Bojangles' opened its newest Greer store Monday on Highway 101, directly across from BMW. A Spinx will be built this winter next door with properties bordering the Bass Pro Shops development scheduled to open in 2016.

 

Bass Pro Shops closed on its purchase of 75 acres of land Thursday on the border of Greer in Spartanburg County at the intersection of I-85 and Highway 101.

The price was not disclosed between Bass Pro Shops and Milliken Enterprises. The imminent partnership was announced in April.

The uniqueness of the transaction is that Bass Pro Shops, the company, is the developer of the planned 120,000-square-foot Mega Outdoor Store and the mixed-use development. Bass Pro announced a 2016 opening that includes retail stores, hotels, restaurants, bowling alley and possibly a movie theater.

The development will be directly across from BMW Manufacturing in Greer.

The development of that area began to take shape last Monday when Bojangles’ opened its Highway 101 store with a BMW-themed décor. A road was carved to lead into Bojangles, and Spinx is scheduled to begin construction of its gas/convenience store soon next to the restaurant.

Opposite Bass Pro Shops, on Highway 101, is a Quik Trip that will be one of its largest stores in its inventory in acreage to provide drivers to park their rigs on site while stocking up with goods.

Spartanburg County officials have made clear its intent not to have Greer annex the property. Police, fire, rescue, water and sewer services will be provided by Spartanburg County to preclude Greer from annexing the property. County officials have made an effort to keep Greer officials uninvited to town hall meetings on past briefings on the Bass Pro Shops development

CPW officials said on Monday it is moving ahead with expanding its infrastructure to the Quik Trip on Highway 101 but will stop short of going underneath the highway.
