Something is going on at the Garners Ferry Target. Just looking at all the containers parked in the lot, I would guess some kind of major remodeling, though I still think of that as a pretty new store. I suppose I could have found out by just going in, but I didn't have time right then.

Anyone know?

Mr. PC, 201 Harbison Boulevard: 2021   no comments

Mr. PC has several area locations. This one was on the upper part of Harbison in a little strip housing a Jimmy Johns. Mr. PC itself was around the bottom corner on a lower level and not very visible from the street or parking lot. It was kind of an unpleasant rainy day, so I didn't get out to get any closeup pictures, but you can just about read the logo if you imagine the railings aren't there. In the event I went there with a broken no-name android tablet from one of my neices, but there was no way to get parts for something like that, and she would be better off with something more mainstream.

Columbia Powersports have closed this location on Two Notch Road, not far from Arcadia Lakes Drive. Commenter Gypsie supplies the information that they had been here since 1976. It appears that they have consolidated operations at the 3750 Fernandina Road location.

In the meantime, this building is to become (or perhaps already is) Precision Pumping Systems.

The Carousel, 4525 Forest Drive: March 2022   1 comment

There isn't any sign on the door that I can see, but google agrees with commenter Justin that The Carousel A Chic Kid's Botique in Forest Village is closed. I believe this space would once have been part of The Happy Bookseller, so probably 2009 is the earliest they could have opened.

Rick's Bait And Tackle Party Shop, 3050 Bluff Road: 2020   no comments

Rick's was a fishing and ABC store right across Bluff Road from the Columbia Industrial Park. I never went in, but I would see it often driving to and from work a few years ago. This is right next door to the old Cricket Club/Diamonds and the old Grasshopper Club/Vet's Hall. I'm not sure when they closed, but it's been long enough to board the place up and take down the road sign, so I'm going to guess 2020.

I was not aware of Primal Gourmet which is a "kitchen & market" on Meeting Street. Apparently the did a lot of prepared meals as well as being an SCDA flagged marketplace. As commenter Heath reports, they are regrouping while dealing with, staffing, supply-chain, pricing and pandemic issues, and expect to be back in some format soon.

Commenter Andrew supplies this link to a ColaDaily story, and you can read a somewhat longer explanation from their door note if you click through to the large version above. Hopefully they will be back soon.

Here's yet another store very much in my orbit into which I never went for one reason or another. I believe that the last time I bought clothes I thought about looking through the shirts in this Trenholm Plaza storefront, but in the event I ended up at Belk's & Amazon.

With this closing, there are now three empty spaces on this side of the plaza, to include the old Stein Mart (which was a Halloween store for a while) and Rosso.

On the other hand, there is now a Mac store in the old Michaels Jewelry, so they are still able to fill vacancies.

Like many of the old buildings with a faux stone exterior, this location on Knox Abbott Drive was once a Popeye's restaurant. However since at least 2009, and probably well before, it was the location for Vacuum Center.

Recently they moved shop to 1306 Charleston Highway, a building which was also a restaurant: Chappy's Fish & Chips:

Nostalgia Antiques and Collectibles, 500 Beltline Boulevard: 21 November 2021   1 comment

Although I must have driven by it many times, I was not aware of Nostalgia Antiques on Beltline. Judging by their Facebook page, I might well have found some items there, probably more on the "Collectibles" side of things.

You can see their closing announcement on their Facebook, but you might want to check it in the future as well, as they intend to continue selling online and out of their home.

C & J Automotive, 6336 Saint Andrews Road: 2022   no comments

C & J Automotive is nestled on a narrow strip of land in between the train tracks and Saint Andrews Road in the Seven Oaks section of Irmo. It is not too far past Sno Biz.

It appears to me that the lot remains in business while they are looking for a buyer, so I am just putting an indifinite "2022" as the closing date.
