Q: What happened to Greer Idol?
A: It’s a little late in the summer to be asking/addressing this question, but if you haven’t noticed by now, Greer Idol did not return for the 2017 season.
Over the past several months, I have had the opportunity to work as an intern here at The Greer Citizen. Although you may not have noticed, you have likely read some of my articles in the paper each Wednesday.

Q: What’s going in at the old Bojangles location?
A: If you haven’t noticed before this week, one of Greer’s favorite fried chicken dealers moved a few blocks down Wade Hampton to a new, larger location.
So what was left at the former site of Bojangles?
Questions and a lot of blue paint.
