The Nine Columbia Leasing Office, 622 Harden Street: 2021   no comments

Posted at 11:02 pm in closing




It appears this storefront, once home to Sylvan & DuBose Jewelers was the leasing office for student housing complex The Nine Columbia sometime after the jewelers left and before Febuary 2022 (judging by Google Streetview). The marquee was still up at least until January 2023, but has now been taken down.

I was not really aware of The Nine, but apparently it is at 1400 Huger and part of the radical increase of off-campus student housing which has sprung up over the last few years. I was a bit curious to see that the reviews are very much mixed.

Sylvan & DuBose Jewelers, 622 Harden Street: December 2019   no comments

Posted at 11:06 pm in closing



I didn't have time to stop and get good shots, but longtime Five Points staple, Sylvan & DuBose is closing. The State has the story:

Sylvan & DuBose Jewelers in Five Points is closing after nearly a century in business.

Owner Bruce DuBose is retiring., and his children, Matthew and Laura, who are the fifth generation to work at the store, don’t want to take over the business, he said.

“”I’m old,” DuBose, 68, said with a laugh. “I’m tired. I don’t want to do it anymore.”

The store at 622 Harden St. will close at the end of the year, he said.

I only go to jewelers when I have wristwatch issues, so I don't think I've ever been in this store, but I've certainly been aware of the name for my entire life. It will be interesting to see what is next here. Apparently the family owns the building, and will nix a bar as the follow-on operation.

Currently, the closing sale is ongoing.
