Lewis Plaza, constructed and opened in 1948 and located on Augusta Street, is considered to be the first shopping center in Greenville, South Carolina.

Former tenants include Belk Simpson and Earth Fare, both located at 6 South Lewis Plaza, Greenville South Carolina 29605-2944; Bi-Lo #11, located at 1800 Augusta Street, Greenville, South Carolina 29605-2928; and Plaza Cinema, located at 21 Aberdeen Drive, Greenville, South Carolina 29605-2955.

In 2012, Lewis Plaza was sold to AVTEX Commercial Properties into the partnership Lewis Plaza Partners LLC. Rumors have circulated Lewis Plaza will be redeveloped to include Publix and Chick-fil-A.

Aerial: Lewis Plaza Site Plan

A community meeting in regards to the redevelopment of Lewis Plaza will be held Monday, 15 December 2015 at 1800 hours (6 pm) at Augusta Road Baptist Church, 1823 Augusta Street, Greenville, South Carolina 29605-2927.

I always thought it was a little too close for Publix to have another store at Lewis when they already have stores on McBee and at McAllister. Both of those stores pull customers from the Augusta Rd area. They just refreshed the McAllister Publix and its exterior. Great news about HT. Is Chick-Fil-A still in the plans for Lewis Plaza?

This is huge news and will greatly increase the quality of life for the Augusta Road residents. Now, the city of Greenville needs to consider increased traffic on an already congested road - at a minimum, Augusta needs 5 lanes, with a middle turning lane.

I'm excited for this though the store will be too far to visit regularly. I know some open land in Mauldin! lol

It's already nearly landlocked. I hate to think what would have to happen for 5 lanes to fit that road.

Here are some estimated distances from the former Bi-Lo #11, 1800 Augusta Street, Greenville, South Carolina 29605-2928 to the nearest Publix stores:
  • Publix #1148, McBee Station, 400 East McBee Avenue Suite 100, Greenville, South Carolina 29601-2940; 1.9 miles
  • Publix #602, McAlister Square, 235 South Pleasantburg Drive, Greenville, South Carolina 29607-2521; 2.5 miles

Both stores obviously draw from the Augusta Street/Augusta Road area because there is no supermarket present along the corridor. I doubt either store, which serve its immediate trade area, will lose much business when Harris Teeter opens.

I wonder if Publix still has interest in a store in the area with a different location in mind.

This is an important announcement on two fronts. First, the Augusta Road area is finally getting a supermarket after a 17 year void created by Bi-Lo. I do not know if another supermarket may jump aboard to compete against Harris Teeter. Second, Kroger and Harris Teeter are not only returning to Greenville, it is making moves throughout the upstate South Carolina market. I can see more new store locations announced, or an existing chain purchased.

Not going to happen - in the past Augusta Road was also "Business 25". The SC DOT proposed a widening which would have involved cutting down some trees. Residents promptly claimed the trees as protected with yellow ribbons. I think that's when the street was turned over to the city/county and "Business 25" was removed.

Thanks for that bit of history - I'm not sure what solution (if any) will increase the flow of traffic on Augusta (without adding a 5th turning lane) - turning barricades (like on Woodruff)? This new Harris Teeter will definitely increase congestion (lunchtime traffic on Augusta is already terrible).
