Great China Chinese Restaurant, River Drive: 1990s   2 comments

Posted at 1:27 am in Uncategorized

This hole-in-the-wall Chinese restaurant sat at the apex of River Road & Sunset Drive, just across the street from the old A&P and Edna's Drive-In, sharing a lot with Buck's Sport Shop. I recall the building as being rather small, and parking quite limited (though I never stopped for a first-hand appraisal).

At some point in the 1990s (or possibly the 1980s) the place burned down, and nothing else has ever been built on the lot. There is currently a Great China restaurant in West Columbia on the Charleston Highway -- I don't know if it is related to this one or not.

I find it rather odd that someone cared enough to white over the sign, but not enough to take the sign down.

  2. Signs are pretty expensive to put up and take down, while painting is pretty cheap. I suppose that the original plan may have been to wait for redevelopment then have the new owner change out signage.
