4.5 estimated acres at 6605 State Park Road, Travelers Rest, SC 29690-1696 since 12 December 1977. Store #40 was open approximately from 1978 to 2002.

The former Emb Tex Corporation site, 150 South End Circle, Travelers Rest, SC 29690-1652, having 19.533 estimated acres, is presently owned by Liquid Combustion Technology since 6 July 2009. It was previously owned by Travelers Rest BJB LLC on 5 April 2007. This site was once considered for Travelers Rest Crossing and has been rumored as a new Ingle's.

Not sure why people would not use it there. Other retailers that offer it have had good success. Some folks may rather pick their own veggies, fruit and meat. That's about 20% of your weekly shopping and could be done elsewhere...farmers market for instance.

I would gladly pay for the service if it would save me an hour or more shopping each week.

I think Ingle's has struggled in Greenville because they lack enough locations in eastern Greenville County. Woorduff Road at East Butler Road, Woodruff Road in the Five Forks area, Pelham Road near I-85 and Brushy Creek Road at Old Spartanburg Road are among several prominent areas Ingle's has not tapped.
I am not a fan of ingles and am kinda confuse as to why they are so popular, then I realized, in this part of the country, they have cornered the small town market... to bad, I miss publix, and whole foods... I h

I will give Ingle's credit for locating in small towns Bi-Lo and Publix ignore. They dominate very well outside Greenville, northeast Georgia and western North Carolina.

Yes but not really in the city. Kroger and Food City dominate directly in the city and Ingles has a few stores on the outskirts as well as Publix now. Publix is about to open a downtown store near the UT campus around August.
