Here's another set of pictures from commenter Homer, who says:

Here are some pictures of the old location of Chickadee's Diner, 7949
Broad River Rd in Irmo (Bi-Lo Shopping Center). I'm not sure when they
closed but they moved to the location that corresponds to the closings
entry for BJ's Cafe at 1729 Marshall St.

You can see the setting up for the Marshall Street location here at the Sunset Grill & Pizza closing. Since I took those shots, Chickadees has opened for business there.

Carolina Title Loan, 1929 Broad River Road: Winter 2016   2 comments

This former Pizza Hut in front of Intersection Center had been a title loan operation at least since 2012 and is now again vacant.

Since these old Pizza Hut buildings are so distinctive, I guess you have to decide whether people referring to you as "that place in the old Pizza Hut" as a plus or a minus..

Cheap Chuck's Tire / Buy & Save Tire Center, 2420 Broad River Road: 2016   7 comments

I noticed that this tire center on Broad River Road was vacant last time I drove by. For now you can see a good picture of it in operation as Buy & Save in Google Street View here.

The sign proclaims that it will soon be another tire operation: Tires & Beyond. Beyond *what* I'm not sure.

Fields Home Fashions, 1565 Broad River Road: 2014   1 comment

The marquee says Fields Home Fashion Center but the phonebook and internet suggest Fields Home Fashions as the formal name. At any rate this storefront is on the Dutch Square side of Boozer Shopping Center, to the right of Manifest and Dollar General. From what little I can find, this was a decor store, with a specialty in window treatments.

La Fogata Mexican Restaurant, 4545 Broad River Road: 2015   no comments

This much restauranted building, the home of the original Lizard's Thicket, is vacant again.

I'm not sure exactly when this happened as even when I'm pretty sure it was still in operation, it never seemed be be open when I drove by. Interestingly, this is the second time it has been, and has ceased being, a La Fogata. (Although this incarnation was apparently a buffet).

The postings on the Facebook page for this Boozer Shopping Center consignment shop suggest it closed in early 2015.

This particular storefront was previously the Boozer location of Dem's House of Diamonds, now on Lake Murray Boulevard.

Tripp's Fine Cleaners, 1339 Broad River Road: Early 2016 (open again)   no comments

Oddly, this is the second location of Tripp's Fine Cleaners to be affected by fire in recent years. You will recall that they were also caught in the Spring Valley Commons fire of 14 October 2013. Hopefully, this location will be able to rebuild more quickly than the Two Notch location.

UPDATE 30 August 2016 -- Grand re-opening is now scheduled for 12 September 2016:

Heroes & Dragons, 501 Bush River Road: 23 January 2016 (moved)   5 comments

Great Ceasar's Ghost!, I was sure I had done a closing for comic store Heroes & Dragons when they moved from their Boozer Shopping Center location next to Manifest and down the hill to 501 Bush River Road, but apparently not as it's not in Alphabetical Closings and google has no record of it. Maybe I just remember taking some pictures of it. At any rate, that's what they did, and now they have come almost full circle, moving back to Boozer, albeit not to exactly the same spot (which is now Dollar General).

Where they are moving to is the old Nutrition Warehouse spot I mentioned a few days ago.

Nutrition Warehouse, 1621 Broad River Road: Fall 2015 (moved)   no comments

Well, I noticed driving down Colonial Life Boulevard the other day that Nutrition Warehouse has moved again.

I had mentioned some time ago that they had moved from one side of Boozer Shopping Center to the other, but now they have moved out of that strip entirely and across Bush River Road to the old Sounds Familiar location at 422 Bush River Road #4 (this lot actually fronts onto Colonial Life Boulevard, but that is not the official address):

I admit I'm not a big supplement customer, but I have shipped a number of items at the Forest Drive location, and their contract Post Office is quite efficient.

Touchdown's opened in a former Sammi's Deli sometime around October 2013. I'm not a big wing fan, and it's nowhere near where I live so I never made it in. I noticed last weekend as I was drive by that it was closed and had been relaced by a pizza operation:
