Spartanburg Fresh Market to Relocate to Former Cinema


Greensboro, N.C.-based gourmet grocery chain The Fresh Market Inc. apparently is seeking new digs for its east-side store. According to Spartanburg County property records, the company has signed a lease on the former Converse Cinema 6 building at 1200 E. Main St. in the Converse Plaza shopping center.

A proposal in the lease shows The Fresh Market’s plans to raze the 20-year-old theater in order to make way for a new 19,000-square-foot building.

The Fresh Market would not comment on Thursday.

In 1990, The Fresh Market opened its only Spartanburg store at 141 Fernwood Drive in the Fernwood Center, a year after the center was purchased for $1.2 million by local developer George Dean Johnson Jr.
