Hot Rock Massages, 120 Sparkleberry Crossing Suites 5 & 6: Early April 2011   1 comment

Posted at 1:15 am in Uncategorized

This upscale massage chain had several storefronts in Columbia which, as reported by commenter Jimmy, all went belly-up by early April. This one is at the corner of Clemson Road & Sparkleberry lane, on the upper level of the same building which also housed Za's, Cafe Corner Coffee and Vino 100.

I would guess these places are a casualty of the fact that massage (unless for an actual medical condition) is something of a luxury good, and is a hard to justify expense in a down economy. On the other hand, there certainly are local massage studios that still seem to be doing well.

(Hat tip to commenter Jimmy)

UPDATE 23 May 2011 -- Added night picture of lighted sign, which is still (so far) up and working.

  1. I read that the first time as "Hard Rock Massages" -- and pictured a massage given while the likes of Van Halen played in the background--not very relaxing.
