As shown in the first picture, the main suite for Bike Street USA was what is now Jackie's Uniforms, but the Bicycles signage remains on the second suite they had to the right of that. As you can also see from the firt shot, the store started as Bike To Nature, which moved here from across the street when its original building was slated for demolition.

After moving, the store was bought by the Bike Street USA chain, which went bankrupt in November 2014 as described here.

I was eating lunch at Grecian Gardens the other day, and noticed that the building next door (North) was vacant. It turns out that this was the former location of Agape Primary Care & Therapy who have now moved down the road into Lexington at 4711 Sunset Boulevard.

Here's another home-cookin' type restaurant I never got around to trying, this one in the old Southern Skillet location in West Columbia across from New Brookland Baptist.

I like comfort food but I tend to eat lunch later than they were open, and it's a long way to drive..

Comic Nirvana, 5135 Sunset Boulevard: April 2015 (moved)   6 comments

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.

Super Dollar, 2271 Sunset Boulevard: April 2015 (not closed)   6 comments

As commenter James R reports, Super Dollar in Sunset Court across from Grecian Gardens has closed shop. This store was the follow-on operation to Fred's which closed in June of 2012. I'm not sure when Super Dollar opened, but I believe the storefront was vacant for a good while.

UPDATE 3 May 2015: Commenter Brandon Brown reports this store as not closed, so I am going with that in the title as an update.

Commenter Megan reports this Lexington Hibachi spot as closed around the start of the month.

Fast Food / Greek Restaurant / Dish & Design Catering, 420 Meeting Street: 2010s   6 comments

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.

Alibaba's Pipe Emporium, 4884 Sunset Boulevard: Fall 2014   5 comments

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.

Prestige Appliance, 5140 Sunset Boulevard: October 2014 (moved)   no comments

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:
