Vacant for more than three years, the former Office Depot building in Greer will be revived at last. While the building must be significantly renovated, John Harris Body Shops is expected to bring life to the location late this year.
“Re-adapting the 21,000-square-foot building is a win-win for Greer and John Harris Body Shops,” said John Parker of Broadstreet Partners. “Any time you can bring an abandoned building back to life, it dramatically helps the community.”
John Harris Body Shops hired the team of Parker and Ryan Koop of Broadstreet Partners, headquartered in Greenville, to help select an Upstate site.
Headquartered in Columbia, the body shop expansion with its first Upstate location will include more than 20 full-time positions that will be sourced locally.
“We are excited to serve the community of Greer very soon,” said Zachary Taylor, CEO of John Harris Body Shops.
John Harris Body Shops has been family-owned for more than 40 years with locations in South Carolina and Georgia.
