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 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.
Commenter Sidney noted this Hardscrabble closing a while back, along with some macbre history.
(Hat tip to commenter Sidney)
I noticed this vacant storefront in the Shamrock Corner section of Shakespeare Road the other day. This is not far from the former Shakespeare Fish Market.
I confess I have no memory of this storefront on Shandon Street at Rosewood and the reversed marquee sign is not readable, but google suggests it was Shandon Day Span & Salon.
Anointed Design Hair Studio / Tru Cutz Barber Shop, 6908 Two Notch Road Suite C: 2011 (moved) 5 comments
This little storefront is right beside the Dentsville Best Buy and right across the Two Notch entry to the Columbia Mall perimeter road. In fact, this strip mall shares stoplight access to Two Notch with the perimeter, and it always seemed to me that when they built Best Buy they should have figured out some way to connect their parking lot with this one.
I think Tru Cutz was the last tenant here, as you can still see the word "Barber" superimposed on the window. On the other hand, I can't find a phonebook listing for them, and I can for Anointed who seem to have moved to Decker around 2011.
Normally, I would split these two businesses up, but the building is so small they're both going to be in the pictures anyway.
I like the vintage Gull Wing style of the cleaning portion, and I'm not sure why they didn't just do the whole building that way.
It appears that Alabaster moved to Broad River Road around 2009, and Crown closed around 2010. I did not see any indication that the building is for sale, and apparently the Fire Marshall thinks someone may try to refit it, so we'll see what happens there.
UPDATE 12 July 2016 -- Now Best Catch Seafood Market:
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.
