I did a closing for this Eagle's when it moved from it's old location further down SAR to this spot. Now it appears that they have left Irmo entirely, though they still have stores in the Midlands.
Liberty Tax Service / Danny's Drumming Studio, 946 Harden Street / 944 Harden Street (moved) no comments
I wrote about Liberty Tax Service in this location about five years ago. I believe that by that time Danny's Drumming Studio in the adjacent storefront, had already moved to Leesburg Road though I did not do a post on them for some reason.
Since then, both addresses in this Harden Street building have been gutted, with the interposing walls knocked out and the roof removed. According to this State article from January 2015, the building had already been condemned so the developers had to move fast to do something about it and hope to have something in the spot by Christmas 2015.
Commenter Rick sent this picture of his former business some months ago but I was holding onto it until I could dig up some current-ish pictures of the spot for comparison. I actually did take some, but as so often is the case, I can't lay hands on them right now. The ones I did find are from 2011.
Though I must have driven, or been driven, by this spot hundreds of times through the years, I can honestly say I have no recollection whatsoever of this building. I also have no recollection of Harper's being built despite always thinking of it as a "new" place.
Commenter Rick has recently mentioned that X Records was also located on this corner and also knocked down to build Harper's.

UPDATE 1 June 2015: Changed Gas Station in the post title to Gulf Station based on the comments.
Curiously when I went by Sandler's at Sandhill the other week, there were no closing signs on the store. The billboards were up in several places however. They don't give a date, but I'm guessing the end of May would be a logical time.
It appears this little building on the L'il Cricket lot at the corner of Two Notch & Covenant has changed hands again.
It is now K-Wayzz Corner Grill.
I think the chain may be having troubles in general as google finds a number of closings nationally, and I have also noticed the Surfside location close. I will say that the few times I have tried Qdoba in general (I did not try any of the Columbia stores), I have not been too impressed. In particular, my burrito always fell apart.
I'm not sure whether the architecture of this building is meant to suggest Southwest or Brick Train Station...

LoopNet says this building is mostly one huge open space, which makes sense for an auction hall. R. H. Lee lists here as late as the February 1997 phonebook, but were gone by the February 2005 phonebook, so I'm guessing early 2000s for the closing date. I'm not sure what happened to the front of the building -- whether it's just boarded up, or someone has stripped the exterior for some reason.
