As mentioned by commenter Andrew, here is another McDonald's undergoing upfit to the new style. This one is on the Charleston Highway adjacent to the recently closed Church's Chicken. The setup with two signs seems a little unusual to me, but perhaps I just haven't been paying attention.

$2.49 / $2.79 Dry Cleaners, 904 Knox Abbot Drive: 2016 (moved)   2 comments

I first knew this storefront as Silver City Comics back when I was in college in the 80s. I know they were there as late as 1997, so I'm not sure when $2.49 moved in, but it's been a good number of years. I noticed the other week that they are gone and the place is now a Latin (but apparently not Mexican) restaurant.

UPDATE 6 April 2017 -- Hmm apparently I did this post and it was one of the ones that vanished in the database crash. I see it in the wayback machine, and will try to bring in those pictures later. I also see there that they moved from "$2.49" to "$2.79" before moving, so I'm updaing the post title with the higher price and "moved".

Chef Aaron's Southern Cuisine, 1301 State Street: 2015(?)   2 comments

This was the follow-on operation to J. Patrick's Southern Kitchen on State Street. I'm not quite sure when it closed as I can't find it in my phonebooks. After two similarly themed closings, perhaps this is just not a good location for a down home restaurant.

HiLights / So You Want To Dance / Columbia Beauty School, 1824 Airport Boulevard: 2016-ish   3 comments

These are not great pictures of this office building at the corner of Airport Boulevard & Dale Lane as the sun was against me. Google suggests that the place has housed a variety of businesses, probably several at the same time. You can see the sign for HiLights here, which I take to be a hair salon, though I can't quite read the rest of the sign. Perhaps it was associated with the beauth school.

It is hard to see, but it appears that the ground floor of the building has stained glass windows in front, though I see no indication that it was ever a church.

I think I've mentioned my aversion to feathered fare several times here, so it should be no surprise that I never darkened the door at this Church's Chicken more or less accross from the old Shoney's. I suppose for different reasons, not enough other people did either.

UPDATE 10 March 2017: Changed the closing date from "Late 2016" to early "2017" based on the comments.

UPDATE 18 August 2017 -- It appears some sort of work has started here. The building permit is for SC Wings & Deli:

This little building on Airport Boulevard has apparently been a host of clubs over the years. I rember a few of the names that google turned up, but not all of them.

Most recently it was The Hanger Sports Bar and this Facebook page king of suggests, without ever saying so directly that it closed in late April of 2015.

Kleen Kare Cleaners & Laundry, Knox Abbott Drive: Never Opened   7 comments

This new-ish but odd little building is on Knox Abbott in between Taco Bell and Wendy's.

For the life of me I can't remember what it was right now, and am unable to come up with a street number to google it.

UPDATE 16 September 2016 -- This is one of the posts lost in a database crash. Originally it was just titled "Building", but based on the comments as I bring it back, I'm changing the post title to Kleen Kare Dry Cleaner as that what it was to be, though it never opened due to the big crash of the late 2000s.

This secluded Cayce spot has featured here before (albeit apparent
ly with the wrong street address) and 2108 State carried on with the Lizard Man tradition.

I'll admit this corner is so far off my radar that it never even crossed my mind to stop here when I wasn't in direct visual c
ontact with the place, but apparently it was pretty good. There Facebook page i
s still up for now, and if you should want to buy the building, LoopNet has you covered.

UPDATE 12 April 2017 -- As reported, now a Henry's:

Another day, another Radio Shack.

This is the one in Parkland Plaza in Cayce, and is another casualty of the chain's bankruptcy.

UPDATE 14 March 2015 -- Gone:
