El Rey Leon #2, 1735 Decker Boulevard Suite 75: 2013   1 comment

Well, learn something new every day. Googling this western and urban wear outlet on Decker yields the information that El Rey Leon, means The Lion King, something that make total sense once you stop to look at it closely.

Of course that just raises the further question as to how that phrase is supposed to suggest western wear, and the secondary question as to whether I should alphabetize this one under El or Rey. (Hmm, I see the phonebook uses 'El', so that's good enough for me..).

Advance Til Payday, 1807 Decker Boulevard Suite 15: 2013   1 comment

One more empty storefront in Columbia's volatile payday lending market, this little cash advance outlet was in the same (Family Dollar) plaza as this Coin Laundry -- I'm not sure why the street address here is 1807 instead of 1735, but that seems to be the case.

UPDATE 17 Sept 2014 -- Oops, I misplaced where I took this -- it is *not* in the Family Dollar plaza, but a little further up towards Two Notch.

Coin Laundry, 1735 Decker Boulevard Unit 30: late 2000s   1 comment

This laundromat was in the Family Dollar plaza on Decker. I've been to several of the coin laundries on Decker over the years when either the washer or dryer was on the blink. My favorite is the one in front of the old Target which has very active family management -- there was always someone sweeping, mopping or otherwise keeping the place tidy, and once the woman in charge was taken aback by my incompetence at shirt folding and showed me how to do it right (it didn't take, I'm afraid). This one I never made it to.

The marquee name of Coin Laundry seems to be more a description than an official name, so I'm not exactly sure when it closed, but I'm guessing within the last few years.

Here's a wholsale fashion costume jewelry outlet on Decker in the process of closing out. It's just a few units up from the old Columbia Import / Passion location.

This little Barber & hair and nail salon sits in a strip mall almost at the intersection Decker and Faraway.

I like those old style spinning barber poles, though you never actually seem them spin anymore.

Boss Desiynz, 2205-E Decker Boulevard: late 2000s   no comments

Here's another "rainy day, don't get out of the car" posting -- it's been that kind of month!

I don't really know anything about this little storefront on Decker. From the sign and spelling, I'm guessing it was an urban fashion store. Also obviously (again from the sign) they had a telephone, but I'm unable to find them in any recent phonebook, to make a good guess as to when they closed.

How can you go under when your product is money? If you look through the Alphabetical Closings, you'll find it's easier than you might think.

This little strip mall chiropractic storefront on the west side of Decker is now empty and fairly recently I think, or at least I believe I would have noticed a banner such as the one out now.
