The Shopping Bin, 1501B Broad River Road: Early 2015   1 comment

Posted at 11:09 pm in closing


Judging by their Facebook page, the last time I can verify this Boozer Shopping Center storefront as being open was 11 December 2014.

Laptops For Less, 652 Bush River Road: Spring 2015 (moved)   6 comments

Posted at 1:20 am in closing


This vacant storefront is in the small strip on Bush River behind Captain D's. It appears that this computer repair operation has moved down the street to the Wal-Mart plaza, and into the old Radio Shack location:

Scrubs In Motion, 652-H Bush River Road: circa 2010   no comments

Posted at 12:51 am in closing


According to Mapquest:

Scrubs In Motion, serving the Greenville area, offers clothing and shoes for people in the health care industry. This family-owned and operated business has been serving the community since 2004. Scrubs In Motion is owned and operated by a professional nurse.

Interestingly, this South Carolina operation once had a store as far afield as Tempe Az. It appears all are now closed.

Shoe Repair Express, 1531 Broad River Road: 2015   5 comments

This Boozer Shopping Center storefront lists in the February 2015-2016 phonebook, so I'm guessing is closed sometime this spring. And, no, they weren't responsible for the Patient Rarking -- I think there's a medical operation in the same wing.

The Outlet Store, 1569A Broad River Road: 2013   no comments

I'm not entirely sure what the focus of The Outlet Store in Boozer Shopping Center was. Given the embroidery and printing aspects, I guess they did custom clothes and perhaps uniforms, though I'm not sure exactly how outlet fit into it.

They listed in the February 2013-2014 phonebook, but not the February 2014-2015 one, so I'm guessing they closed in 2013.

Cycle Performance, 602 Bush River Road: 2010s   8 comments

This former motorcycle shop is just down from the old Shoney's on Bush River. I'm not quite sure when it closed because for some reason I can't find it in my phonebooks. There are two calendars behind the counter, but I neglected to zoom in on them..

Radio Shack, 1318 Bush River Road Suite D3: Spring 2015   2 comments

Posted at 12:25 am in Uncategorized



Here is the Radio Shack in the Wal Mart complex at the old Bush River Mall site.

I see this storefront has already attracted another business: Laptops For Less. It's a little odd that the Radio Shack marquee is still up there. Usually a chain which is still in some form of existence wants their logo off of former locations. And there *are* still some open stores though the present continued existence of RS as an entity is pretty tenuous at the moment.

Hook 'n Needle, 1571 Broad River Road: 2013   no comments

Posted at 3:45 am in Uncategorized




Hook 'n Needle was one of the last shops to move out of Intersection Center, leaving its original location for Boozer Shopping Center in 2011.

Commenter Andrew reports that the place closed in that location late in 2013 or early in 2014 and that the owner sadly passed away shortly thereafter.

(Hat tip to commenter Andrew)

Thrifty Mart / Food Town / Food Lion / Discount Books / Spherion / Call Center, 1313 Bush River Road: 1990s etc   1 comment

Posted at 1:11 am in Uncategorized


I've posted this building before, but for a store which was actually in Boozer Shopping Center. Now that the building has been completely remodeled and is open as Auto Zone, I'm taking the opportunity to make a post which more correctly describes its history.

You can look at the comments on this post (which I need to totally revamp and correct) for some of that history, and this article describes the sale of the property to Auto Zone and mentions the call center tenant (which was not Spherion, which commenter Adder tags as a temp contractor).
