Tuesday Morning Trenholm Plaza: Jan 2008   14 comments

Posted at 5:32 pm in stores

I never went inside this location of Tuesday Morning. I had never quite figured out what kind of a store it was supposed to be, except that it didn't seem like somehing I would be interested in, and was rarely open. I finally went inside the Pawleys Island location, and decided that the concept was essentially Big Lots by Martha Stewart, although it wasn't quite as bad as that sounds since there were a number of toys and odd bits of electronics I found interesting.

I don't know the exact date the Trenholm Plaza location closed. Even though I go to the Post Office around the corner almost every day, I hadn't noticed until this morning that Tuesday Morning was gone. Just to see what would happen, I called their number, and it was not disconnected (though noone answered), so I'm guessing the closing was within a month.

It will be interesting to see what goes into that location. Trenholm Plaza has done very well over the last 40 years in remaining viable while other strip malls have gone into decline almost as soon as they opened. (Look, for instance, at Midlands Plaza, which was very similar to Trenholm Plaza in its (brief) heyday).

UPDATE 23 April 2009: First, Tuesday Morning is back on Forest Drive in the old La-Z-Boy store.

And second, Rosso's Italian Restaurant is now open in the old Trenholm Plaza Tuesday Morning storefront. The menu looks promising! (and there's a nice review here)

UPDATE 2 June 2009: Added link to Rosso's review above.

  1. I have no idea who goes to these stores. There's still one over in (what's left of) Cloisters of Whitehall or whatever it's called. I've just always thought it was a weird concept.

  2. I once decided to just walk into this place to see what it was they sell. It was about five minutes to close. The clerk made a big deal about not letting me come in. I hoped at that time they would close and the clerk would loose her job. Any store which turns away browsers deserves closure.

  3. They got all the liquidated stuff from Target, Linens n Things, etc. I shopped there a few times, prices were very reasonable and I didnt care that the employees sucked. I bought my wedding album and invitations there for a deal.

  4. They get items from the larger retailers when those retailers "retire" a line of products. It can be just about anything. I've found Tuesday Morning to be a good place to buy suitcases. High quality and deep discounts.

  5. I've been in Tuesday Mornings a couple of times - - Your phrase "Big Lots by Martha Stewart" was perfect!! I always felt that it was clearance for originally (way!) overpriced goods :-p bleh I have found a few cool items that I would have NEVER paid full price for tho.... but I'm not sorry to see the store go... my Mom & Aunt were upset, but then they love that hoity-toity stuff :-D

  6. I miss Tuesday Morning--it was a stop when I went to Trenholm Plaza. Great prices on glassware and cookware, fancy food items, decorative items (their Christmas decorations were fabulous), garden ornaments and nice glazed pots, paper products, and kid's toys. I found something to buy there every time I went and always got a great deal. It was great for wedding presents and office gifts; you never knew what might be there. I got really great indoor and outdoor timers one time. Most of what was there was high q

  8. The owner of Gervais & Vine will be opening Rosso Trattoria Italia in the former Trenholm Plaza location of Tuesday Morning. "Rosso will feature a seasonal, rustic Italian menu that will be prepared in our stylish open kitchen featuring a wood-burning grill and wood-fired oven." Opening is forecast for November. http://www.rossocolumbia.com/

  9. Shouldn't you start charging for people like Michael who come here to advertise?

  10. It's interesting information; I don't have a problem with it, and I don't think Michael is a shill of any sort -- look at his other comments.

    The new restaurant has been discussed a little under the Holey Dough closing, sparked by this article in The State

  11. My wife loves Tuesday Morning and has missed it greatly since its closing. We saw in the paper today that it's coming back to the current Lazy Boy location a little farther east on Forest Drive.

  12. I believe there is still one on Two Notch Road as well, and one in the Cloisters of Whitehall.

  13. Tuesday morning has be having financial problems right and left. They are looking for funding to stay afloat. The stores are in most part in horrible condition

  14. The one at Spring Valley Commons on Two Notch Road right at New Years while they have a new Lexington location.

    It used to be that they'd be closed for several weeks and then reopen (I can remember them being closed for over a month at a time it seems) back in the 90s. My mom likes Tuesday Morning at Clusters of Whitehall (or St. Andrews Center now).

    The one on Forest Drive is still ticking somehow as is St. Andrews...
