Oh yes, I have been to some nice Ingles (mainly in the mountains). So, when we first moved to Mauldin, we were utilizing all 3 major grocery stores located there. However, the specific Ingles located there is just not kept very clean and a lot of the produce we got was not very fresh. So that in addition to some unwanted interactions with other customers we have not been back. I would certainly look forward to them redoing it if it was up to the standards of some of their other locations in the NC mountains.

Two locations closed immediately (South Pleasantburg Drive, Greenville; Reidville Road, Spartanburg). Two locations operated as Food$mart and closed (Old Spartanburg Road, Greer; East Main Street, Spartanburg). One location operated as a Bi-Lo (Roper Mountain Road, Greenville) and was replaced by a Super Bi-Lo (Verdae Boulevard). Harris Teeter had eyed two more locations that they held out on (Parkway at South Batesville Road, Greer - now Publix at Thornblade; State Park Road at Mountain Creek Church Road, Greenville - faced Pebble Creek opposition).

Are you an architect? Your knowledge of all these retail places is insanely detailed.

identical in what way? Floor plan? Architectural finishes? or both?

In either case, the current Ingles in Mauldin is off our list until a major overhaul.

Mauldin store looks very late 80's early 90's to me. Peach and Green colors , ceramic tile floors, neon.

Right, that's why I was asking. I was wondering if the person posting the info was just going by standard floor plan / store "offerings" (ie deli, pharmacy, large wine section, etc.) or actually talking about the store finishings and last time it was updated. The Mauldin store looks like it hasn't been touched in decades.

The present Mauldin store 42 opened no earlier than late 1993 or early 1994. The stores identical to it opened before or after in the same time. These stores are identical by the store design and floor plan.

If you think that store is bad, stop by the store out near Donaldson (7616 Augusta Road Piedmont, SC 29673). The "Moonville" store looks like it was built in the early/mid 70s and left untouched since then. The inside still has the almond green / harvest gold motif of that era. I would have thought the new Food Lion down the road would spur them to remodel the store but it remains unchanged, a throwback to the 70s.

Yes I would like to see Harris Teeter return to Upstate SC. Their stores in NC are very nice. Now that Kroger is operating Harris Teeter, maybe they will consider expanding in this area again. Possibly with a BI-LO buyout. As I don't see a merger with a declining Winn Dixie as a long term path to profitability for BI-LO.

BiLo has already been bought out by Winn Dixie. They have already changed most of the private label items to WD brands. I don't see the feasibility of WD reselling BiLo to Kroger so that it could be rebranded to HT. HT is much more upscale than BiLo and targets more of the same customer as Publix, in my opinion. When HT closed in Greenville before, most of the employees from HT went to work for Publix in the stores near me.
