First Care / Palmetto Health USC, 2406 Decker Boulevard: 1 April 2016 (moved, changed)   no comments

I'm not sure this started as a First Care but it has been that since at least 1997, and some sort of urgent care center since back into the 1980s. I remember I went there once while I was living in Fayetteville and was back in Columbia for the weekend -- it was efficient and effective. It sounds like they were caught up in the ongoing remaking of the health care industry.

La Poblanita, 1735 Decker Boulevard Suite B: Spring 2016   1 comment

I had mentioned La Poblanita back in August of 2015 as the follow on operation to Santa Fe Mexican Grill.

It would appear they never made it through their Grand Opening...

I have noticed this little strip on Decker driving by over the years, mostly because of Piper's Hair Care uwhich I never could quite figure out if it were closed or not. (It was). Now the whole place is empty and for let.

It's certainly not the worst looking real estate on the corridor.

They don't work so well once they've been under water..

I'll also note that most of the parking lot at this old Captain's Kitchen location has now been torn up, I suppose for the greening of the former restaurant space.

And, we have a new cell tower:

Feel Goods, 2632 Decker Boulevard: 6 October 2015   1 comment

Feel Goods, in the old Taco Bell and Nick's location on Decker, is an interesting case of a flood closing.

This building is raised a good bit above the old Captain's Kitchen location where Decker washed through during the 6 October 2015 flood, and I don't believe there was water in the building. However, it was nonetheless on a section of road that was closed for several weeks, and that loss of access and business was apparently enough to tip the scales, at least for now. Hopefully they will be back, but there is no signage indicating anything one way or the other.

UPDATE 9 February 2016 -- It's official now, the building is up for sale:

For many years this was Decker Billiard Club. It closed briefly and re-opened, probably unintentionally, as Decker Billaid.

I drove by recently and noticed the place is now a latin club called Serena Lounge.

Flood Damage Forest Acres / Dentsville: 11 October 2015   1 comment

Posted at 2:07 am in closing

Hopefully I can add some commentary tomorrow, but for now I just want to get these pictures out there.

UPDATE 16 October 2015: Ok, I was under the weather for a few days, but let me add a little text here now.

First, I am happy to say that even as these pictures were taken, on Sunday 11 October 2015, recovery work was in full stride. All the flooded and gutted buildings on Forest Drive had evidence that of ongoing work and cleanup, and I noticed today (15 October 2015) that the Garden Center in Forest Lake Shopping Center was once again stocked and open for business.

KNC Trading, 2632 Decker Boulevard: Late August 2015   1 comment

Well, you may best remember this spot as Red Wing Rollerway:

but whatever follow-on operation KNC Trading did, they're not doing it any more.

The vans pulled up in late August, and now, as of 8 September, the building is empty and has once more been sold:

Well, it appears that the Decker Village shopping center in the 2300 block of Decker Boulevard has been bought out, and is starting a major renovation. The first step has been to take the distinctive triangular steel canopies off of the shopping center storefronts. I have to say that so far, it is definitely not an improvement, as you can see in the "before" pictures below. Hopefully some new facade work will be forthcoming as part of the upfit. As the sign says, the new owners are Ziff Properties Inc, but so far their site doesn't have any details about their future plans for property.
