Letter to the Editor

Writer offers "shot in the arm" suggestion for Edgefield retail business ideas


web posted April 6, 2009
Dear Editor,
Something Edgefield has needed for some time now is some more retail businesses. Ever since Belk closed some 25 years ago, it seems a lot of Edgefield’s retail dollars are going out of town to Aiken, North Augusta, Augusta and even Greenwood.

The old Kendall mill building would be a prime location to locate retail businesses. There is plenty of space and ample parking. Commerce, Georgia had the same situation by having an empty textile mill building and they converted the building into a number of retail outlet stores and been very successful, from what I have been told.

Why couldn’t our elected officials check into this idea? I really feel that this would be a needed “shot in the arm” Edgefield needs.

Keith McCary
Edgefield, SC
