Reyner's Jewelers / Colonial Finance Loans & Tax Service, 1604 Main Street: 29 August 2011 (moved)   5 comments

Posted at 2:28 am in business

Here's a nice little Main Street storefront that was a jewelers at one time -- notice the "display case" window on the right front side.

Colonial Finance was the last operation there, and apparently decamped to the Bi-Lo strip mall on Devine Street at the end of August 2011. I got the name Reyner's Jewelers from a 1948 Columbia Bible College yearbook which is on line for keywords, but which I can't really see without joining a yearbook site. However, notice that you can still see part of the name in the flooring in one of the pictures.

The building as a whole (not just this storefront) is apparently the "Berry Building", the site of the old Berry's On Main.

UPDATE 2 February 2012 -- Here is Colonial Finance's Devine Street location:

  1. According to Historic Columbia's Main Street brochure, this building is called the Manson building and was built in 1911 and modified in the 1940s, 60s and 80s.

  3. For some reason, it won't let me upload the link to the WLTX story confirming this...but the Chick-Fil-A on Main Street will close on Feb. 25 due to the fact that they were unable to reach a leasing agreement with the landlord
