Corked, 661-3 Promenade Place (Village at Sandhill): Late October 2010   4 comments

Posted at 12:43 am in Uncategorized

Corked at Sandhill is out of business. Their web site is still up and announces the closing, though it doesn't list the actual final day. I have no idea of Corked's circumstances, but it seems to me that, in general, Sandhill would be a poor place for a beer and wine shop in that it's not near home, or on the way home, or easy to get into and out of if it is on your way home. I would think 9 times out of 10, it would just be easier to stop by a grocery store -- Sandhill is a shopping destination, not somewhere to zip into and out of.

  1. Too bad ... Sandhills never got any businesses to locate near them by Belk, so their foot traffic had to be near zero.

  2. The loss of Corked is truly a shame. They had the best wine selection in Columbia, a wide range of prices to chose from, and the proprietor was friendly and excellent at recommending wines! Once again, Columbia proves it can't hold a candle-- or even a matchstick-- to Charleston in the culinary arts.

    I'll also agree with commentator Mike that the Belk end of Sandhills took far too long to populate with retail and is still not fully leased.

  3. A small wine selection, not well priced, and an owner who didn't really know much.
