If you have traveled past the Oakbrook Square Shopping Center within the last few weeks, you probably noticed that some of the older buildings in the strip mall have been demolished. The work being done there is in preparation for Summerville’s newest grocery store chain, Lowes Foods.
Lowes Foods is a Winston-Salem, North Carolina based grocery chain that is unlike anything that we currently have in the Summerville area. “Our Summerville store will be very focused on supporting all things local,” Lowes Foods president Tim Lowe said. “Our commitment to local includes offering produce sourced through our partnership with more than 200 local farmers, and featuring a wide assortment of unique local products found throughout the store.”
Lowes Foods also believes in community and that is why they have created what they call Community Table. Community Table is exactly that, and will showcase local chefs teaching cooking classes, as well as local wineries, farmers, and other small businesses that will sample their homegrown, home-made items.
Anticipated opening date if late 2017.
