Furniture & Mattress Overstock, 932 North Lake Drive: Summer 2022   1 comment

Posted at 10:27 pm in closing




This storefront first featured here as Stein Mart, which closed in 2020. Last fall, it was briefly a Spirit Halloween popup, and then Furniture & Mattress Overstock opened in the spot.

It now appears that they are closing after less than a year at this location.

One curious thing is that Stein Mart was listed as 934 North Lake Drive, while Furniture & Mattress Overstock lists as 932 North Lake Drive. I'm not sure why that is, and which, if either, is actually correct.

Tic Toc Candy Shoppe, 5175 Sunset Boulevard Suite 10: June 2016   no comments

Posted at 11:51 pm in closing







Commenter James R. reports that this little candy storefront in Hope Ferry Center closed on 30 June 2016 with the retirement of the owners. By the time I finally remembered to get over there, I found that the space is already open again, this time as The Classy Cruet a fancy olive oil and vinegar emporium.

Prestige Appliance, 5140 Sunset Boulevard: October 2014 (moved)   2 comments

There was a lot of back and forth in the comments about this move, but I believe commenter James R was the first to mention that Prestige Appliance on Sunset Boulevard was gone.

In fact though it was a move, not a closing, and they have set up business at 3905 Fernandina Road in the old Fireplace Center / Southeastern Stone building:

Brix Bistro / The Bistro, 109 Old Chapin Road (Lexington): September 2011   5 comments

I'm not absolutely sure I ate at The Bistro, but I do remember specifically some years ago reading an article in The State or Free Times about a new pizza place and driving to Lexington to check it out. The restaurant definitely had an enclosed patio where I sat, so I'm thinking it was The Bistro.

In the event, I really didn't care for it. I felt that there was something to the pizza sauce that wasn't to my taste -- too sweet, if I recall correctly. (I feel the same way about The Pizza Joint).

The place is in a kind of an interesting little mini-mall with The Flight Deck restaurant which I may have to check out one day.

UPDATE 9 November 2011: Added Brix Bistro to the post title based on the comments, which led me to dig up this 2001 Free Times Review which is, I believe, the one which sent me over there in the first place.
