The former downtown Bi-Lo (or Piggly Wiggly) parking lot at 445 Meeting Street will now be home to Meeting Street Eats, a new food truck village.
Opening during the week, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., three to six food trucks will be on site for lunch diners in search of a quick meal. Meeting Street Eats will offer dedicated parking spots and places to sit and eat. The group says that it tracked 150 trucks operating locally.

When Bi-Lo vacated the property in 2016, it was controversial because the supermarket served the Eastside community, which has been without a close-proximity grocery store since. According to the Post & Courier, real estate firm Greystar purchased the address, and at the time, the company said the space would become a mixed-use property.
