Lowes Foods taking shape, opening targeted for fall

Tim Lowe is keynote speaker.

Lowes Foods is beginning to take shape with its opening targeted for the fall.

The store’s walls are going up, the asphalt has been laid in the parking lot and islands formed for the lights. The retaining wall separating the CPW substation from the store is complete.

Greer will host Lowes Foods' first entry into the Upstate market. A second site has been announced in Simpsonville but that store is still in the permitting stage.

Customers will enter Lowes’ parking lot from Suber Road where the front of the store faces.

About 100 hosts will be employed with casting calls for the more “entertaining jobs”. The store will be 45,000 square feet.

Lowes Foods commits to local sourcing for more than 250 products. The store will host vendor fairs in the spring seeking local and regional products that may find its way into its stores.

The Greer store is the first in a new expanded market for Lowes Foods as part of an overall company strategy to remodel existing stores and expand into the Upstate.

A focal point of the new Greer store will be Lowes Foods Community Table, where shoppers can gather to sample, enjoy and learn how to prepare local foods. The Community Table, which will be constructed of reclaimed wood, also will offer events such as recipe sampling, crafts for children, gluten free eating tips and couponing classes.
