Something is going on at the Garners Ferry Target. Just looking at all the containers parked in the lot, I would guess some kind of major remodeling, though I still think of that as a pretty new store. I suppose I could have found out by just going in, but I didn't have time right then.

Anyone know?

As pointed out by commener Justin S., the Advance Auto Parts store across from the Aldi at 7613 Garners Ferry Road has now moved just a little up the street to 7531 Garners Ferry. In the meantime, this, very checker-boarded, storefront is empty.

This Synovus out on Garners Ferry Road is on the countdown now for a closure in Mid-January next year. Commenter Joe Shlabotnik notes that the suggested alternate location for this branch's customers is quite a drive from here. I suspect many people will make other arrangements.

Food Mart & Grocery / Secret's Convenience Store, 11409 Garners Ferry Road: 2019   1 comment

I'm guessing this building was at one time a "country store" type place that made the switchover to "convenience store". As near as I can tell from google reviews, it was Food Mart & Grocery as recently as three years ago, and the roadside sign suggests it reopened as Secret's sometime after that, though the length of the grass suggests that incarnation didn't last too long.

To the best of my memory, I was only in this bank once. And it was fine, you know -- a bank.

On their window sign, they try to spin this closing as a move, but of course the branch farther up the road was already there. Hopefully the staff were able to go to other branches, but this is a closing. The sign is a bit unusual as well in that it doesn't give a date, which these things usually do.

I'm not sure how this address can be 4800, as this is the first block of Garners Ferry Road, but that transition area has always been a bit odd.

I was driving through Cedar Terrace the other evening, and noticed that Vaccums Etc had moved out of their store there. It appears they have gone into the old Forest & Grant Photo Imaging storefront by Richland Mall on Forest Drive.

Bi-Lo, 7830 Garners Ferry Road: 14 February 2021   7 comments

I stopped at this Bi-Lo on Sunday, and while it was rapidly emptying out, there was still a good bit there, and they hadn't started randomly consolidating the shelves. I picked up some long lasting sundries like shampoo, hot sauce & spices at a 15% discount.

According to The Post & Courier, this store is not going to be converted into a Food Lion and there are no current plans for a new tenant in the building.

(Hat tip to commenter Alan, and possibly others -- there has been a lot of talk about Bi-Lo).

UPDATE 13 December 2021: Now a Food Lion:

Adrenaline Trampoline Park & Entertainment Center, 7451 Garners Ferry Road: March 2020   3 comments

According to The State Adrenaline trampoline park opened on 26 May 2018 in the old Piggly Wiggly building. I used to love trampolines, always trying to visit King's Funland when at Pawleys, but I have to admit the thought of getting on one now would scare me to death. That's gravity and middle age for you!

I know my niece went to this location at least once, and actually had another free pass that she never got around to redeeming. Now, of course, it's too late. Adreneline has been closed since the start of the lockdown, and sometime in the last month or so, they announced they would not be coming back.

I'm not sure what the deal with the tiger was.

Pier 1 Imports, 6090 Garners Ferry Road Suite D: July 2020   2 comments

I have written about Pier 1 Imports before and don't have much to say about this store. I think I was inside once some ten years or so ago. The whole chain is in bankruptcy now and all the stores are shutting. Wikipedia says they are still hoping for a buyer to keep the online side of the brand alive, but to me that seems like a longshot.

UPDATE 16 September 2021 -- As mentioned in the comments, now, temporarily a Spirit Haloween:
