Floor It Now, 7740 Broad River Road: May 2011   3 comments

Posted at 10:42 pm in stores

I did a closing for the Two Notch Road Floor It Now back in early 2009. Now the other local location, in or near Irmo, is closing as well. This one is on Broad River Road just past exit 101B on I-26 and not far from Friarsgate Plaza and the former Tez's / Monterrey.

I suspect that the housing market and the economy in general played a big part in both of these closings. If you're buying a house, you may want to redo the flooring or carpet, or if you're flush, you may decide one morning that that old carpet just has to go. If nobody is buying houses, or decides that old rug can stay down a few more years, then flooring stores are going to take a hit.

Or it could be the shag.

UPDATE 16 July 2013: This is now Main Street Home whose owners provide this picture of the new store in the comments:

  1. I noticed work being done here today which has me wondering if this is where Consignment 1st is moving...

  3. Andrew is correct. I own Main Street Home -- formerly Consignment 1st. We moved because the property owner in Harbison decided to sell the property. We changed our name because so many customers said "consignment" implied "all used" to them -- which we are not.
    We wanted to make a permanent commitment to our customers in the Midlands, so we bought and renovated the old Floor It Now building as our new home. Trying to turn Columbia Closings into Columbia Re-Investments.

    Here's a pic of how the building looks now. http://static.squarespace.com/static/51131961e4b064b9ab645b18/t/51d0dfdce4b08819bd7f5b9a/1372643294026/storefront_rightangle.jpg?format=750w
