Archive for the ‘Sunset Boulevard’ tag
This small building in Capitol Shopping Center at the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Meeting Street in West Columbia has been a number of things over the years.
Judging from the look of the place, it started as some sort of fast food chain outlet, but I am unable to recall which. Sometime after that, I believe I recall a Greek restaurant setting up there. Most recently it was Dish & Desing Catering until sadly the owner passed away and they had to close.
These pictures were taken not too long after Halloween, as you might infer from the deflated Jack O'Lantern somebody left in the parking lot.
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.
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:

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.

I had driven past this Firefly location dozens of times over the past year or so, and never really cosidered the "& Games" part of the Firefly name. Since it was a bit off the beaten path, I had it mentally pegged as some sort of specialty toy store, perhaps educational toys, but never really considered that the "games" might be for "gamers".
In the event, it appears that they are, and the new location at 657 Saint Andrews Road continues to host gaming events.

UPDATE 11 January 2014 -- Here is a belated picture of their new location in the old E Z Bingo storefont on Saint Andrews Road.
Commenter James notes that the larger part of this Sunset Boulevard building is now for lease.
It appears that this is the result of Good As New Consignments vacating the left suite of the building and consolidating with Good As New Furniture in the right suite.

It appears from their facebook page that a commenter saw this location as Pancho's on 8 March, so I'm using that as a date, though it would have been a bit earlier.
I never ate at this location, but in general do like the one on Beltline. From the name, I suppose this is now a second location for Pancho's on Forest Drive in the old Redbone Alley building.

Commenter Brian says of Miss Mattie's in Lexington, Her red velvet cupcakes were the best I ever had.
The shop is in McCauley Square on Sunset Boulevard, north of Hudson's. This is the same strip mall that housed Yumilicious.
Commenter Brian also notes that the closing was originally flagged as temporary, but that was some time ago. All the furnishings are still intact, so that could still be the intention, but the flat Closed on the sign doesn't offer much hope.
