Waxing The City, 4711 Forest Drive Suite 9: November 2023   no comments

Posted at 11:48 pm in closing




I did a closing for the Harbison location earlier this month, and I suspect the Forest Acres location closed at the same time.

Unlike that one, the suite here in the Forest Park plaza (though that name seems to be de-emphasised since Lowes moved in..) has already been repurposed by what looks to be a New Age therapy salon: Integrative Roots Medicine.

Waxing The City, 1150 Bower Parkway: 11 November 2023   3 comments

Commenter Ellen reported this Harbison salon to be closing on 11 November 2023, and it is definitely closed. I do see some google reviews from after that date, so I'm not sure if it ended up staying open longer, or people were just tardy in sharing their thoughts.

Looking at their Facebook, it appears that at least some of the staff are continuing on at other venues.

Beauty Plus, 2105 Decker Boulevard: December 2023   2 comments

Posted at 10:04 pm in closing


I noticed that this beauty supply store in one of the many small strip malls on Decker last month was posting a closing sign. I don't know anything about it, but the building is one of those designs you don't see anymore.

Kim's Beauty Supply, 2526 Forest Drive: 2022   1 comment

I'm a little unclear about whether Kim's ever actually operated in this space once used by Hanna Beauty Supply. For certain, they put their name on the marquee over the Hanna name, and it seems that for several months I saw a lot of cleanup and construction activity in the space, but I'm not sure I ever saw it open.

There is currently a permit on the door for more work, but the only name I saw was for the company doing the work, so I don't know if Kim's is still involved, or if it will be a new operation here.

UPDATE 12 June 2024 -- Now Rib City, the "MaMa Slappin' Good" barbecue place:

Hanna Beauty Supply, 2526 Forest Drive: 2021   no comments

Posted at 10:48 pm in closing



As far as I can tell, Hanna Beauty Supply was open into 2021. I don't know if there was a change of ownership in the property, but the adjacent Forest Drive Market closed somewhere in the same timeframe.

At any rate, the place is now setting up to be a Kim's Beauty Supply, so perhaps it was just a matter of Kim's buying them out.

UPDATE 14 March 2023: Correct the name from "Hannah" to "Hanna", update tags.

Sally Beauty Supply, 2720 Decker Boulevard Suite B: August 2021   no comments

Posted at 10:00 pm in closing



Sally Beauty Supply in Fashion Place on Decker has closed. One google review of the place suggested that it was moving to "Garner", which I would take to be Garners Ferry, but I did not see any sign on the door, nor any listing on the company website

However, I do note that the Two Notch location at Sparkleberry Square is still in business.

Tic Toc Candy Shop / Get Your Gear On / Sunrise Artisan Bath and Body, 730 Santee Avenue: 2019 (Moved)   no comments

Posted at 12:11 am in closing






This little storefront across from the former Yesterday's on Santee Avenue has been a number of things over the years. Most recently, it was Sunrise Artisan Bath and Body, until they moved into the old Portfolio Art Gallery space on Saluda back in early 2019.

Here is The State story on that move.

Gold Beauty Supply, 1531-B Broad River Road: early 2012   no comments

This storefront on the Dunkin' Donut side of Boozer Shopping Center apparently came and went pretty quickly. It is listed in the February 2012 phonebook, but not the February 2011 one.

I like the (improbably long necked) logo.

Salon 2000, 1303 Frink Street: mid-2000s   5 comments

Posted at 11:34 pm in Uncategorized

Here's a nice square little brick building at the corner of Frink and James Streets in Cayce. You can read the sign on the door if you click through to the high-res version, but the gist is that this beauty shop moved to 1816 Frink Street. Now, I find Salon 2000 listed at 1816 Frink in the February 2007 phonebook (one of those I have without going to the library), but not afterwards, so a) I guess this place could have moved any time before that, and b) apparently it did not last too long there. (There is also a Salon 2000 currently listed in Forest Acres, but since they were both listed in the Feb 2007 book, I don't think they are the same).

Notice the nice graphic of the lady's head in the last picture. The one you are probably looking at is actually a shadow cast by the one painted onto the window. It's a nice effect:

Update 25 November 2012 -- As mentioned in the comments, the windows are now boarded up:

Kim's Beauty & Variety, 3922 West Beltline Boulevard: early 2009   1 comment

I've never really been in the market for a wig, but I have noticed this store on Beltline between Two Notch and Farrow off and on over the years. The name never really registered with me, but this time when I saw it closed, I finally made the connection with the store which took over the Two Notch location of Floor It Now -- I'm pretty sure it moved from here to there.

Guess you could say it flipped its wig..

UPDATE 27 Feb 2013 -- It's now One Love convenience store:
