This was the follow-on operation to BJ's Cafe, and looks to have been open only during the spring & summer of 2016.

As commenter badger speculated it is now to become Chickadees Diner location and according to their Facebook they hope to be open at the start of October.

Palmetto Health Pain & Orthopedic Care Center, 223 Stoneridge Drive: 2015   1 comment

According to this site Palmetto Health leased this whole building and "[t]he building has a procedure area, a nursing station, and rehabilitation room". You can see a picture of it in operation here.

I believe that as in the Decker location, they may have moved in a different direction, because as far as I can tell from the phonebook, this practice has not been relocated.

The current location of Bogart's in West Columbia has been purchased, and the building will be torn down to furnish more parking for the adjacent Zesto. According to West Metro News, the owner is looking for another location, but as of late August had not found one.

Commenter badger points out that Thermo King "[T]he smart choice for transport temperature control" has moved from this Shop Road location out to 30 Sontagg Drive in Gaston.

I actually saw the new location from I-26 on my last trip to Florida, but didn't know I should take a picture then, and didn't want to get stuck in the standard I-26 traffic jam just for that last weekend.

Furniture stores are generally kind of invisible to be, so I'm not sure exactly how long Havertys has been across from Dutch Square, but cerainly for decades. Now, like everything else, it is moving to Harbison.

UPDATE 21 March 2018 -- The Harbision location is now open:

Buddy's Saucy Dogs, 5225 Sunset Boulevard: 27 August 2016   3 comments

If you look way in the back left in the first shot above, you can vaguely see the Buddy's storefront. For some reason, when I went by this little Lexington plaza the other night, I was thinking Buddy's was in the slot next to Brueggers and did not take any pictures of the right storefront. (I certainly should have known better, as I did a closing for Mr. Hibachi which was the real former tenant next to Brueggers..)

Anyway, the reason I was there at all (aside from pizza at Uno) was this little article from The State, noting that Buddy's Saucy Dogs had closed down, and is to be replaced by an "artisan taco restaurant, One Taco, Two Taco".

I like hotdogs; I don't know why I very rarely get them from a restaurant. I guess I automatically think of cooking them over a fire on a stick, or over the burner on a fork..

UPDATE 10 October 2016 -- Signage for One Taco Two Taco is up. Interesting that they are going the full bar route. That puts them up with Cantina 76:

Butterfly Life, 1350 Bush River Road Suite A: 2010   no comments

This little Wal-Mart outparcel in fact predates Wal-Mart and may have actually existed while the late, lamented Bush River Mall was still going.

At any rate this was one of several Butterfly Life locations in the metro area. The Feb 2008-2009 phonebook actually lists four, though they were all gone by the Feb 2010-2011 book. As best I can determine, Butterfly Life was some sort of a day spa.
