Columbia isn't exactly a dumpster fire. We are somewhat behind Greenville in terms of retail growth, but it isn't terrible.

I will believe it when I ride by the old mall and I see work going on. Cabela's is a really cool store. I think Augusta's Bass Pro shops ruined Greenville's chances at one, but Cabela's is a better store in my opinion.

Did you guys ever get a costco? You got a whole foods and trader joes, right? Apple store? I tell you what I don't miss about cola is the stores not opening until like 2:00 on Sunday.

Trader Joe's is being built on Forest Drive. Do not have an Apple store or Costco.

Great news, I prefer Cabelas over bass pro anyways. The only thing that would make it better is if it wasn't on woodruff road.

Cola lags Greenville in retail growth, economic growth, and most importantly to me.. quality of food. I've been in Columbia for 6 years now and it has just gotten stale to me. I'm hopefully moving soon though.

Talking about the inland port.Yeah it would bring more trucks to the upstate and less between Spartanburg and Charleston on 26.The tradeoff for the upstate would be the positive economic impact.

You think so? I feel like cola has more quality local options. I don't include chains of course, of which greenvegas has more. I always attributed this to the presence of the intelligentsia from the university and the politicians and related professions.

I don't know how they will ease traffic on woodruff road. Maybe they could make a entrance/frontage road off of roper mountain road.

Default Re: Cabela's comimg to SC in 2014

I lived in South Greenville County (Golden Strip Area) all of my life
until 2002. I moved to Columbia then and have lived here since then. I
can tell you from having lived in and around Greenville and now, in and
around Columbia that there is a VAST amount of difference in the two
cities. Even the surrounding areas of each are as different as night and
day. Greenville has much easier access to the city through it's major
arteries than does Columbia. The Traffic flow (save Woodruff Road, near
the Old Greenville Mall) is much less stressfull even at peak times, and
there is nowhere in the heaviest trafficed areas of the City of Greenville
where trains sit stopped for 20-30 minutes at a time and block MAJOR
roads into and out of the city. ... Greenville has its bad areas, but even
when I was still a resident of Greenville county (10+ years ago) the city
had made a concerted effort with the local area managers to clean up
those areas and everytime I'm up in that area now, I can see proof of
that plan having been completed as well as an ongoing plan to continue
to improve the downtown and surrounding area.... In Columbia, there is
slow (if any) improvements taking place to the city outside of the area
around the Stadium, and the University Campus. There are A LOT of
areas around the outter parts of Columbia that need upgrading and
changing.

I heard about Cabelas coming to Greenville two days ago, when my
Nice's Fiance posted it on Facebook. I told him we can now look for
a Bass Pro Shop to come to a nearby City within a few months/year.
It would shock me if BPS came to Columbia however. I see it coming
to Spartanburg my self. Close enough to Greenville to be a major
competitor of the Cabelas to open there, and in an area that is Expanding
as well. ... Doubt Columbia will be the spot chosen if BPS decides to
compete with Cabelas in this State

Have you been to Greenville lately? The quality of food and quantity is much greater IMO. It feels like to get some food in Columbia you have to travel for a while and it is very spread out as opposed to Greenville which still is somewhat spread out but there are a lot more groupings (Pelham rd, woodruff road, Haywood rd, downtown). All of those areas I just mentioned have more then enough to choose from, and yes I am excluding some of the weaker chains like an Applebees, Ruby Tuesday, etc. which are just gross.

Here is the site plan for magnolia park. If that's where they want Cabela's, they are going to have to do a lot of demolition work first.

Box stores suck.

Debating which box store is better is arguing a Whopper vs a Big Mac
