RIDGEVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) - Walmart’s $220 million-dollar international distribution center in Ridgeville is now open for business.
Officials from Dorchester County and Gov. Henry McMaster spoke at the grand opening on Friday.
“This is just one more sign of our great prosperity that’s going to keep on going,” McMaster says. “This is one of the three largest such distribution centers in the world.”
So far, Walmart has hired over 900 associates and they are looking to hire a total of 1,300 full-time employees. The Walmart distribution center is expected to increase the Port of Charleston’s volume by 5 percent, bringing them more jobs as well.
Jeffrey Holzbauer, General Manager of Imports with Walmart says this center will have a huge impact on Dorchester County. Not only for the number of jobs they are bringing but the pay rate as well.
Along with the distribution center, there are 122 retail stores in the state. In total, Walmart employs over 30,000 associates in South Carolina.
This will be the 5th distribution facility in the state, and its impact will reach farther than South Carolina. The center will supply 850 Walmart and Sam’s Club stores across the southeast.
Holzbauer says over the past few years keeping shelves in stores stocked has been an issue. The distribution center’s main purpose is to limit situations like that happening by making sure the right stores have the right products at the right time.
“Trailers come in from the port, folks then unload them,” Holzbauer says. “They go to a storage rack until a store is running low on inventory. Then we send associates to pick that product, take it to the ship dock, and put it in containers that’s destined for a regional distribution center.”
The town of Ridgeville was chosen for the distribution center for a few reasons. It’s strategically located relatively close to the port of Charleston. Holzbauer says there were a lot of qualified associates in the area, and there’s access to major transportation channels to get their products to their stores as fast as possible.
South Carolina Ports Authority President and CEO Jim Newsome says this building could be the tip of the iceberg for a county focused on business.
“We own this whole industrial campus, except we granted this to Walmart, so we’re working on other projects out here,” Newsome says. “I think there’s a number of distribution projects that can come here because of the location between I-26 and I-95.”

RIDGEVILLE — Lowcountry paleontologist Skye Basak credits recent torrential rains for her team’s discovery of a tusked walrus skull dating back roughly 2 million years.
Basak and her staff at Palmetto Fossil Excursions found the basketball-sized skull buried about 25 feet below the surface in a part of Ridgeville that scientists believe to be an ancient barrier island. It will be donated to the College of Charleston’s Mace Brown Museum of Natural History.
Basak has uncovered several other fossils in the same area over time, but this one was special. When the team found it, Basak said she was “completely out of this world excited,” jumping with joy and “freaking out.”
“Of all the things that we could have possibly unearthed on this recovery mission this was by far the most sought-after speciman,” said Basak, co-owner of Palmetto Fossil Excursions, a charter paleontology service. “For me, it was the goal.”
Recent rainfall caused part of the skull and both of the tusks to separate. But all of the pieces were recovered and will be reconstructed.
It is rare to find complete walrus skulls with both tusks, and that’s one reason this particular fossil is special. It belongs to the extinct type Ontocetus.
There are about three or four partial-to-complete Ontocetus skulls known in the world, according to College of Charleston research associate and adjunct instructor Robert Boessenecker. He said there are 2½ skulls from the Netherlands and Belgium and a nice one from Japan.
The local skull is likely the only one in the United States of this genus, which ranged as far south as Florida and Morocco and northward to the Netherlands back in ancient times.
Researchers will likely conduct further research on the skull once it is turned over to the museum.
“Because it’s one of only a few skulls of this genus known worldwide, it might be a new species because it’s much younger, geologically speaking, than all the other specimens,” Boessenecker said.
South Carolina may not seem like the ideal environment for walruses. But the animals have only been glacial for 100,000 or 200,000 years, according to Boessenecker.
“We know it had a climatic tolerance, kind of like a modern monk seal, living in subtropical through at least temperate waters and possibly cold-temperate,” Boessenecker said.
The animal’s characteristics resembled sea lions but with curved tusks. Modern walrus tusks are straight.
Basak and the others from the excursion group have found several other fossils in the state belonging to extinct species. Earlier this year they uncovered a giant prehistoric whale flipper about 200 feet away from where the walrus skull was found.
“So many people that live here don’t even realize what’s beneath their feet,” Basak said. “It’s kind of a goal for me to revolutionize that, to bring it to the forefront for the people of South Carolina.”
Her company has donated several scientifically critical specimens to the Mace Brown Museum, including the whale flipper. Once the walrus skull is donated, Boessenecker said it will be catalogued and put on display.

RIDGEVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) – While inflation is impacting what you pay for food at the grocery store, a local farmer is making some changes to deal with economic realities.
Hickory Bluff Berry Farms for years has offered a chance to pick your own strawberries. But you’ll soon have the chance to pick other produce in an effort to help you – and them – save money and time.
Lowcountry farmer Michael Parker listed off many of the items grown at the farm in Ridgeville.
“We grow strawberries, blueberries, blackberries – we grow a large variety of produce. We do green zucchini, golden zucchini, Zephyr squash; we grow lots of tomatoes and okra,” he said.
Since opening in 2008, they had strawberries available for U-Pick; but because it has become harder and harder to find people to help harvest their produce, they decided to make a change.
“We’ve actually implemented something this year to try and help with that. With the cost of labor going up and the lack of labor being able to help us, we’ve had to adjust,” Parker explained.
They have a new business model moving forward.
“Most of the produce that we generally pick and sell to large distributors, we’re not picking now till you pick and that allows the everyday person to bring the kids out or come out and select what they want at a fraction of the cost at the store or even here at the stand.”
You can pick the produce, not including the berries, for just a flat rate of $1.50 per pound.
“I like all of our produce; it’s $1.50 a pound. People [can] dig their own potatoes, pick their squash, go pick their own cucumbers.”
Parker went on to say, “We’re trying to shave cost as much as we can. We’ve changed the way that we farm- we’re not spraying the toxic pesticides and chemicals and stuff as much anymore because it costs so much to get it.”
Parker said they are trying their best as farmers to feed as many people as they can at an affordable price.
The Hickory Bluff Berry Farms is open Monday through Saturday from 9 AM until 5 PM. They may open Friday nights from time to time.

RIDGEVILLE, S.C. (WCIV) — Seven people have been arrested following an investigation into gamecock fighting and illegal gambling in and around Ridgeville.
On Friday, authorities said the individuals were arrested on Wednesday after the investigation by a joint team of federal, state, and local law enforcement officers.
Those arrested are facing a slew of charges following an indictment, with counts for some including animal fighting venture, illegal gambling operation, conspiracy to violate animal fighting venture, and false statement to a federal law enforcement officer.
The individuals, and their respective charges, are listed below:
Officers have placed a legal hold on the property involved following the indictment. Authorities also seized cash and three vehicles that they said were used in connection with the operation.
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Office of Inspector General, South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED), and Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office worked together to investigate this incident. Assistant United States Attorney Chris Lietzow will prosecute the case.
Marty Irby, executive director of Animal Wellness Action, a nonprofit organization that works to prevent cruelty to animals through public policy, issued the following statement on the arrests:
We applaud the local, state, and federal authorities for taking action and arresting these suspects on cockfighting related charges and hope they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Rep. Nancy Mace has been a tremendous leader on this issue and we applaud her continued work to crackdown against this egregious abuse as well.
Cockfighting runs rampant in South Carolina as we've seen in case after case over the past few years. This gruesome blood-sport is not only cruel but is a serious risk to both human and poultry health as fighting birds can easily spread Avian Influenza, a disease that has recently appeared in at least 35 states in the U.S. It’s time to stamp out this form of staged cruelty.
