  • Follow Business

The grand opening for Carolina Pottery is set for Thursday.

The family-owned home decor and furniture store is offering $50 gift cards to the first 100 customers who shop at the Martinez store, which opens at 10 a.m. The 65,000-square-foot store is in the former Kmart space, 3830 Washington Road, within the West Town Shopping Center. Kmart closed in September.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for Carolina Pottery was held Wednesday. The store officially opened June 7.

Carolina Pottery has three other locations in the Southeast.

K-Mart wasn't a good fit in

K-Mart wasn't a good fit in affluent Columbia County. This new place is perfect with Columbia County and the residents' conspicuous personal consumption and disposable income.

Retail

Big Lots is getting ready to open in Evans, and IGA is opening another location in Grovetown. Good news for Martinez, because this is much better than K-Mart.

We are overwhelmed with wall to wall OUTLET MALLS disguised as retail stores.

Better?

Am I to understand you think Big Lots is better than K-Mart?

I hope they prove me wrong,

I hope they prove me wrong, but Big Lots doesn't traditionally do all that well in more affluent communities. They tend to thrive in lower income areas instead.

I understand Columbia County

I understand Columbia County kids are cruising from Big Lots in Evans to Five Guys in South Augusta.... More mythical tales to follow... Say... Is that Booker T and the MG's on the radio?
