GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

There's a lot of dirt moving around at Magnolia Park in Greenville.

But that didn't stop Lanie Ferrell and her family from going to the movie theater.

"We're big movie fans," Ferrell said. "It's just now when you show up five minutes before the show - takes you longer to get inside."

That's because work crews turned some areas of the parking lot into a construction zone. However, Ferrell doesn't mind.

"I like Dave & Busters. It's going to be busy in this area," she said.

Yard House Bar and Restaurant and Toby Keith's I Love This Bar will soon open in the park.

"We're under construction and plan to open another 160,000 square feet by the end of the year," Executive Vice President with Menin Development Marc Yavinsky said. "A couple of things people like about Magnolia Park is the accessibility off the two interstates."

Developers are bringing in a lot of firsts to the state, like the Beef Jerky Outlet. The store sells more than jerky.

"We have exotics like the wild game - venison, elk, buffalo, kangaroo and alligator," Steven Crane said.

He's the owner of Beef Jerky Outlet. He said they also sell original rubs for meats and sauces. They also have something unique for customers who want to try something different.

"We've got suckers with ants and crickets and worms in them," Crane said.

And because Magnolia Park gets a lot of traffic, he said it's good for business.

"So, you get a lot of foot traffic," Crane said.

Don Seabolt is one of those customers walking the shopping area.

"It's like one-stop shopping almost because you can park and just walk everywhere," Seabolt said.

He's sampling what Magnolia Park has to offer.

"I tried Bad Daddy's last week, it was good," he said.

And on Thursday afternoon, he sat down at Babaziki's Mediterranean Grill.

"We make everything fresh," Ashley Bloice said. "Customers can just pop in and say, 'Let's see what we can try here.'"

It's a new grill where pitas and gyros are a new option for an area that's under construction.
