OfficeMax, 10204-A Two Notch Road: 2006   12 comments

Posted at 8:33 pm in historic,stores

I've written before about OfficeMax pulling out of the Columbia market. I had forgotten that they had the store on Two Notch as well as the one on Bush River Road until I drove by and saw that a new tenant was going in.

I don't have any problem with a Haloween store, per se. I don't know that it's happening as much around here, but in some places at least, Haloween is becoming quite the big adult party holiday. I remember spending one Haloween in DC, and taking the Metro to Dupont Circle for supper. Now, I won't say the escalator into the Dupont Circle station is long, but I will say that after you're on it for a while, you expect to see an Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Enter Here sign. Of course, what goes down also comes up, and being on that escalator behind 20-somethings costumed as naughty nurses and "wicked" witches is, um, inspiring.

So, anyway, I'm fine with a Haloween store, but I do have to cavil a bit about the timing. I mean, come on Haloween is the last day of October -- that's two and a half months from now! If you're in the mood to pick out a Haloween costume now, you're probably one of those annoying folks who already have all your Christmas cards written..

And oddly enough, this was the second Haloween store I saw today. There's one setting up on US-1 out near I-26 as well!

"I got a rock".

UPDATE 11 March 2011: Updated the closing date based on the comments. Also added full street address.

  4. Found this that confirms Javier's notion that OfficeMax left Columbia in 2006:

    OFFICEMAX TO LEAVE COLUMBIA
    From Staff and Wire Reports
    Columbia's three OfficeMax stores will be among 110 locations closing nationwide.

    The nation's No. 3 office supplies retailer announced Thursday that the Columbia stores - on <a href="http://columbiaclosings.com/wordpress/?p=130&quot; Bush River and Two Notch roads, and Harbison Boulevard - will shut their doors by April 1.

    OfficeMax's six other stores in South Carolina will remain open, including stores in Greenville, North Charleston, Spartanburg, Myrtle Beach, Orangeburg and Greenwood.

  11. Ok folks, now that Micheal's has firmly moved into the former Linens n Things, the wall that seprated Micheal's old space between where OfficeMax was originally appears to be in the process of being knocked out so that Dick's Sporting Goods takes over both the former OfficeMax and where Micheal's was...

    (not 100% sure but that is my current assessment)
