I had meant to do this post before Free Comic Book Day which was 2 May 2015, but that was not to be.
At any rate, as reported by commenter James R, Comic Nirvana has moved from in front of Best Buy in Lexington to The Smith Centre just south of the I-20 Waffle House.
I have to say it's not an easy location to find. They have listing on the roadside marquee for the office plaza, but actually locating the store is a bit of a puzzle. In the event, you can't see it from the default parking area in front, you have to drive around back and duck into a little back nook. Hopefully they will have some more directional signs up soon, along with their main storefront sign. In fact, they may by now as these pictures are a week or two old.

Commenter Megan reports this Lexington Hibachi spot as closed around the start of the month.
But you can still get some dogs..

Commenter James R points out that this storefront in Lexington across the street from The Flight Deck is empty again.
It last featured here in early 2012 when the first picture was taken, and it was transitioning from Mi Casa to Mi Taco.
I'm a little confused as to what happened. At the time of that post, people said it had previously been a Mi Pueblito and then it was apparently a Mi Pueblito again in 2014, so I'm not sure what happened to Mi Taco, or when.

A Three Hour Cruise..
I'm not too familiar with Gilligan's, but I know there was at least one other in Litchfield Beach which closed last year and is now an ABC store. This one was in Lexingtion on North Lake Drive just east of the Books-A-Million strip mall.
I think that clearly this building and the old Zorba's On Two Notch shared the same design. Whether that means this was originally a Zorba's or that they were both originally something else I'm not sure.

UPDATE 24 February 2015: Updated the closing date in the post title based on the comments.
Bentley's Beach House was the follow-on operation in the old Dam Bar & Grill spot.
It looks like the next tenant is already lined up with a sign announcing Mari's Lake House, thus continuing the "water" and "house" theme the location has going on..

I'm not exactly sure when head shop Alibaba's Pipe Emporium on Sunset closed. Commenter Brian noted the storefront as empty in December 2014. When I took the first pictures on 17 August 2014, the Sunset location already seemed to be closed during what would be normal hours though the store looked fully stocked. At that time, a sign directed customers to the Irmo store on Woodrow Street. I know they has some legal trouble in May 2014 though I am unsure if that was what finally caused the closing or not.

I think we're all Bozos on this bus.
As reported by commenter John R, this former Carolina Wings & Rib House is now, once again, ... a Carolina Wings & Rib House.
The rebranding as Daddy Mac's lasted somewhat less than a year.

Here's a nice little brick building in Lexington at the point where US-378 transitions from North Lake Drive to Columbia Avenue. That transition and interchange makes this site a bit iffy to get in and out of, but at least on a Sunday it wasn't too bad.
I like the blue shutters, which give it a nice Greek touch.
UPDATE 23 October 2014 -- Added interior shot.
UPDATE 18 March 2015 -- As reported by commenter James R, this is now a Smart Phone Medic:
When I blogged the closing of the Harbison Wing Nuts back in June, commenter badger mentioned that the Lexington location on Sunset Boulevard had closed in March. Somehow it took me between then and now to get over there and get some pictures, but surprisingly the marquee is still up after six months.
