Anna's Linens, 256 Harbison Boulevard Suite G: Early 2015   no comments

Anna's Linens replaced (after a hiatus) Lifeway Christian Stores in Harbison Court in late 2011. Now some three plus years later, they are gone as well, and Harbison Court is undergoing fairly extensive facade work and renovation. On the whole I am impressed with how they have kept the place up and made good such major losses as Barnes & Noble and Officemax.

In the meantime, Anna's still has two Columbia locations, one on Forest Drive and another on Two Notch.

Save A Lot, 6646 Garners Ferry Road: Spring 2015 (moving)   1 comment

The only time I was ever in a Save A Lot was when I lived in Aiken, and there was one on US-1 heading out of town for I-20. It was the most "off" brands I had seen since they heyday of 'generic' items back in the 1980s. Of course the name brand stuff probably comes from the same factories, and non-Kellog/non-Post rasin bran gets just as soggy as the big guys.

Their sign says they are moving to East Pointe Plaza, which is the old Sears location. (It is also the home of possibly the coldest Subway in the world).

As commenter James R reports, Super Dollar in Sunset Court across from Grecian Gardens has closed shop. This store was the follow-on operation to Fred's which closed in June of 2012. I'm not sure when Super Dollar opened, but I believe the storefront was vacant for a good while.

I recall seeing an articl in The State about upcoming changes to Landmark Square, and this is one of them: Jeffers-McGill have vacated their Garners Ferry location and have moved to Atlas Road.

Rite Aid Pharmacy, 818 Harden Street: April 2015   4 comments

Well, the signs are trying to spin it as a move, but since the 2708 Rosewood store already exists, I can only call it a closing.

Although it was once a grocery, this building has been a pharmacy for as long as I can remember -- It was an Eckerd's before the Rite Aid buyout of that chain. I have not stopped there for many years, possibly because the last time I did I got agressively pan-handled in the parking lot.

It appears that this may not be so much a closing as a re-branding. Conway Stores was acquired by National Stores in 2014, and National Stores operates the Fallas chain, which explains why the next store is already marqueed while the current store still has the property..

When It Fits, You Feel It!

For about the last 20 years, it has been almost mandatory to attach the word troubled to the front of Murrells Inlet's Inlet Square as in

In yet another blow to troubled Inlet Square Mall..

I never got around to posting the few pictures I have of the K-Mart which closed in 2013 although I did do a post on the Hooters outparcel, and I touched on the Spinnaker's there.

Anway, the recent closing of this Penny's which was my goto place for towels at the beach, is yet another blow, and seemed to come very quickly after the announcement rather than dragging on like the closing of the Dutch Square Belk's.

The J C Penny at Coastal Grand looks to stay open, at least for now, so they still have a Grand Strand presence, but if this keeps up, the only reason to visit Inlet Square will be to see a movie or look at books you're going to buy online later at Books A Million.

Radio Shack, 10210 Two Notch Road Suite A: March 2015   4 comments

Well, here is this week's closed Radio Shack.

This one was on Two Notch Road in front of Target, and can't have been helped by being so close to Best Buy though I believe this store predates that. In the event, I don't believe I ever shopped this store.

Garden Shop, Richland Mall Rooftop: 2014 (?)   no comments

Given that we are several days into Spring at this point, I think it is safe to say that the rooftop garden shop at Richland Mall is not just closed for the season, but is apparently closed for good.

Forest Acres still has several sites for garden supplies including the Ace Hardware nearby in the old Ritz building and the garden shop in the old First Citizen's bank at Forest Lake Shopping Center.

All Vacuums, 4711 Forest Drive Suite 9: 2014   4 comments

Comenter Patricia Lewis mentions that the Oreck Store has moved from Forest Park on Forest Drive out to Columbiana Mall. Actually, unless they changed the name back, by the time it moved it was All Vacuums, having dropped their all Oreck theme. This was actually at least the second location for the store as I know they moved here from Trenholm Plaza, replacing Ten Thousand Villages.
