After Trevin mentioned that this place was closing, I drove over and got some pictures while it was still open.. and of course now can't find them: The first picture above is actually from the Lane Bryant closing.

At any rate, I used to eat here about once a week while I worked off of Bluff Road. I didn't eat the pizza because pizza for lunch tends to shut down my brain for the rest of the day, but I would get the salad bar and some garlic bread. Shoney's probably had a better salad bar, but given my very limited time for lunch, I couldn't deal with possible delays in getting the ticket, and Cici's was self-serve and perfectly adequate. I also liked the fact that they always had a survey on the the ticket for $2.00 off next time if you filled it out. That covered the drink.

Not sure what the closing circumstances were. As far as I could tell, the place did a pretty good business, and in fact while I was taking these pictures, two different cars drove by, clearly looking to eat.

UPDATE 27 April 2016 -- Here are the pix from 12 April 2016 that I couldn't find before:

I was at Panera on Garners Ferry this evening and I noticed that the Marble Slab Creamery has moved across the parking lot from the Cici's wing of the shopping center to the Panera wing. The new location is actually the old Starbucks location which became vacant when Starbucks moved into the old Qdoba location.

You can sort of see Lane Bryant in operation at the Shoppes At Woodhill if you click-through and peer behind the trees in the first shot.

Judging from the 2014 phonebook, where they still list this location, this shop must have departed in the first part of the year. I've been over there several times to eat at Ci-Ci's, but I just can't remember as my eyes automatically skip over clothing stores. I was a bit surprised to see that this wing of the plaza has a Pelham Drive address, I would have expected all the buildings to piggyback off the Garners Ferry number used by the Panera wing.

Colony House Furniture, 6033 Garners Ferry Road: Feb 2011   8 comments

Posted at 11:30 pm in Uncategorized

I actually had Colony House's going-out-of-busines circular given to me by my sister a few weeks ago and of course put it "somewhere I can't possibly forget it", meaning it has completely vanished for now.

As I recall, it was a bit vague about when Colony House would actually close its doors, but I believe it should be done by now. Apparently the store was founded in 1945, so that was a pretty good run. I can't actually say much about the store from personal experience as I've only bought one new piece of furniture in my life, and it wasn't from there. Colony House is across Garners Ferry from San Jose about where Pelham Drive comes out and it's a nice brick building though the parking lot is a bit hard to get in and out of.

As of now, the web site is still up, though it has no mention of the closing, and indeed seems not to have been updated since 2008.

UPDATE 2 Feb 2011 -- Well, I jumped the gun a little bit, as of 29 Jan, it's still open, though apparently winding down:

Updated the post title date to "Feb 2011" rather than "Jan 2011"
