A 40,883-square-foot shopping center in Columbia’s North Main Street district has sold for $3.7 million to a Greenville-based partnership.
NAI Columbia’s Ben Kelly and Patrick Chambers handled the sale of the property at 3900 N. Main St., according to a news release. Kelly said their development team purchased and redeveloped the property before executing the sale, a process which took about a year.
Kelly said the shopping center was bought by 3900 N. Main Partners LLC out of Greenville.
The shopping center will be home to a new 30,000-square-foot O’Reilly Auto Parts “Auto Hub” which will serve Columbia and surrounding markets as an auto parts store, warehouse and distribution center, according to the release.
The hub anchors the three-tenant center located at the junction of Main Street and Monticello Road, the former location of a Bi-Lo Supermarket which closed in 2018. The O’Reilly’s hub joins North Main Kidney Center and Titlemax in the shopping center.
NAI Columbia’s development team purchased the former grocery store in December 2021, continuing the North Main redevelopment expansion. The property underwent extensive renovations and opened to the public as an O’Reilly Auto Parts store and “Ultra Hub” in October 2022. Kelly and Chambers successfully brokered the sale of the property on Dec. 30, 2022.
