August 18, 2020

Colliers International | South Carolina’s Mary Winter Teaster and Tripp Bradley represented the tenant, Garners Ferry Beverage LLC, the owner of Green’s Discount Beverages, in the leasing of ±17,500 square feet of retail space at Landmark Square Shopping Center in Columbia, SC.

“Representing Green’s while searching for their next location in the Columbia market was a real compliment to Colliers and our team. To represent the most recognized and successful spirits company in the region dating back three decades is quite an endorsement,” said Mary Winter Teaster, Senior Brokerage Associate with Colliers International | South Carolina. “With this additional store, Green’s will expand their market presence across the entire central South Carolina region with its vast array of wines, beer and spirits and all types of party needs. This property search stretched over multiple years to ensure the ideal location was secured for Green’s.”

Landmark Square Shopping Center is located at 6880 Garners Ferry Road in Columbia, South Carolina. The ±170,000-square-foot retail center includes major tenants like Burkes Outlet, Ross and Big Lots. This retail hub is located at the Interstate 77 beltway, providing convenient access to the Columbia MSA.

Green’s Discount Beverages was founded in 1937 in Midtown Atlanta. Since then, they’ve expanded to Myrtle Beach, Greenville and Columbia. In 2003, Green’s opened a new type of store, Green’s Beverage Warehouse, near Harbison Boulevard in Columbia. This was a ±15,000-square-foot warehouse full of pallets of wine, beer and miscellaneous goods. Today, Green’s remains a small, family-owned and operated business.

Teaster is a Senior Brokerage Associate and member of the Colliers office brokerage team, who specializes in serving and advising local small business property owners, buyers, tenants and landlords. Bradley is a Vice President with Colliers International, focusing on retail land and site selection brokerage. He specializes in analyzing the market for opportunities and guiding clients through the site selection decision-making process.
