I was going sort of the wrong way, and didn't get great pictures, but here is the former Circle K at the intersection of Hardscrabble & Clemson Roads. Commenter Andrew reports that it has moved to the catty-corner opposite in a former Kangaroo Express/BP location possibly since the two locations would be under the same chain ownership after Circle K bought out Kangaroo. Unfortunately, I forgot that part of the comment while I was driving around, and thus did not take any pictures of the other corner..

(Hat tip to commenters Clay & Andrew)

UPDATE 15 May 2017 -- Finally got back to get some better pictures of this place:

  1. This is now a handsome pile of rubble.

  2. I saw the car wash was gone this morning at 8:00am when I rode by. So the building is gone now too?

  3. Just on the other side of Clemson Road there is signage in front of Mr. Suds Car Wash indicating that they were closed to widen Hard Scrabble...makes me wonder what will become of some of hte other stuff along this stretch of roadway and part of me wishes Hard Scrabble hadn't been allowed to build like it did before this widening took place....

    I was reading that in order to upgrade Clemson & Sparkleberry Lane that Frank's Car Wash is moving up the road a little...

    Last couple of times I've been down Hard Scrabble it's clear to me that the widening preparations are underway...I just wonder if Hard Scrabble will ever get a full interchange at I-77...

  4. @Sidney Yep, the main building too. Seems like it took forever to get started, but now that it has, things are moving along really quickly.

    The front half of the Mr. Suds was gone yesterday so the rest can't be far behind. The medical office next to it had a for sale sign out recently so I'm assuming that building is being spared the bulldozer.

  5. @Andrew I heard that Frank's Car Wash will move on Clemson next to Sumo's. AND the CVS will be torn down and the Exxon station will be torn down as well.

  6. My understanding is similar to Sidney's on Frank's but haven't heard anything on the CVS or Exxon station but I have heard that the CVS there is one of the highest performing CVS locations around...I wonder if this means Sparklebery will be widened...if it were to be widened I'd expect it to go to at least Mallet Hill Road...

  7. It is going to be widened exactly to Mallet Hill Rd. It's part of the Penny Tax Program that is being used to widen Hardscrabble and the intersection at Clemson, North Springs/Rhame Rd next to Sandhills.
