Husk Owners Open New Restaurant On James Island

Husk has been around for a while in Charleston. Since they opened in 2010, more than a few restaurants have come and gone. Yet they continue to execute well, a very tough thing to do in the brutally competitive restaurant business.

Will Lidl Ever Open In Mount Pleasant!?

This is pure speculation on our part, but why not? Our answer is no.

The leasing agent for the Bowman Place shopping center announced on its Facebook page on October 7, 2021 that the German grocer would open in early 2022. The Post & Courier reported on July 11, 2022 that Lidl had stopped work on 2 Charleston-area stores, including the one at Bowman Place. Finally, Lidl announced yesterday they were closing 11 stores around the country, including 2 in South Carolina.

Charleston's retail scene is so vibrant I'm not the least bit worried. If I were still a retail leasing agent, I'd be telling Lidl to terminate their lease already--with a termination payment, of course--so I could find a retailer who WANTS to open in Charleston.
