Rite Aid / Eckerd Drugs, 3000 Two Notch Road   12 comments

Posted at 2:35 am in closing

Here's another closed Eckerd store, although google indicates that this one was open as recently as the Rite Aid transition, which is not how I recall it. This store sits at the intersection of Two Notch and Beltline, and is now a children's dental clinic.

I'm pretty sure this location also once housed the local AMC dealership, name now forgotten, where I bought a really awful, I mean world class bad, car, though all those structures have since been torn down (or if they were like the car, may have just fallen apart..)

UPDATE 25 January 2012 -- Interestingly, the building directly across the street (in the old Payless Shoes/Carzzz location) is also becoming a dental clinic.

UPDATE 10 August 2020: Add tags, map icon, change "Eckerd" to "Eckerd Drugs" & "Rite Aid Drugs" to "Rite Aid" in post title.

UPDATE 17 November 2022: Changed title from "Eckerd Drugs / Rite Aid" to "Rite Aid / Eckerd Drugs" based on the comments.

  1. The AMC dealer was called Palmetto/American then later just Palmetto/AMC. Afterwards it became Heritage Lincoln-Mercury, and later moved to Graystone.

  2. The Eckerd/Rite Aid conversion was in the past year or two. This "dental clinic" has been there since 2002.

  3. Yeah, that's why I said "which is not how I recall it".

    I don't remember seeing any Rite-Aids in Columbia (after they left the area long ago) until they bought Eckerd, but I kept getting links like this when I googled "3000 Two Notch" -- all Rite Aid and no Eckerd..

  4. This definitely opened as a Rite Aid. It looks like an early 90s Rite Aid build.

  5. There's an ad for the AMC dealership in the WIS-TV 1975 news Youtube compilationsonline - it includes lots of ads and Joe Pinner spots, esp. in Pt. 2 of the clips!

    Pt1 is:

  6. The ad for the dealership is in Part 2 at 02:38... Check out the new 76 Gremlin! It was at 3010 Two Notch, Two Notch & Beltline, so that seems right..

  8. Dave, thanks for those!

    Great stuff, raising once again the eternal question:

    "The 70s: What the heck were we thinking!?"

  10. Please Fix the Title to Say: Rite Aid / Eckerd Drugs instead of Eckerd Drugs / Rite Aid

  11. Since The Dentist Clinic Has Been There Before the Merger

  12. And The Building Was a Mid-1990s Build
