Bob Marrett on CMB Development welcomed everyone in our Chairman’s absence. Our gift certificate winners were Tyler Long on Commonwealth Bank & Trust and Jack Brown of Shelbyville Chrysler.
We recognized our sponsor, Carpet Specialist represented by David Turner, Chad Turner, and Denise Duncan.
Bill Bardenwerper of Bardenwerper, Talbott & Roberts introduced our guest and went over a informational PowerPoint presentation.
Kelvin Antill from Paragon Outlets spoke about the proposed Simpsonville Outlet Mall that would be built at the southeast Quadrant of I-64 on Buck Creek Road in Simpsonville. The property is owned by Trio Realty Company. We learned about this project and the economic development opportunities it could provide. Why Simpsonville? The outlet store has to be located away from the regular stores. No roads would have to be relocated and sewers are readily available. The out lots are already rezoned for banks and restaurants. The plans are to build up scale with architectural like stone.
Our next meeting is: November 6th.
