Closed Convenience Store Torn Down

A Greenville convenience store, one of several shut down earlier this summer, was leveled Wednesday morning.

It didn't take long for an excavator to rip apart the Greenville Stop 2 at the intersection of Bancroft Avenue and Farmville Blvd.

The Stop 2, along with the Greenville Stop One, Pitt Stop One and the Superfresh Convenience Store, were all declared a nuisance because of criminal activity that police say was going on at the businesses.

One Greenville city council member said she would like to see the other closed businesses torn down as well.

This hasn't been a good day for some, the landlards of the property say they hoped the store could be saved and rented to the church behind the store. They tell us the city would not listen to their requests.
