This day spa on the State Street side of Parkland Plaza looks like it was closing down in September of 2012, with new hours posted, and a fairly empty room inside.
By November, the window signage was down (though the marquee was still up), and the whole storefront was vacant.
UPDATE 17 November 2014 -- Now Venus Nail & Spa:
A new apartment complex is coming to a premier setting on Cayce’s riverfront.
Plans for a complex of about 230 units near the Blossom Street bridge have received initial approval from Cayce City Council.
The site provides a prime view both of the Congaree River and the skyline of downtown Columbia to the east.
The project would extend along Knox Abbott Drive from Axtell Drive to the city’s Riverwalk, replacing Monterrey Mexican Restaurant and the Riverside Inn, which are across the street from Guignard Park.
Monterrey Knox Abbott are now closed and are working on their new location in the old Zeus Pizza location in Parkland Plaza (not Parklane Plaza). I believe this location started as a Denny's, though according to Monterrey's closing sign, they were here for 26 years, which is no small run for a restaurant.
Well, I was going to wait until I got over to the area again to get some pictures of the abandoned old location, and the new location in operation, but that didn't happen this weekend, and there's been a lot of Taco Cid talk here lately, so I'll go ahead with what I've got.
They have moved into the old Marino's Bistro location and are now open, though they have not yet replaced the Marino's marquee.

UPDATE 21 August 2014 -- Here is the Charleston Highway location after closure:
UPDATE 10 March 2017 -- As mentioned by commenter Andrew, this building is going to pot:
Artsy Fartsy art gallery and coffee bar was one of those places I never could figure out in that I never actually saw it open, but yet it never closed either (though it seems to have rebooted several times). I like coffee, so I was prepared to stop if I ever *did* see it open, but somehow that never happened.
It looks like the place will be rezoned for a thrift store.
This building in Triangle City as been a number of different automative service operations, as I noted here. Automotive Tekniques moved in at the start of September 2011, and seems to have lasted until late last year. I think I had some photos of the place in operation, but I can put my hands on them right now.
Currently a zoning sign on the property suggests it will be changing from C-1 Intensive Commercial to C-2 General Commercial. I'm not sure what that actually means, but to me it suggests a future retail operation.

UPDATE 17 September 2016 -- This is now STS Auto Sales & Repairs. Cola Daily says they opened on 25 September 2014 and that the name stands for Sales To Service:
Looks like Airport Inn in Cayce, where ironically all the rooms are ground-floor, is renovating.
I like the blue, white & yellow color scheme on the signs. The building actually looks to be in pretty good shape, at least from a distance.
UPDATE 10 August 2013: Changed incorrect 935 address in post title to correct 1935.
UPDATE 13 May 2014 --Open again:
I don't know much about this place, but I believe they moved here (more or less across from Tony's Pizza) from Meeting Street.
I remember going to this Doctor's Care, in Triangle City right next to the former First Citizens sometime back in the early 2000s for something or other. It was perfectly fine, and they set me up with a prescription with a minimum of waiting.
I had noticed it was closed sometime ago, but never got around to getting any pictures until recently. When I did, I found that it actually is *not* closed -- they actually moved shop to 2836 Augusta Road where they still are. I don't recall any issues with the building, so I'm guessing they simply get more visibility and drive-by traffic at the new location.
My first thought at seeing this former First Citizens branch at the corner of the Charleston Highway and Platt Springs Road was that there must be some sort of sporting event in the area as the lot was packed full of cars taking advantage of the Sunday bank closure to park there.
A closer inspection revealed the actual facts, which are that the bank is gone, and the lot is being used as an impromptu (I could see no business sign at least..) used car lot. I've heard the old GM described as a bank that sold some cars, perhaps the concept is spreading...
