This little storefront across from the former Yesterday's on Santee Avenue has been a number of things over the years. Most recently, it was Sunrise Artisan Bath and Body, until they moved into the old Portfolio Art Gallery space on Saluda back in early 2019.

Here is The State story on that move.

I wasn't aware of this sportsman's gun & thrift store in the old Gamecock Theater, but judging by the pictures on Yelp, it was an interesting place. Looking at the most recent google reviews, it appears they closed down towards the end of July.

I was in this place, once, when it was Resale Revue, and it was obvious that the big room had been a theater, what with the sloping floor and all. I expect that limits the kind of business that can move in without major work.

The Backpacker, 1215 Wayne Street: March 2019   5 comments

It seems to me that at one time, The Backpacker was on Rosewood. I have some memory of buying some dehydrated hamburgers there before a Scout camping trip. Either the owner or someone who had charge of the branded van also lived down the street for a number of years, but I don't recall specifically ever meeting them.

I am generally of the opinion that we invented civilization so as to not spend a lot of time out in the woods without a roof overhead, but to each his own, and there are some avid campers in the family (though not in the Columbia branch). At any rate, I liked the idea that if I ever had to rough it again, I knew where to go.

The State has the story, and the history of the store, which dates back to 1973.

As reported in The State as the plan was announced, West Marine, has moved from Dutch Square to Columbiana Station.

I have not yet gotten a picture of the new location, but here is the company announcement of the opening and ribbon cutting at the new store on 19 March 2018.
