As mentioned by commenter Andrew, Tripp's Fine Cleaners have closed their Saint Andrews Road location. Looking at their sign, I think the closest next location to here is probably the old Piggly Wiggly location on Lake Murray Boulevard.

I'm not really sure when this Enterprise moved to 2638 Two Notch, but at any rate, I just noticed it, so I'm going to start by tagging it Early 2019. Despite the fact that a cousin briefly worked for the chain, I've never rented from Enterprise, though the car-delivery thing goes sound nice.

The first shots are from May 2015. I mostly took them for the clouds, but figured they might come in handy someday.

The last time I was at Sandhill, this frame shop in the Bi-Lo wing, was planning to work through the holidays and close at the end of the year. With H. Rubin and Rita's, there are now a number of vacancies on this side.

Camp Bow Wow, 1916 Taylor Street: 2019 (Moved)   1 comment

I first noticed that the Camp Bow Wow dog boarding & play center was selling their building on Taylor just a bit past Harden several years ago, but apparently at the time they did not find a satisfactory buyer, as the For Sale signs came down. Recently, I noticed that the "Camp Bow Wow" signage was down, and that they have relocated to 655 Superior Street.

If I find the pictures with the signage still up, I will post them. In the meanwhile, if the building did sell, there is currently no indication as to what is coming in.

Liberty Income Tax, 599 Saint Andrews Road: 2015 (Moved)   3 comments

You can see why this office might want to move: being co-located with a departed convenience store of some kind is not ideal. Looking up the phone number, it appears they are now at 2700 Broad River Road, which is the plaza across the street from Rush's.

Lexington Dry Cleaning, 1340 Elmwood Avenue: 2019   2 comments

I'm not sure exactly when this location of Lexington Dry Cleaning, at the corner of Elmwood & Marion, closed, but it was definitely earlier than the Sesqui location, so I'm going to say 2018. As you can see, it has been vacant long enough for a political advocacy organization to move in.

UPDATE 18 November 2019: Changing the closing date from 2018 to 2019 based on the comments.

Lexington Dry Cleaning, 9557 Two Notch Road Suite A: 25 October (Moved)   2 comments

Lexington Dry Cleaning on Two Notch near Sesqui is moving, or consolidating, to Blythewood, leaving a vacancy in Sesqui Center. I find it interesting from their heads-up sign that they do a lot of their business by delivery now. I guess in the age of Amazon Prime, Grubhub and home grocery delivery that makes sense.

Carolina Window & Millwork LLC, 1917 Laurel Street: 2014   no comments

I was going through some old pictures and noticed that I never did a closing for Carolina Window & Millwork on Laurel Street. I don't actually know anything about the place other than Google suggests it was an auto glass place (although, just from the name that sounds wrong..), and that the storefront is now Distinctive Surfaces kitchen and bath store.

They listed in the February 2014 phonebook, but not the February 2015 one, so I'm putting the closing date as 2014.

K-9 Coature, 626 Meeting Street: 29 April 2019 (Moved)   no comments

K-9 Coature is a dog grooming business that moved into this building following the the closure of Conumdrum in late 2015. I noticed today when I drove by that the the building was empty again (and that the facade is undergoing work).

It turns out that K9-Coature outgrew the space and has moved down the street to 832 Meeting Street in late April.

As far as I can tell, this space is not on the market. I don't know if that means that something is already lined up, or if they want to work more on the building or what.

Tres Bien Hair Salon, 714 Beltline Boulevard: 2016   no comments

I have had my eye on this building, just past Maurice's, for years, as despite there having been a number of businesses in it, I never saw that any of them were ever open. Or at least that's how it appeared to me.

I have more pictures somewhere, and when they turn up, I will post them.

At any rate, it appears that after Tres Bien left, the place got a major facelift, though it does not as yet seem to be leased.

UPDATE 7 June 2019 -- Here are some (not all) of the additional pictures I mentioned. These date from 13 March 2016, so I am changing the date in the post title from "2018" to "2016".

UPDATE 10 July 2019 -- Interesting, Here's what's not coming to this spot:

The owner of a Mauldin massage parlor has withdrawn her request to open one near downtown Columbia.

Yuzhen Zhu had applied with the Columbia Board of Zoning Appeals for a special exception to permit a massage parlor on Beltline Boulevard near Devine Street. The U-Relax Massage parlor would have been located next door to Maurice’s barbecue at 714 N. Beltline Blvd.

City Council member Moe Baddourah said city staff told him the request has been withdrawn permanently.
