I've thought about this so many times since we moved here 3 years ago. We are off Augusta and have to venture out to Tractor Supply every time we need pine shavings/supplies. Where are you thinking? Would love to support a local business. I think there used to be a "Feed and Seed" near downtown on Laurens Rd. At least there's an empty building there that looks like it was once! I haven't lived here long enough to know for sure. Keep us updated on your plans! Recently, several people have talked to me in our area that are in the process of getting coops/chickens. It's certainly catching on and growing!
There did use to be a feed store somewhere downtown, but it was more of the traditional model I think. For that area, you would want to market it as a "boutique" style urban homesteading store. Connect with Carolina Honey Bee Company or Sky Top Orchard and see if you can sell their honeys and other goods. Consider a consignment farmers market model so people who have extra can have a year round outlet for small quantities of things like eggs and produce without the overhead or work of the traditional farmers market. Set out some upcycled tables from cables spools or other farm items and serve some Leopard Forest coffee and muffins or something and you could have a swanky little shop!
