Pure Chaos

Greenridge_Aerial.jpgThis, people, is the illustrious Shops at Greenridge — the latest shopping monstrosity to go up in Greenville county. It opened a couple of months ago, just in time for the holiday shopping season. Yipee.

Oh, it has Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, PetSmart, Lowe’s, Total Wine, Linen ‘n’ Things, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Marshall’s, Panera Bread, Talbot’s, and the list goes on and on.

But do not be fooled by the list of stores that make a shopper orgasmic because this place? Was built by spawns of Satan. It is a maze of roads that lead straight into the inferno of Hell — 71 acres of insane, maddening, pavement made even worse by last-minute holiday shoppers.

I know all this because this evening I was there. I threw myself and my poor purple Saturn in the midst of chaos to go to Barnes & Noble to find a book about herbal remedies for my dad. (And shut up…. I’m not talking illegal herbs! Geez, people)

The thing about the roads in the maze is that the areas where they intersect make NO SENSE. Some are four-way stops; some are not. There are pedestrian crosswalks everywhere, but NOBODY walks around this shopping center. They drive from store to store. I have seen this happen! Plus, with all the drivers trying to navigate through this God-forsaken shopping center, it would be best that no one attempt to walk around!

This is not convenience! This is insanity!

  1. OMG!!! 😮 That place must be a pure mizture of Heaven and Hell…. Everything is right there, but it’s a freakin’ nightmare to get around. At least there’s a Total Wine — you can shop, shop, shop then go get booze!


  2. emawkc – I did shop Amazon for most things, but my dad took too long making up his mind what he wanted, so it was too late to order.

    Shelly – Yes, that place is pure torture! Once I got home, I did realize that I should have gone to Total Wine while I was there, but then again, I don’t know if I could have figured out how to get there! 😯


Thoughts, anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
