Richland Mall Demolition, 3400 Forest Drive: February 2024 etc   3 comments

Posted at 10:22 pm in closing

p1930814_tn.jpg

As of yet the demolition appears to be limited to taking down some parking lot lights and cutting some trees. I would guess not much interior teardown has been done, because I don't see a lot of refuse & dumpsters, but that's just a guess.

I'll keep updating this post as the demolition continues...

The Bojangles at Cross Hill Market on the corner of Cross Hill Road, Fort Jackson Boulevard & Devine Street has been razed. The restaurant is to be built back with two drive-through lanes and patio seating. You can read about it on WLTX or at The Post & Courier.

There doesn't seem to be a firm date to expect the new building to be in service.

Dems Fine Jewelers: 1068 Lake Murray Boulevard: April-ish 2023   no comments

Dems on Lake Murray Boulevard is closing on the retirement of the owners.

According to ColaDaily, they have been in business for 54 years, and that's certainly a very good run. The owners also state they are open to the building continuing as a jewelers with another name and owners, but apparently there is nothing definite on tap.

I remember the place as Dems House Of Diamonds from radio ads growing up, and they were still operating under that name in their Boozer Shopping Center storefront. They moved from that location to the current one in 2004.

There is no definite closing date as it all depends on the inventory, but the ColaDaily piece suggests the closing sale could last into April.

Koffee Koala was the follow-on in this Cayce Crossing suite to another animal themed coffee bar The Lazy LLama, which closed in 2021.

According to their Facebook, while 3 February was their last day as a storefront after being unable to renegotiate the lease, they continue doing a delivery business through their website.

Granby Grill, 612 Whaley Street: 24 September 2023   3 comments

Granby Grill was the follow-on operation in this storefront to White Duck Taco Shop. It wasn't really on my radar because of the location, but judging by their Facebook, which took a very good-natured approach to their closing, as well as tweaking The State for only noticing them at that point, the owners seem to have a lively sense of humor. In fact, they namechecked me in their opening announcement on the White Duck closing post, and I certainly take no pleasure in closing that loop.

The Facebook entries go on past the closing date, and it appears they were working on other concepts for the place, first burgers and then perhaps biscuits. I'm not sure if either of those will happen, but the biscuit nameplate is up, and the door was unlocked and ajar when I dropped by to get these shots, so we will see what happens.

Long's Drugs / Rise Fitness, 2801 Millwood Avenue: Late 2023 (Moved)   no comments

Google Streetview suggests that Long's Drugs was here until probably sometime in 2020, being definitely gone by April 2021. It appears that Rise moved in in 2022, and was left sometime after October 2023. Judging from the web, they moved to 1727 Harden Street after that, and this building is currently vacant. You can see the LoopNet information here.

I can't really say anthing about this Decker Boulevard barber shop, but commenter Sidney says it had been there for quite a while, and it's always a shame when an oldstyle barber closes.

I have always had good experiences with Goodyear service centers, though I never went to this one, on Saint Andrews Road between Piney Grove Road and the industrial plant. Their sign says they are moving to 141 Harbison, but as commenter Andrew points out, that is an existing location, so it is more like a consolidation. Given the ongoing shortage of service technicians, hopefully everybody was able to stay on. There are a number of other garages in the area, so it remains to be seen what will happen at this building in the future.

This Red Roof Inn was kind of at the corner of Berryhill Road, Saint Andrews Road and I-26. Technically the old Steak & Ale is more exactly at the corner, but anyway it was convienient to all of those.

I don't know if this closure is due to the ongoing I-26 roadwork, but that did take down the adjacent nightclub building at 14 Berryhill Road.

I have seen a number of motels torn down now, and it seems at some point, you're always going to see a lot of mattresses about, but I think this is the first time I've seen that many toilets.

As far as I can tell this former Harbison Hess store is notable only for having a $300,000 lottery winner in 2021. I am pretty sure I never stopped there, and couldn't even remember where the place was the first time I went out to get some pictures. I know a number of local Speedway stores have closed recently, but if I had to guess, I would say in this case there was a specific plan for the property rather than the company having issues, or at least that's my assumption as the property is already fenced with demolition having started, I would not expect this spot to stay vacant for long.
