SAVANNAH, Ga.: Savannah Bee Company will open its new retail storefront in Greenville, South Carolina, marking its 15th location nationwide. As part of Savannah Bee’s growing hive, the store will support the company’s mission to save the bees through specialty honey, raw honeycomb, body care and wellness items. Rooted in Georgia, Savannah Bee is widely known not only for its products, but its work to educate consumers about the importance of beekeeping and restore honeybee populations worldwide.
Despite a turbulent year for consumer and honeybee populations, Savannah Bee’s strong foundation, booming e-commerce platform, and experiential storefronts have positioned the company for continued growth. The new store allows Savannah Bee to expand its footprint while staying ahead of retail trends by opening first as a pop-up, and later as a permanent, full-service store.
“Each one of our stores is an extension of the Savannah Bee brand that helps support our overarching goal to save the bees,” says founder Ted Dennard. “We feel extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to continue working towards this goal as we strive to live as bees live – symbiotically with nature and contributing positively to the world around us,” he adds. “Every product we sell gives us a stronger platform to educate consumers about the importance of honeybees in our ecosystem and helps us take actionable steps to support them.”
The Greenville shop opened on Friday, October 30 at 123 N. Main Street, Greenville, SC 29601, and can be reached via phone at 864.535.5482. Store hours are Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 12 to 6 p.m. The store will close temporarily in January 2021 to build a honey-inspired café and mead bar before reopening permanently.
