As you can see from these two sets of pictures, the Circle K at the corner of Two Notch Road & the Trenholm Road Extension is closed, the pumps have been demolished, and apparently the storage tanks have been dug up, or that is the next step.

The store here was much smaller than the current Circle K style, and to me the lot does not look big enough to put in one on their new standard lines. In the case of a similar situation on Bethel Church, they removed the pumps and tanks and then put the building on the market. I expect they will do the same here, unless they go as far as razing the building entirely.

  1. When it first opened in the 1990s(?) it was branded as a BP gas station.

  2. One thing that hotels and gas stations have in mind (after Tom mentioned the original branding of this one) is that both have a tendency to change branding periodically (and this is one such example)...some examples I remember:

    - Most Circle Ks were 76 branded at one point before (mostly) shifting to Shell
    - Most Kangaroo Express locations became Circle K when Circle K bought out most of the Kangaroo Express brand
    - What is now Doubletree by Hilton on Bush River Road used to be Radisson and prior to that Sheraton
    - The former Clarion Hotel on Gervais Street is now a Hilton Garden Inn
    - at Broad River & I-20 what used to be Kent's Korner is now Circle K
    - On Piney Grove Road there is a hotel that used to be Microtel that is now Super 8

    There are many other examples that are out there but these are the ones that came to mind as I pondered Tom's indication that this one used to be BP.
