El Camino Mexican Restaurant, 9221 Two Notch Road Suite 60: 2016   6 comments

Posted at 12:42 am in closing



El Camino was the follow-on operation to Golden City in the Big Lots plaza on Two Notch.

This one came and went before I even knew it was there, which is a little odd as the name El Camino should have caught my eye as I used to work for a Bay Area company, and El Camino Real is the main drag there.

East Bay Gourmet, 2330 Two Notch Road: 2013   no comments

Posted at 12:58 am in closing


As far as I can tell East Bay Gourmet was a Charleston area based butcher chain founded in the early 90s which later expanded into Columbia & Wilmington. An old version of their web site is archived here.

Their local operation was apparently in this Two Notch building until around 2013 after moving from 1465 Bella Vista Drive, down the street from the former Studio 54. They are not listed in any location in the current phonebook, and the web site is no longer active, so I believe the whole chain has closed down.

Budget Mobile, 6908 Two Notch Road Suite E: 2015   no comments

Posted at 12:06 am in closing



This storefront is in the Two Notch strip mall that almost abuts Best Buy. I've always thought it was a little curious that Best Buy never worked out some sort of deal to bring a lane around behind their building to get access to the traffic light here as they have none.

Anyway, this cellphone operation seems to have closed in 2015 judging from my phonebooks.

Shoe Time, 6432 Two Notch Road: Spring 2016   no comments

I'm guessing about the closing date here. The last post on their Facebook page is from February 2016, but I think the closing is much more recent than that given the signs are still up and the fixtures still in place.

Serenity Day Spa, 9308 Two Notch Road Suite B: Spring 2010   5 comments

Posted at 12:34 am in closing





I noticed the other day that the Doctor's office on the west side of the Farm Bureau building is becoming First Class Bar & Grill.

UPDATE 23 June 2016: Well, as established in the comments, this bar is not going into the doctor's office. I was misled by the little sign on the side of the building with the office name -- it actually is an arrow pointing to the other side. So what was this place? Looking at the door in the west side with the new 'A' restaurant sticker on it, I see that it calls out the space behind the door as unit B & C. With that information, I see that unit B, at least, was once Serenity Day Spa

Synergy Wellness & Weight Loss / Northeast Animal Clinic, 10202 Two Notch Road / 10200 Two Notch Road : 27 May / 1 June 2016 (moved)   1 comment

Posted at 12:58 am in closing

I'm not sure what is being built in front of Target at 10200/10202 Two Notch, but the former Synergy Wellness & Weight Loss building has already been razed and the former Northeast Animal Clinic building is aparently not long for the world. Both businesses will continue in new locations, Synergy at 10607 Two Notch and Northeast eventually at 10171 Two Notch, but currently at 7352 Parklane.

You can see good views of the razed building at this Google Streetview link.



Here's the new Synergy location. Pretty sure from the look that it's a former Russell Jeffcoat:

Aeropostale, 486 Town Center Place Suite 5: June 2016   1 comment

Posted at 1:07 am in closing






This closing is a fallout from the chain's bankruptcy which includes the shuttering of 113 of its 739 US stores:

If you're a teenager shopping for clothes, you're probably not going to Aeropostale, a fact that became glaringly obvious when the apparel retailer filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Wednesday.

Maybe they shouldn't have put stale in their name..

The location of trees in front of this Sandhill storefront, and the desire not to be in the window's reflection made getting good pictures iffy, but you can see the standardized Store Closing and discount placards that show up at many of these managed sell-outs.

Gandy Auto Sales, 5602 Two Notch Road: 2015   1 comment

Posted at 1:00 am in closing




It's curious since I drive this stretch of road several times a week that I have no memory of ever seeing this building in operation as Gandy Auto Sales, but Google Street View has the image, and the phonebook confirms they were there at least since 2008.

There appears to be some sort of land clearing going on in the lot just adajacent to this one on the east.

Nancy's Nook, 5445 Two Notch Road: May 2016   2 comments

As I believe I've said before, I think the name of this Two Notch couples' store is about a syllable short..

This place was for many years a risque book, magazine and video store, which rebranded in 2012 and was open at least through Cinco de Mayo 2016 (NSFW).
