Lowes Foods to Enter Charleston Grocery Market?


LowesFoodsLogo_2013The crowded Mount Pleasant grocery store market is about to gain a new competitor.

Lowes Foods, a family-owned supermarket chain based in Winston-Salem, N.C., plans to open a nearly 50,000-square-foot store at S.C. Highway 41 and Wood Park Drive near The Gates at Dunes West subdivision. With more than 100 stores, the chain operates in the Carolinas, with five supermarkets along the Grand Strand. The nearest is on U.S. Highway 17 near Pawleys Island.

The store, including a 12-pump gas station, is planned as part of a nearly 78,000-square-foot shopping center called The Market at Mill Creek. Adams Development Co. of Charleston plans the structure on a 12-acre site across from the entrance to the Planters Pointe subdivision.

The shopping center will include five smaller stores, a gas station kiosk and a 4,500-square-foot building on an outparcel. The parking lot will not be visible from nearby roads because it will be placed in the center of the property with separate buildings and tree buffers surrounding it.
