Mauldin-based grocer Bi-Lo said it is winding down for the year a four-store renovation program in the Columbia area, cutting the ribbon this month on a store makeover in West Columbia.
In July, Bi-Lo announced it had completed renovations of stores in Cayce and Columbia. A remodel at the Devine Street store in Columbia is expected to be completed in September, the company said.
Bi-Lo is moving ahead with its five-year plan to update stores and be a more competitive grocer, 15 months after the Mauldin-based company completed a financial restructuring and emerged from protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.
Fred Shropshier, Bi-Los regional vice president, during a stop in the Upstate on Monday told The Greenville News we are well on our way with the companys capital-project plan, with more than 20 remodeling projects to be completed by the end of the year.
He said more stores will be remodeled next year. That list still is being developed, he said. The company said it plans future renovations in other Midlands stores, but no more this year.
