What are you missing?

I just recently finished having a demographics study completed for my area of Greenville/Laurens SC. I've been trying to figure out what kind of sales, service or support company to build myself into (Sport/LT/HD-Offroad truck related of course).


So this has me kind of curious of what you guys are really lacking in your corner of SC to cater to the needs of your truck/SUV or van?

Would kind of "establishment" would you like to see nearby (Auto/Truck related of course)?

i live near a bunch of places but there is one thing that i think would be really awesome to see in a shop/store that i have never seen and that is like a lounge area with like sofa's and a tv where people can come in and hang out/bs and what not. but i am not very business savy so there is probably a reason for no one having something like that...lol

i would definitely go hang out somewhere like that if there was one though. maybe a full service bar connected to it so people can get drunk and decide to spend their money in your store/shop....

I pass by that area everyday. I get on Roper Mountain from Frontage @ 385 then take it till Batesville. Though tomorrow I'll probably take the highway since I need to stop by my bro-in-law's buisness to check on my nephew's new '79F-100 Expl. they are supposedly getting started/running.

If your talking Bucky's BBQ on Perimeter Road Donaldson Center then count me in so long as TinMan doesn't want a private discussion with you Rich.

I wonder if this post went into the moderation Q... I didn't see it yesterday? I was talking about the one off of Roper Mountain Rd.

I would like to meet up with you and the rest of the gang here somewhere soon! We could almost use it as a future g2g planning meet.
