Yes Bi-Lo changed the exterior color scheme and signage to the new Green/White further out at Brushy Creek recently but have done nothing to the Vaughns store when it looks so bad on the outside.

I have always liked the Pelham Commons Publix.

Many BI-LO stores in Rock Hill and Charlotte have been converted to Publix and more poor performing locations have closed. I could see Publix and other competitors continue to acquire remaining BI-LO and Winn-Dixie stores.

The only reason I go in BI-LO is to purchase Chek Cola, a legacy Winn-Dixie brand. Although BI-LO is closer to my new residence, I will drive further to shop at Ingle's or Publix. And when I leave work in Greenville, I will often shop at the nice new Harris Teeter. Hopefully Harris Teeter will continue to expand in the Upstate.

If Bi-Lo completely goes out of business, it will be difficult to fill all of its empty stores.

There are 3 in Simpsonville. A Harris Teeter might do well in Five Forks or the 14 & Main locations. I have no idea what would work best in the Fairview Rd location.

I hate to see that one, though I can understand with it being pretty much directly across the street from Walmart. I like the little Italian restaurant (Vito's) in that plaza. With the empty Blockbuster and Radio Shack stores out front and now the anchor store shutting down that strip isn't doing well at all. Considering everything else on that stretch of road, I wouldn't be surprised if there's eventually a Carmax there.

A quantity of store locations could be acquired by competitors who need additional stores. Other store locations would go dark and be used for non-grocery purposes.

CK - Do you know what their total store count is now (minus Winn Dixie)? I'm guessing It has to be half of what it was when Bi-Lo was over 200 stores. Most of the locations left are in SC now with around a dozen left each across the state line in NC and Ga.

The one on 14 is still a nice store, so I think i may be one of the last ones to close in the area, if at all. The one on Fairview, I dont think anything else would do good there with Aldi and Publix nearby. In fact I cant stand to go into that BiLo any more, smell like dead fish all the time. The one in Fountain Inn has really gone down hill since apparently new manager took over. Something else could and would do well there. Ive always been a fan of BiLo, but we have all but stopped shopping there and are getting a majority of our groceries at either FoodLion or Ingles, as well as our monthly trip to Sams. Just cant bring myself to pay the prices at Publix. We experimented a couple of weekends ago and out bill was close to 50 bucks higher.

Oh come on, BiLo isn't as bad as people make it to be. Most of the time, they are cheaper than Publix, Food Lions, Ingles, and yes Harris Teeter too.

Out of curiosity today I went in the soon to close south Pleasantburg store.Wow what a worn out location.


There is not a chance that the new HT doomed this location.It an entirely different animal, the kinda place that's had to install electro magnetic wheel locks on shopping carts so they can't be stolen.
