Copper Lane, 10509 Two Notch Road: Spring 2015   22 comments

Posted at 10:55 pm in closing


I'm away from my phonebooks right now and am not entirely sure when this Pontiac botique closed, but this picture is from June, so I'll say Spring 2015.

Now Pontiac and this little strip mall are just a hop-skip-and-jump away from I-20 and Sandhill, but when I was growing up, Pontiac was so far away we hardly knew it existed..

Sansbury Eye Center, 7367 Two Notch Road: 1 September 2015 (moved)   1 comment

Posted at 11:48 pm in closing








I was driving Two Notch this evening, and noticed that the Sansbury Eye Center by FedEx Office was closed. A closer look at the door revealed that this office has moved to 2313 Beltline, next to the Subway.

In fact, I had noticed the new sign for Sansbury on that building, but since I did not realize it was a move and not a new office, I didn't bother to take any pictures. I'll get a few next time I drive by. I was struck by how big this Two Notch space is -- I don't think the Beltline location is anywhere near as extensive.

Anna's Linens, 10050 Two Notch Road Suite 8: Late July 2015   no comments

Posted at 12:14 am in Uncategorized




Here is another Anna's Linens closing, part of the continuing fallout of the chain's bankruptcy. This storefront is in the Wal Mart plaza on Two Notch, and is the former site of Ya Food.

These pictures were taken in mid July 2015, and I expect the store is actually closed by now, though I have not driven by there since.

Krystal / Pearle Vision Express, 7301 Two Notch Road: 1990s / 2006   16 comments

Posted at 11:55 pm in Uncategorized




I believe this building in the Dentsville K Mart parking lot was built as a Krystal in their first wave of expansion into SC. At the time they were playing up their differences from other fast food outlets with the main thing I recall being that they had a couple of non-standard vegetable offerings like fried mushrooms and maybe okra. For some reason, the chain never thrived here and now has no Columbia stores and very few South Carolina stores. Of course now their slogan is apparently Stupid Good, so they've got that going for them..

Pearle was here at least through the February 2005 phonebook, but was gone by the February 2008 one.

A Florist & More, 10509 Two Notch Road Suite A: Spring 2015   no comments

I don't get out to Pontiac very often, so I was only vaguely aware of this little strip mall near Pontiac House Of Pizza, but it looks like there are a couple of vacancies right now.

Unlimited Shopping & Retail, 9557 Two Notch Road: 2014   1 comment

I noticed this vacant retail slot in the little strip mall near Sesqui and Maurice's on which I've done several posts.

Judging by their Facebook page this fashion store probably closed around the start of 2014.

Sandler's Fine Jewelry, 471 Town Center Place #13: Late May 2015   no comments

Posted at 10:33 pm in Uncategorized




Curiously when I went by Sandler's at Sandhill the other week, there were no closing signs on the store. The billboards were up in several places however. They don't give a date, but I'm guessing the end of May would be a logical time.

Wright's Eatery, 2538 Two Notch Road: Spring 2015   2 comments

It appears this little building on the L'il Cricket lot at the corner of Two Notch & Covenant has changed hands again.

It is now K-Wayzz Corner Grill.

R. H. Lee & Co. Auctioneers, 2305 Two Notch Road: early 2000s   2 comments

Posted at 1:09 am in Uncategorized




LoopNet says this building is mostly one huge open space, which makes sense for an auction hall. R. H. Lee lists here as late as the February 1997 phonebook, but were gone by the February 2005 phonebook, so I'm guessing early 2000s for the closing date. I'm not sure what happened to the front of the building -- whether it's just boarded up, or someone has stripped the exterior for some reason.

Coldwater Creek, 630-17 Promenade Place: May 2014   2 comments

Posted at 2:11 am in Uncategorized


While I was out taking pictures for La Bag Lady, I noticed this empty storefront across the street. It turns out to have been women's clothier Coldwater Creek, and WLTX has the story of how the whole chain went bankrupt in April of 2014.

Apparently they had a Columbiana Mall location as well.
