About Us

Who and What is ARBA?

It’s the residents and businesses that make us unique. It’s a community partnership for preserving our charm. It’s a resource for connecting and contributing.

Augusta Road Business Association began in the early 1980’s. A group of businesses owners met one evening to discuss ways to collaborate and promote Augusta Road as a destination for business and retail. Ahead of their time, these owners succeeded in creating ARBA. We are now defined as a coalition of businesses and residents who work together to establish a unified voice for the community. Our mission is to promote area advancement, economic development and provide support and communication for businesses along the Augusta Road corridor.

Now ARBA has over 85 members and continues to grow yearly. We are a voice of not just business owners but of the people who call Augusta Road their home.

We believe Augusta Road is the ideal destination. With its unique charm and history it continues to be one Greenville’s most popular attractions. We welcome you to the neighborhood, and invite you to join us and help improve our association’s efforts as we support the growth of our member businesses now and in the future.
