The Charleston-based retailer is in the final year of its lease on Laurens Road and plans to open in the new location late this year or early 2018, according to a news release.
Grayson Burgess, a part-time Half-Moon employee and full-time real estate agent for The Burgess Co., facilitated the acquisition of the property, which was originally built as an auto parts store, the release said.
Half-Moon plans to thoroughly renovate the building complying with the same standards used in the construction of the company's LEED Platinum-certified distribution center in North Charleston. The company also plans for the new location to be a net-zero building, according to the release. All modeling and net-zero building calculations will be done by The Sustainability Institute of South Carolina, which will assist in making the energy efficiency upgrades the building will need, according to Half-Moon Outfitters.
The company is also in talks with a local beer maker and a boutique coffee shop and plans to have one or both as co-tenants, depending on final space requirements, the news release said. Half-Moon’s current retail shops typically occupy 10,000 square feet.
Half-Moon Outfitters originally opened in Greenville in 1994. The company has eight stores in South Carolina and Georgia.
