Bobby's Barber Shop, Trenholm Plaza: October 2008 (moved)   13 comments

Posted at 5:55 pm in Uncategorized

I'm happy to report that Bobby's Barber Shop has successfully moved from Trenholm Plaza (in the Hooligan's/UPS wing, which is to be torn down) to Richland Mall, near the second floor entrance to Belks (on the Barnes & Noble side of the mall). Haircuts are still the same price!

  2. Anyone out there remember The Sportsman barber shop on Forest Drive? It was across the street from Zesto's. That building has been heavily remodeled but The Sportsman was right on the end, where Wild Birds Unlimited is now.

    The Sportsman was a big (4 or 5 chairs) busy place, and sort of a male hangout. Old guys would sit around and yak long after the barber was done with them. The tv was always on, there were racy (for the time) magazines, and of course all the sounds and smells of a good old fashioned barber shop. My dad would take me there then we'd go across the street and get a milkshake.

  3. Not as such -- the barbershop at Forest Lake was mine, but I do remember the building. That was the original location of Ambassador Animal Hospital (now accross from The Golden Corral) where our dog, for the first and only time (I think), snapped at and caught a fly out of the air, and where the crusty Vet remonstrated with us kids for laughing at her falling over wooziness after getting anesthesia and having her teeth cleaned.

  4. I thought the building across from Zestos was a hardware store. Well I know it was a hardware store, I thought it occupied the whole building.

  5. There was a hardware store in the middle (Ruff's? The original Richland Mall had a Ruff's Hardware and I think it moved out to this building in the mall's parking lot.) the barber shop on the west end, and a Baskin Robbins on the east end.

  8. Yes, I recall the book store. It was a tiny place, but I bought many "Tom Swift, Jr." books there, and the last 50-cent paperback I ever saw. I think it was called "Chapter 5" or something like that.

    I had totally forgotten the cleaners until you mentioned them, but now I can recall going there several times when our washer was broke.

    We have been talking about the Edisto Dairy store here.

  12. "Reduce the number of words on a page," he said. "Shorten them. Don't waste a lot of words when you're talking to people, get the bottom line because the only thing you really have is time and you can't really replace that. Time and tide wait for no man."

  13. @Jimmy - Your comment 5 May 13 @6:21 pm. If you see this comment, being that it has been so long ago since your post, I have relatives in Hemingway. I do not know how or why I have not seen your post before now.
    My relatives in Hemingway are Farmers and BBQ cooks, and boy do they know how to cook BBQ.
    The relatives I refer to are on my wife's side of the family.
    I don't think they cared much for me the first fifteen years I was married to my wife.
    I would say to them how much I liked their BBQ and that I wished they would tell me how to make it.
    The funny thing is, all five of her uncles would tell me the same thing when I asked, they would say "I can't tell you, I'd have to show you", Funnier than that is they would never show me. I understand it is not something true BBQ cooks are going to divulge.
    Anyway, after 16 years, one of them started taking a liking to me, after I took him to play golf one day, then he showed me. Now I must confess, not only I but, most that try my "Q" agree it's pretty good.
    I'm not spell checking so if ....
