The only time I was ever in a Save A Lot was when I lived in Aiken, and there was one on US-1 heading out of town for I-20. It was the most "off" brands I had seen since they heyday of 'generic' items back in the 1980s. Of course the name brand stuff probably comes from the same factories, and non-Kellog/non-Post rasin bran gets just as soggy as the big guys.
Can anyone identify who was in this building on Harden Street in between the Waffle House and El Burrito?
I thought I had some pictures of it before it was gutted, but I can't locate them right now.
As commenter James R reports, Super Dollar in Sunset Court across from Grecian Gardens has closed shop. This store was the follow-on operation to Fred's which closed in June of 2012. I'm not sure when Super Dollar opened, but I believe the storefront was vacant for a good while.

UPDATE 3 May 2015: Commenter Brandon Brown reports this store as not closed, so I am going with that in the title as an update.
Well, I was unhappy to notice this real estate sign. As I mentioned when they moved, my parents always felt that Bob Andrews dealt with them more fairly and competently than the dealer, and that's usually where we took our cars while I was growing up. Still, a 90+ year run is pretty good by any standard.
I recall seeing an articl in The State about upcoming changes to Landmark Square, and this is one of them: Jeffers-McGill have vacated their Garners Ferry location and have moved to Atlas Road.
UPDATE 28 April 2015 -- Here is a bad picture of the new Atlas Road Location:
This follow-on operation to Bojangles seems to be undergoing some sort of remodeling, which is a little odd since I think a lot of work was done after Bojangles moved out.
In the event, it appears the Decker location is now independant (though seemingly with a similar menu). Feel Goods is the new name.
UPDATE 16 April 2015: Added first two pictures of Nick's in operation.
Well, this was quite a shock! Somehow between the last time I drove Two Notch and tonight (12 April 2015), the Waffle House by the I-20 on-ramp has either been completely gutted or completely knocked down and half rebuilt.
It's hard to tell given the night-badness of the pix, but there is a "now hiring" sign up, so they will be back apparently. In the meantime, as far as I know, the WH up the road at the Trenholm Road Extension terminus is still open.
Well, the signs are trying to spin it as a move, but since the 2708 Rosewood store already exists, I can only call it a closing.
Although it was once a grocery, this building has been a pharmacy for as long as I can remember -- It was an Eckerd's before the Rite Aid buyout of that chain. I have not stopped there for many years, possibly because the last time I did I got agressively pan-handled in the parking lot.
