I noticed this large brick warehouse on Shop Road last month, but haven't been about to find out much about it online. Apparently it was Colonial Warehouse. This LoopNet listing has some details, though it says the property is off the market, which I am pretty sure is incorrect. Anyway, it's a 266,488 square foot building on a 10 acre property. The listing also suggests "The site is ideally suited for a multi-family or student housing development", because heaven knows we don't have enough student housing in Columbia.

If you look at the Google Maps aerial view, you can see that, at that time anyway, the property is well supplied with porta-potties. Not sure what that is about, as otherwise there does not seem to be any work going on there.

  1. That was warehouse for old Colonial Grocery Stores which became Big Star before they failed.

  2. The porta potties are because the parking lot is used for tailgating during Carolina games.

  3. I found a 1956 news article indicating that Colonial was giving away a new car each week for eight weeks as part of their celebration of seven years as 'Carolina Division Headquarters'.
