Bi-Lo, 483 Sunset Boulevard: 2006   6 comments

Posted at 12:07 am in Uncategorized





As nearly as I can tell, this Bi-Lo closed in 2006, leaving Capitol Square without an anchor store.

The space is now Habitat For Humanity's ReStore. I believe the closest Bi-Lo to this spot is now the one on US-1 near the Wal-Mart.

  1. I fairly sure this Bi-Lo was gone before 2006.

    I remember this having a place called FoodSmart sometime around 2003/04 and my grandmother and I went there. It was a short lived place that seemed to sell Bi-Lo branded products (almost an 'overstock' concept).

    It sat vacant before Habitat for Humanity ReStore came along and I've taken a couple of pairs of shoes there to be recycled as they had a receptacle for them.

  2. The Bi-Lo in Parkland Plaza is closer than the one near Walmart.

    Andrew's right, the Bi-Lo has been closed a long time. For some reason, I'm thinking it closed within a year or so of 1998. Probably closed it when the Winn Dixie at Parkland Plaza became a BiLo.

  3. I've only been to this shopping center once in my life. In 1982, there was a locally owned pizza joint in one of the units called "Papa Joe's." He had a 'pizza challenge' that if you could eat one of his 12-inch pizzas, you didn't have to pay for it. I and a friend took him up on the challenge. Yeah, I lost, and it wasn't a pretty sight.

  4. I think it closed before Winn Dixie at Parkland Plaza became a Bi-Lo. Winn Dixie became Bi-Lo in 2005 when Winn Dixie pulled out of the Carolinas as part of a company reorganization following a bankruptcy filing that year and the FoodSmart was gone by that point as I recall...

  5. @Andrew, etc -- All I can say is that it is listed in the Feb 2005 phonebook, but not in the Feb 2007 one, which is why I picked "2006".

    And, yes, I had forgotten the Parkland Plaza grocery is a Bi-Lo now.
