Florence May Get Downtown Grocery Store


Florence CBDThe city of Florence is backing an upcoming code-named development – “Project Leopard Orchid” – that will bring a $1.6 million investment to the downtown and surrounding areas.

Though officials didn’t give any specifics, city council documents indicate a project that will bring “quality, authentic grocery items and local produce” to a “store facility” to serve downtown, as well as the northern, northwestern and eastern parts of the city.

The Florence City Council approved a $300,000 incentive package for the project’s developers in order to facilitate the start-up, a common move by the city for downtown development projects.

“It’s a project designed to provide within the North Dargan Street and Darlington Street corridor,” Mayor Stephen J. Wukela said. “Obviously we’re aware of the needs in that area, and this investment meets all of our typical analysis for investment.”
