Evidently Greer shouted loud enough for Kohl’s to hear its call for a new department store.
“We listen to our customers and we listen to the community. When the community wants a store we do everything we can to put one there,” said Phillip Daniel, Kohl’s district manager. “It’s all about the customers.”
The City of Greer was awarded summary judgment for $400,000 from Garrick Good and his Cardinal Real Estate Group, Inc. from a proposed deal for the Allen Bennett Hospital campus that went from bad to worst for nearly four years. Mike Sell, assistant city manager, briefed city council Tuesday.
Langley and Associates was also among the creditors given favorable judgment.
The countdown for Kohl's opening in Greer is less than five days.
The 67,000-square foot store, at 1320 W. Wade Hampton Blvd. will have a soft opening Sunday from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. with the grand opening scheduled on Friday, Sept. 26 at 8:45 a.m.
