Spartanburg High’s New Location Brings Growth to East Main 7/31/18
Development has been picking up on East Main Street lately and it seems to be, at least partially, because of the new Spartanburg High School location.
“Things are blowing and going right now,” said Ben Hines, president and co-owner of Spencer/Hines Properties.
Hines believes Spartanburg High School’s move has become “a catalyst for more attention and further growth.”
So far, this seems to be true with both IHOP and Golden Chick moving into the east side to capitalize on the high school traffic. In regards to retail, the growth isn’t limited to the immediate vicinity of the high school. Hillcrest Shopping Center is filling up – OrangeTheory Fitness and Talbots both recently leased space in the center – and the nearby Drayton Mills Marketplace announced three new businesses (Holliday Brewing, Lauren Ashtyn Collection headquarters, and Hypersign) last week.
