A former auto parts store at 603 East Stone Avenue has been transformed into an adaptive reuse space with a coffee shop, a microbrewery, a barber shop and the new location for Half-Moon Outfitters.
The 15,000-square-foot building was designed by Tara Hile at SHLTR Architects and constructed by AJBright construction.
The outdoor specialty chain first opened in Greenville on Laurens Road in 1995. In a media release, Half-Moon Outfitters says it will continue its commitment toward putting customer service and finely curated outdoor products and apparel at the forefront of the business. And as a community retailer for more than two decades, the business has emphasized building local ties by hosting trail races, movie festivals and more.
In keeping with Half-Moon’s “green” construction philosophy, the new location has specialized awnings that converts natural light into power.
In addition to Half-Moon, the other businesses are also fully-operational. “Beer, coffee, a haircut and all the best outdoor products under one roof – what more could you hope for! A new world – one stop shop,” says Katherine Smith, a Half-Moon employee.
The Stone Avenue location is the first in the Upstate and third in the state. The company, located inside Half-Moon, provides handcrafted drinks from drip coffee to lattes to frappes.
The barber shop was founded in Columbia, and Stone Avenue is the first Greenville location. The shop offers a full-range of services for men, women and children.
Brothers-in-law Chad Tydings and John Bucher opened this microbrewery with a three-and-a-half barrel system that will produce classic beers with a modern twist.
