I confess I have no memory of this storefront on Shandon Street at Rosewood and the reversed marquee sign is not readable, but google suggests it was Shandon Day Span & Salon.
Mere words cannot describe how I came to hate this song in Elementary School.
My sister who was one grade below me doesn't remember it at all in her classes.
I thought I had a picture of this place in operation, but find I can't put my hands on it now.
This Richland Mall storefront is the old Eckerd's location, and I believe that up until the time Posh Pets grooming moved in, it had been vacant since the closing of that store. I am also pretty sure that for some reason, while it was Posh Pets the location had no interior signage or mall access.
I believe that Posh was only here for a year or two and has sinced moved out to Fort Jackson Boulevard and Sparkleberry.
UPDATE 11 November 2014 -- Here are those pictures I was looking for with the place in operation:
Well, Hypnosis Information Line -- that's one of the more interesting listings I've seen. Unfortunately I don't know anything else about it. Or maybe I did and I've been told to forget..
LoopNet says this nice old home was built in 1930 and now has 8 offices. This link says it was forclosed on at some point, but since it also says it sits on 44 acres and was built in 1992, I'm not sure I give that any credence.
Anyway, the key point is that it is soon to become Silver Spoon bakery and coffee, something that Devine Street really could use.
Aveda affiliate Huei Salon has moved from the Target plaza at 5135-B Sunset Boulevard (next to the old Baker Brothers / Judy's location) to Topspin Plaza a bit closer to Lexington proper at 5343-N Sunset Boulevard.

UPDATE 20 August -- Forgot I had pix of the place in operation at the Judy's closing, so I copied one to above.
Not sure what happened to my pictures here -- it looks like maybe I forgot to reset from a nighttime ISO to daylight before starting to shoot. The essentials are clear enough though, if more than a bit washed out.
The Atlanta Bread in North Myrtle Beach closed either last year or in 2011, I'm not really sure anymore. The only other ABC at the beach was this one on SC-54 just west of the US-17 bypass interchange. For a number of years, it sat sort of all by its lonesome (though the sideroad it was on obviously implied grander plans), but finally this last year Target started building behind it, and finally opened in late 2012 or early 2013.
I had had some concerns about the place -- it was the sort of operation which seemed to have no idea how many cookies to bake to last out the whole day (I'm pretty sure your loss in day old cookies is smaller than the loss you have from not making a sale..) and had the infuriating habit, which is pretty rare in chain stores, of not honoring their posted hours if things were slow. Still, it was nice to have a bread-bowl of soup there for lunch every now and then, and I figured that if they had hung on until Target opened, they were home free. That proved not to be the case, and the place was closed when I went by in late July.
The rest of the little strip mall has a gym, fro-yo, and a party shop. I had to include some pictures of the punch-me-pirate, including the one below from a few years ago.
Bumble Botique & Bee Maternal were really, as I understand it, one operation with the area under one nameplate specializing in kids' clothes and the area under the other specializing in maternity wear. Commenter Matt suggests the stores were doing OK, but were a sideline for the owners and eventually started to become too much to deal with.

It appears someone made a big withdrawal.
I noticed one day last month when I was having lunch on the patio at Jimmy John's that it was gone, and I cannot now recall what bank it was affiliated with..
There's been a fair bit of musical chairs going on at the old Dick Dyer Toyota lot on Two Notch. The latest is that this Prestige has moved from the old gas-station-looking building at the Northeast corner of Two Notch and Albritton to the old Dick Dyer Bodyshop building at the corner of Windover Street and Two Notch. Meanwhile, the body shop has moved into the old dealership building proper.
UPDATE 15 October 2013 -- It's now Spunky's Auto Sales:
