What is Greenridge Gives Back?

What is Greenridge Gives Back?

The year 2020 made all of us more aware of helping those around us – our neighbors in our communities. So as we moved into the holidays, the most retail heavy season of the year, we at The Shops at Greenridge decided to create a philanthropic arm of our business. We called it Greenridge Gives Back, and the intent remains today to raise awareness of organizations and missions that are helping folks right here in Greenville. 

To date we have celebrated the arts, supported children’s organizations, donated tenant gift cards, collected funds and items for those in need, promoted tenant philanthropic efforts, and offered our physical space for health-related opportunities. To date our community contribution has included:

And this month we’re donating items to Project Host through a social media collaboration with @christeneats.

“I just want to express my gratitude for choosing Loaves & Fishes as the featured nonprofit for the Greenridge Gives Back event and for inviting us to come to A Most Magical Holiday Celebration! I was thrilled to see the community support Loaves & Fishes received, and I feel it was a huge success in terms of getting our name out into the community!” said Abbie Kline, Marketing & Events Coordinator for Loaves & Fishes.

We hope that you will watch our communication channels for opportunities to support our Greenridge Gives Back initiatives throughout the year, so that we can all do our part to promote awareness of all types of missions that make Greenville a wonderful place to live, work, play – and shop!

Spring Shopping Guide

Spring Shopping Guide

Who’s ready for a Spring refresh? We are!  And Spring has officially sprung here at Shops at Greenridge! 

It’s time to let go of Winter (the sweaters, boots, and blankets) and revamp your closet and home with some vibrancy.  We’re rolling out the season’s hottest trends in home, outdoor, and clothing within our over 40 retailers and we hope you’ll join us soon to check out the new inventory. Let’s add new clothes, décor, hair, nails, and even a new dinner spot to the top of your spring refresh list. Check out our guide to our favorite Spring spots.

 

 

Self Care

With warmer temperatures on the horizon, it’s time for a fresh new look! If you are looking for a way to spice up your image, why not try a new haircut? Maybe you have been thinking about getting a massage to provide yourself with a much-needed mental reset. We got you covered – at Urban Nirvana you can sit back, relax, and let the professionals take care of you! Walk out feeling refreshed and looking fabulous.

No matter which style you choose, a fresh spring manicure is a perfect way to welcome this new season. At Polished@Greenridge, you can get ready to show off those hands with the latest nail trends. They can create a custom design that is perfect for you and your spring style. 

Bath and Body Works always has a fantastic collection of scents and products to help you celebrate the arrival of Spring. From creams and shower gels to body sprays, the shop typically introduces new scents each season and this year, we love the new arrivals. Try the new Iced Lemon Pound Cake scent, perfect for kitchen hand soap or a candle. We also love the new Firefly Forest which reminds us of moonlit strolls in the park. Gingham Fresh is another scent that is lovely for Spring – with notes of pear, clementine, and daisies, our mind drifts to picnics in meadows of wildflowers. After picking up Gingham Fresh, be sure to check out the popular Gingham trend within clothing shops and pick up a new dress, or a tablecloth at Home Goods to liven up your dining room.

Enjoy the Tastes of Greenridge This Holiday Season

It’s officially the holiday shopping season. All things merry are in full swing here at Shops at Greenridge. Whether you are out & about picking up those perfect gifts for friends, or coming for a family dinner, we’ve got you covered. We’ve got a variety of dining options that are perfect for a quick stop during a shopping trip – Which Wich, for example – dining in with a group, or even for catering your at-home holiday parties. Don’t stress over cooking a multitude of things at home when our restaurants can come to your rescue, in the restaurant or to go. 

 

Quick Dining

Some of our fast casual dining options are offering new menu items that you must try this holiday season.

Panera
Panera has rolled out their Autumn Squash Soup and it is as warming as it sounds! All vegetarian, this butternut squash and pumpkin dish features hints of cinnamon and curry. We’re also big fans of cinnamon anytime the temps dip below 70, and Panera doesn’t disappoint with their Cinnamon Crunch Latte. It’s a freshly brewed espresso topped with cinnamon syrup, whipped cream, and cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top. 

Red Robin
We have two new items and one signature item to showcase for Red Robin and they are all super indulgent and tasty. First, pretzel fans – the Pretzel Bacon Beer Cheese Burger has dropped. It’s filled with so many delicious ingredients we can’t list them all. AND they’re serving it with New Belgium’s Fat Tire beer cheese for dipping…
Red Robin has also added a new holiday dessert to the menu, the OREO Peppermint Crunch Milkshake. Do you know what is the most popular burger at Red Robin? Try the Whiskey River BBQ Burger for yourself and let us know if you agree.

P.F Chang’s
P.F Chang’s is also introducing some new holiday menu items in November. Visit their menu to see the new additions, as well as some old fan favorites that might make a reappearance.

Clean Juice
Clean Juice offers organic, clean food options that are lighter and healthier. For the holidays, they’ve also expanded their menu with seasonal options that sound scrumptious – think favorites like Pumpkin and Peanut Butter. You can add pumpkin jam or seeds to your acai bowl, or try a peanut butter apple wrap.

Gift Giving

Gift cards are always the right size for people on your holiday shopping list. 

Some foodie favorite destinations for our shoppers are Cold Stone Creamery and Clean Juice both indulging; one in comfort, the other in health. Both offer traditional gift cards or you can surprise your recipient with a juice pack for a holiday health bump, or a custom ice cream cake. Cold Stone also offers packaged toppings that you can give with a gift card or pint of custom made ice cream.
