Magazines Feature the City of Greer

The City of Greer was flying high in May when Southwest Airlines’ Spirit in-flight magazine featured a 40-page spread on the Upstate. With 10 million passengers flying Southwest during any given month, the exposure to the city’s people, places, events, and businesses is expected to pay dividends for years.

The special section, “Meet the Upstate of South Carolina,” was filled with references to the city’s economic opportunities, downtown, restaurants, festivals, parks, infrastructure for growth, and quality of life.

Just five months later, the city stood alone in the spotlight in Sandlapper magazine. The autumn edition featured a five-page spread entitled “Greer Finds its Niche,” highlighting the city’s history, dining, and business.

“We can’t be anything but extremely pleased with the exposure,” said Reno Deaton, executive director of the Greer Development Corporation. “It’s the culmination of years and years of work to cultivate those assets that hopefully will translate into more economic opportunities for Greer.”
