If you look at the right of the first picture above, you can (barely) see Palmetto Beauty & Wigs in operation back in June 2013. Looking at their Facebook page it seems that they carried on for about another year, closing on 27 June 2014, which would mean this slot in Irmo's Quail Valley Plaza has been vacant for about a year and a half.
I noticed this little dojo on Meeting Street back in October when I was checkout out Conumdrum. It looks like maybe the name changed to simply Columbia School of Karate for a while, but the last phonebook listing is in the 2013 book.
Well, I'm sure longtime readers have been wondering when this was coming, but consider how lonely your wall will be when you have to take down the 2015 calendar. Why not keep your wall happy with a brand spanking new 2016 Pawleys Island calendar? Happy walls make a happy house.
This year, we have a brand new set of Island images in either 11" x 8.5":
Or large 14.25" x 11":
And don't forget all of the other calendar designs are still available as well!
This storefront, co-located with a convenience store, was orginally Kotas Sandwiches. After that closed, the place re-opened for a while as Kotas Your Way!.
It appears from the signage, and the food truck parked in the lot that the new owners have closed the storefront and now concentrate on catering chiken & pizza from two food trucks.
