The Greer area saw plenty of changes in the business community in 2017. Longtime fixtures such as Greer BBQ closed up shop, but new boutiques and small businesses continued to pop up along the way. Here are a few highlights from the year that was.


Roth over pension

Q: My wife and I are both 25 years old, and we’re working on Baby Steps 4, 5 and 6. I have a 401(k) through my employer, and she has a pension. Currently, we’re falling short of the 15 percent of income you advise putting toward retirement. Should we get IRAs, or start stocking money away in her pension?

Husband’s business is dying

Q: My husband and I have four kids, and I make $50,000 a year. He runs a small business that has been floundering for a while now, so we’re basically living off my income. Part of that income is going into the business. Plus, we don’t have much in savings, and we’re behind on our house payments. Do you have any advice?
