Article: Retail study outlines potential for small towns

Anderson Independent-Mail (SC)


Williamston, Iva and Pendleton were recently matched for which stores each minucipality could support.

Williamston could support a Wal-Mart, a Denny's and/or a Michael's. It has easily supported a grocery store when Winn Dixie operated there until last summer when it exited the Carolinas.

Iva is the last of Anderson's small towns lacking a grocery store. SC-81 was recently widened to four lanes some years ago through town. It is surprising this area has been ignored.

What more can Pendleton support? I think they will have a hard time keeping anything except restaurants. As a resident of Central, I probably would not drive down there for anything except that. Also, businesses are more likely to consider Clemson, which is closer to that critical college market.
