Greenville residents now have a new place to shop! Gabe’s (formerly Gabriel Brothers, Inc.) is headquartered in Morgantown, West Virginia stocking not only clothing but shoes, handbags, home décor, furniture, jewelry, housewares, and seasonal items. The Greenville store marks Gabe’s 44th
location nationwide and their first location in South Carolina. CEO Ken Seipel said, “Greenville is an exciting market for Gabe’s. It is a thriving community overall, with a significant presence of both regional and national company headquarters and the area has seen strong job growth with relatively little unemployment. We think it’s a perfect location for Gabe’s, allowing us to expand our offerings of great styles from famous brands at up to 70% off department store prices and to bring that value to South Carolina for the first time.”
Bright and early on Saturday, October 18th
I, along with about 200 other Greenville residents, arrived at Gabe’s for their Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting. It was a grand affair complete with megaphones, cheers, the biggest ribbon and scissors I have ever seen, and a breakfast buffet of goodies provided by local business The Bakery off Augusta. Pomp and circumstance aside, Gabe’s wants you to know that they aren’t just about retail. As a corporation, Gabe’s is very community- oriented and each store gives back to their respective communities. They worked closely with Goodwill Industries to help staff their Greenville store and are also planning to make donations to area food banks such as Harvest Hope and volunteer and do service hours at local charities.
When you shop at Gabe’s you aren’t just helping your own bank account- you’re helping your community! Gabe’s is located in the Gallery Shopping Center on Haywood Road. For more information go to www.mygabes.com
