Normally, I would split these two businesses up, but the building is so small they're both going to be in the pictures anyway.

At any rate, this little building on Saint Andrews Road is just in front of the old Cussin' Bill's, and under the hill from Fred's and National Mail Services.

I like the vintage Gull Wing style of the cleaning portion, and I'm not sure why they didn't just do the whole building that way.

It appears that Alabaster moved to Broad River Road around 2009, and Crown closed around 2010. I did not see any indication that the building is for sale, and apparently the Fire Marshall thinks someone may try to refit it, so we'll see what happens there.

UPDATE 12 July 2016 -- Now Best Catch Seafood Market:

  1. I never paid much attention to that little building. But from the looks of it, it's a prime candidate for razing. Not sure what that tiny lot would be good for. Especially since it's surrounded by embankments and drop-offs.

  2. Looks like the fuel oil tank might have had a leak.

  3. I remember this as a One-Hour Martinizing cleaners back in the early 70s.

  4. No wonder the building is in such bad shape.

  5. @Jason H I was going to say I think I remember a Kleen Kare cleaners back in the early 80s in West Columbia with this same building, so maybe it was that.

  6. @TahoeChic - you may be right. That name does sound familiar.

  8. Folks, this building is undergoing some aesthetic work (painting and other stuff along those lines) that will most likely result in a new occupant (will advise if I hear further)...

  9. For a while now (I think comments relating to this might have gotten lost in a database crash around the time of the October 2015 flood) this has been Best Catch Seafood market and some dry cleaner has the portion on the far right...
