I was not really aware of this restaurant as I go out that way so seldom. Apparently it was rather new, and started just in time to be hit by the pandemic. It probably didn't help either that a San Jose was just around one corner, and El Charro around the other.

According to their Facebook they do still have a location in Swansea.

I believe the only time I ever visited this bank was to use the ATM some years ago. I had not even noticed that it was closed & razed until commenter Andrew pointed it out. For now you can see the old building in this LoopNet listing. I took these pictures a week or two ago, and the last time I drove by, construction on the lot had started.

UPDATE 26 January 2023 -- Murphy Express is open:

Pro Bowl Motors / Capital City Rides, 1231 Broad River Road: June 2022 (Moved)   1 comment

Driving by this site the other night, I noticed that Capital City Rides has relocated. This site originally featured here as Payless Car Sales, and I see on that post that after that it was Pro Bowl Motors which also seems to have closed at some point.

Interestingly, I cannot figure out just from online references to where Capital City has moved. I should have gotten out of the car and read the door signs, but I figured since their marquee sign had a website, the info would be there. In the event, it's not, and not on their Facebook page either.

If you look closely at the first picture, you can, barely, see the Fuji Cafe signage still on the marquee of Suite G at Kennerly Crossing back in September of 2018. As nearly as I can tell from the Google reviews, it closed around 2019, and the suite is still empty.

Leitner's Sewing Center, 1625 Broad River Road: 2016   1 comment

This is one of the times it would be nice if the AT&T still deigned to give me a phonebook yearly as I have no real idea when this place closed. The latest Yelp reviews are all quite old, but I can't believe the actual closing date is that long ago, so I am going to punt and say 2021 until I hear otherwise.

At any rate, this Boozer Shopping Center storefont was a sewing machine sales and service operation and had apparently been there for quite a while.

UPDATE 26 February 2022: Commenter Gypsie found evidence that this place probably closed in 2016, so I am updating the closing date in the title to that.

First Credit 1597 Broad River Road: 2021   no comments

I noticed on a recent drive-through of Boozer Shopping Center that First Credit on the north side of the plaza is vacant. I can't really find any information on it, but I'm guessing that I went by that storefront a number of times in 2021 without noticing a vacancy, so I will tentatively place it in that year.

The last closing I did for this location was in 2012 when it ceast to be Discount Furniture. I'm not sure when Green Dot moved in, but they apprently moved out in late 2021 as reported by commenter Gypsie. It looks like they are a small Carolinas chain, and still have offices in the Charleston area and Wilmington.

Commenter Tom mentioned that this Irmo Corner Pantry Exxon at the I-26 Peak exit had been torn down for the ongoing road work in the area. By the time I got to the area, there was really nothing left to see, but you can view the old building at this LoopNet listing and by clicking through to old images in Google Streetview.

Midlands Mazda Showroom, 655 Broad River Road: September 2021   1 comment

p1730807_tn.jpg

Commenter Gypsie mentioned that this place was being razed. As far as I can tell, it is just the showroom, shown in the main pictures here, and the rest of the dealership remains in business (although at some point the name changed to Mazda Of Columbia. I'm not sure what the issue with the showroom was. I never paid it too much attention driving by, but it looks to have been an attractive building.
