We go back to Saint Andrews Center for this closing. While I was leaving the plaza after taking the pictures of Tuesday Morning I noticed that this branch bank was vacant. As it turns out, this has been the case for quite a while (almost two years), as TD Bank decamped for 4320 Sunset Boulevard on 31 July 2015.

Bank of America, 7373 Two Notch Road: Spring 2017   no comments

I've always thought it odd that there were two Bank of America locations on Two Notch so close to each other. This one is on the west side of O'Neil Court, and the other is at 7405 on the east side of O'Neil Court (and in the Lowe's parking lot).

Apparently they have recently regularized the situation by closing this one down, with the exception of ATM service. It's not clear to me if two ATMs will remain on the lot. The day I noticed that the drive-through lanes were closed and took these pictures, something was going on at the "back" ATM and access to its drive-up lane was blocked though the machine appeared to be running.

The lot itself is fairly big, and opens on both Two Notch and O'Neil Court -- I can't imagine that they plan to leave it vacant with just ATM(s) for long. I expect they will put it on the market at some point.

I was at Sandhill the other day and noticed that this Regions Bank on the outer perimeter was closed.

I see a google review from four months ago indicating it was already closed then, so I'm putting the date as January 2017 though that may be after the actual date. I've always thought Regions Bank was an odd name. It was especially odd when BOA was still Nations Bank because then it sounded kind of copycat. Now it just seems nonspecific.

UPDATE 26 June 2017 -- As reported in the comments, almost open again as a Navy Federal Credit Union:

You will have noticed the upgrades to the various First Citizens branches around town. In this case I actually think I like the new branding better than the old, which is definitely not always a given.

Well, after mailing out the flyers in May, the Richland Mall Bank Of America is finally closed. As you'll recall, they closed the drive-through in March 2015 at which point the writing was probably on the wall.

I don't know why, but I had it in my mind that the ATM would remain, though in the event that turns out not to be the case. At any rate, I believe that Trenholm Plaza is now the only Forest Acres BOA location.

NBSC / South Carolina Community Bank, 4103 West Beltline Boulevard: 2016   3 comments

This branch of South Carolina Community Bank was in front of Piggly Wiggly in Edens Plaza on Beltline.

At one time there was also another Columbia branch on Sumter Street, but at this point it looks like the bank is down to one location, in Sumter (the town, not the street).

UPDATE 10 June 2016 -- Not sure where I got my (incorrect) location info, but commenter Andrew has confirmed the one branch is on Sumter Street. Probably the link I was looking at was confusing the town and street. Also, here's a bit more from The Post & Courier on the bank's troubles. And finally, commenter Tom says this building was an NBSC before SCCB.

UPDATE 16 July 2016 -- I went around back of the building, and they must still own it because the ATM is still active:

Bank Of America Drive-Through, 2095 Beltline Boulevard: Late February 2015   2 comments

I noticed the other week something going on at the Richland Mall Bank Of America, with a dumpster pulled up to the drive-through. This week it is apparent that the drive-through has been closed. I guess it was a bit awkward having an unconnected outbuilding for the tellers, and perhaps even a security issue. At any rate, I believe the Trenholm Plaza branch is now the next closest drive-through.

My first thought at seeing this former First Citizens branch at the corner of the Charleston Highway and Platt Springs Road was that there must be some sort of sporting event in the area as the lot was packed full of cars taking advantage of the Sunday bank closure to park there.

A closer inspection revealed the actual facts, which are that the bank is gone, and the lot is being used as an impromptu (I could see no business sign at least..) used car lot. I've heard the old GM described as a bank that sold some cars, perhaps the concept is spreading...

Capital Bank, 4840 Forest Drive: September 2012 (open, but remodeling)   no comments

I noticed while at Starbucks the other night that the one of Trenholm Plaza's three banks, Capital Bank, while remainging open, is doing major remodeling.

I believe that Capital Bank is a fairly new name for this building, which has been a number of different banks over the years.
